Octane is an excellent choice for Blender, along with Cycles and Eevee. It’s known as the fastest and unbiased render engine with many features for animation, VFX, etc. In some previous articles, we have guided you on how to install OctaneRender for Blender, or OctaneRender Prime Free Tier for Blender (so that you can try it free before actually buying it). In this article, let’s troubleshooting “not activated” error on Octane for Blender if you might encounter it.
Above is the “not activated” message appear after you start the render but the rendered image is not showing. The solution for that is checking the activation state of the OctaneServer. You can go to the Render rollout menu.
You can also re-authenticate the plugin from the Render rollout menu.
Sometimes you might receive an error saying “All OSE License Unavailable…”. You should check and make sure that a Render Node daemon from OctaneRender® Standalone is not running on the Primary Render Node.
