Powerful, High-speed cloud render farm for C4D with Octane render

Cinema4D is a  powerful 3D modeling robust software, developed by MAXON computer, based in Germany. It gives an extensive suite of tools that aid 3D artists to give amazing results. Cinema 4D is proficient in procedural and polygonal modeling, texturing, lighting or rendering. In this modern, fast-going world where 3D production is so in demand, this program stands out and is very trustworthy for the artists who are professionals as well as beginners both.

And when it comes to the rendering process, one of the difficult parts of the design workflow, designers always would like to find for themselves the most effective and suitable renderer, and Octane render is one of the most likely names they call out together. As we all know, Octane is one of the world’s first and fastest GPU-accelerated, unbiased, physically correct renderers. This renderer was developed by a New Zealand-based company called Refractive Software, Ltd in 2008, and was later taken over by the OTOY in 2012. Now it is being used widely in feature films, commercials, and even architectural rendering, including Cinema 4D.

Hardware requirements for OctaneRender

Although Octane can take advantage of GPU cards to speed up the rendering time significantly, designers will need a well-rounded and optimized solution that is capable of supporting all these GPUs and make full use of the power of this powerful renderer. With this in mind, iRender will help you to explore the computer hardware giving the best-bang-for-the-buck and reveal the most Powerful, High-speed servers that we are offering for C4D with Octane render.

Regarding the Operating System, Octane currently supports all major platforms including: Windows® 7 or higher (64-bit), Linux® (64-bit), and MacOS® 10.13.6 High Sierra (NOTE: 10.14 Mojave and 10.15 Catalina do not support NVIDIA CUDA).

Besides, OctaneRender requires the latest CUDA 10 drivers and a CUDA-enabled NVIDIA video card with support for compute capability 3.0 or higher. This renderer also requires a minimum of 8 GB RAM, and recommend one is 16 GB or more. Texture limits and differing power efficiency ratings also apply depending on the GPU microarchitecture. GPUs from the GeForce line are usually clocked higher and render faster than the more expensive Quadro and Tesla GPUs. As OctaneRender does not use the CPU for rendering, a fast multi-core CPU is not required, but it does significantly improve scene-loading speeds.

Compute capabilities required for octane features:

Texture count limitations: 

So, to sum up, for Octane Version 3.03.2 or higher, a computer with multi GPU cards such as Nvidia GTX Titan X, GTX 1080, GTX 1070 are recommended, and with Octane Version 3.08 or higher, Octane users should use Nvidia RTX or Nvidia Titan V.

Powerful, High-speed server for C4d with Octane render

Now let’s come to the next and also the most interesting part, in which we will reveal to you the most suitable and affordable service to speed up your rendering time amazingly. 

iRender is a Vietnamese company operating internationally that is based on the model of IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service), which provides the GPUs and CPUs on the cloud for 3D rendering for rent. The GPUs used are  RTX 2080Ti, RTX 3080, and RT3090 with heavy-duty processors having multiple cores to support the heaviest workload. At iRender, we provide a variety of packages with powerful CPU & GPU: 1/2/6 Nvidia GTX & RTX and CPU configuration: Dual Xeon E5-2673 v3 (24 cores), RAM: 128 GB and Storage (NVMe SSD) is 512GB, which allows users to utilize the rendering speed. However, there is an extremely unique rendering solution at iRender for all Octane users. Here we support you to render quickly with Octane no matter what license you are using. We offer physical machines – no virtualization with a specific Multi-GPUs server for designers using Redshift, Cycles, Octane, etc. You will install any software and render with whatever engine you want through Remote Desktop Application. Due to our Tier III standard Data Center, you are completely in control of your projects with Octane render.

1. Powerful server for OctaneRender Studio license

Features:

  • RT Core and NVLink support on NVIDIA RTX GPUs (2 GPU limit)
  • Octane X: AMD GPUs supported on macOS 10.15.6+ (More info)
  • EmberGenFX: Full commercial license included during public beta (More info)

Product specifications:

  • Requires a CUDA® 10 capable NVIDIA® graphics card on Windows/Linux or AMD Vega/Navi GPU on macOS 10.15.6+
