Submission Options

The general Deadline options are explained in the Job Submission documentation, and the Draft/Integration options are explained in the Draft and Integration documentation. The Octane specific options are:

  • Octane Scene File: Specify the Octane scene file(s) to render. If you have an animation with one OCS file per frame, you just need to select one of the OCS files from the sequence.
  • Output File: The output file path. This is optional and can be left blank.
  • Render Target: Select the target to render. This list is automatically populated based on the selected OCS file.
  • Single Frame Job: Check this option if you are submitting a single frame to render, as opposed to an animation consisting of a sequence of OCS files.
  • Override Sampling: Overrides the maximum samples in the OCS file.
  • Command Line Args: Additional command line arguments to pass to the renderer.

Plug-in Configuration

You can configure the Octane plug-in settings from the Monitor. While in super user mode, select Tools -> Configure Plugins and select the Octane plug-in from the list on the left.
