  • Frames rendered: 61061
  • Frames failed: 1465
  • Frame success rate: 97.6%
  • Most concurrent nodes on the network: 11
  • # of miners: 35
  • # of artists: 3
  • Frames rendered: 82992
  • Frames failed: 3800
  • Frame success rate: 95.4% [Note: The decrease in success rate was expected as we added more complex scenes for stress testing]
  • Most concurrent nodes on the network: 25
  • # of miners: 53
  • # of artists: 7
  • Job allocation process now utilizes efficient asset management to save network resources. These include reusing assets that are already held in local node memory, creating 2–3x speed improvements in many scenes. RNDR also holds job data and assets in memory up to usable RAM limit in order to quickly render repeat work.
  • GPU temperature and RAM graphs visualized for each GPU on RNDR
  • Preliminary Scoring Algorithms for intelligent assignment optimization
  • Stability improvements: improved RAM usage and memory security
  • Frame and Batch Approval for rapid job validation and payment
  • Improved Frame Preview / Approval Flow and display of Job Status
  • Improved calculation of RNDR Usage based on work performed and Statistics around node and job life-cycles.
  • Accounting: auto-approval preventing delays in miner payout, accounting section for artists to track RNDR usage over time
OctaneRender 2019 GTC Presentation slides
  • OctaneRender 2019.1 XB1OSL and procedural vertex displacement, new rounded edges, OSL Volume shaders, bloom/glare thresholding, improved volume AI denoiser, composite material node and Octane’s biggest ever material overhaul: layered materials.
  • OTOY is Launch Partner in NVIDIA Creator Ready Driver Program — OctaneRender 2019.2 announced as one of the first RTX Accelerated Apps in launch of the NVIDIA Creator Ready Driver Program optimized for RTX
  • RTX OctaneBench 2019— A preview of the OctaneBench 2019 update allowing Octane users to benchmark the maximum possible speed boost Octane will get from RTX-acceleration in Turing RTX GPUs. This an experimental version of OctaneBench with updates planned for 2019.
  • Summary of GTC slides — with key features discussed in more detail
