A handful of assets from OTOY appeared in the Unity Asset Store to announce Octane for Unity, including the import of Octane orbx scenes, pathtraced light baking, and an emmisive shader. Octane is a GPU renderer that requires Nvidia’s CUDA technology. 25+ 3D applications can send scenes to Octane Render. Octane and Unity2017 are required.
“OctaneRender for Unity is now available in preview, demonstrating physically accurate rendering for the first time inside of the game engine. The release is the first phase of a partnership that will bring a GPU-accelerated rendering pipeline into Unity, delivering cinematic path-tracing to Unity’s new scene composition tools, Timeline and Cinemachine. This powerful storytelling toolkit will enable millions of Unity creators worldwide to compose beautiful, film quality scenes and sequences.”
