Octane Render Material Experiment

Generally I do not find enough time for making experiments with Octane. But tonight I decided to push my bed time little bit further.

There is not a fancy stuff but it is quite good way to understanding some octane shader tools. You can download my scene and psd file from here

Cinema 4d Quixel Workflow Tutorial

Shark Texturing with Quixel and C4d Octane Render Shader workflow

I really like to work with Quixel. It helps me lot for my weak side of texturing. Now i am more confident than before when i start a new texturing project. This my short tutorial to show how it is easy to use. I hope u like it.

Important tips for beginners.

  • good Uv map in 0-1 grid
  • clean color Id map
  • clean normal map
  • not necessary but  ambient occlusion map

beautiful tutorials for Quixel 
I use ChrisMills’s amazing script for getting Quixel map to Octane. U can download it from https://render.otoy.com/forum/download/file.php?id=47991

New Workflow

Real time 3d tools are so popular after the GPU revelation. I decided to change my workflow after the Siggraph 2015.  It can be looking easy but it is quite risky in the middle of some continuous projects. I have been working different render engines since 10 years Mental ray, Turtle, Vray or Arnold. My first step was changing my render engine to gpu base one.


I watched so many compression and tutorial videos related GPU base render engines. Finally I decided to try Octane Render and I used  Octane Render demo version for month and I decided to buy it. I got for Cinema 4D version of it. I also made some changes on my desktop like a new gfx 970 graphic card. It is not enough for by self but it is ok for introduction.


Second Step was texturing. I could not decided between Subtance Designer and Quixel long time but after the one month test I decided to go with Quixel. It is working with Photoshop and very easy to understand and it has also very good and active quixel community support.

I got some render with Octane and Quixel you can see them on my gallery section
