Octane job submission overview
In order to use Octane Standalone, scene files must be exported into the .orbx format. This can be done from any of the DCC’s that contain an Octane plugin. Otoy has a demonstration video that walks users through this from within Cinema 4D. You may watch this video here:
Please place the exported .orbx file in an empty folder prior to job submission. This will minimize the amount of data that the agent uploads with the job. Select the Octane Standalone version you wish to use in the agent Submit Job tab, and point to the exported .orbx file you created. The remaining user input required to submit a job is common across all other render applications.
