How to submit a job with 3ds Max and Octane Renderer

Open the scene you want to render online in 3ds Max with Octane Renderer and open the render setup.

3D Render Setup for 3ds Max with Octane Renderer

In the 'Time Output' section, make sure to set if you are sending a single frame or an animation to the render cloud. In the 'Output Size' section, you have to define the render resolution.

In the 'Render Output' section, make sure the 'Save File' option is checked. Click on 'Files...' to define the output name and the rendering format.

Select the format, save the path and set a name for your output. Afterward, you click on 'Save'.

Under the 'Kernel' tab you have to set the Max Samples. This parameter will affect the render time and the quality but it depends on your scene, so please do some local tests before submitting the job to the render cloud.

Close the 3ds Max render setup and click on 'Render now' in your toolbar to open the RebusFarm render setup window.

After configuring your RebusFarm settings, please click on the button 'Upload to RebusFarm' at the bottom of the RebusFarm setup window.

A new window will open for RebusFarm messages, showing all the relevant information, warnings, and errors your scene may have.

If you don’t get an error message, please proceed by clicking on 'Send to RebusFarm' to upload your job to the render cloud.

The Rebus Farminizer will upload your render job including all the assets required for rendering.  You can check the progress of the upload and rendering by visiting the ControlCenter. Once the upload process is completed, the rendering process will start automatically if you activated the 'Autostart render' option before uploading. If not, you will have to start the rendering manually by clicking on the 'Start render' button in the ControlCenter. Check our 'How to use the ControlCenter' section for more details about the ControlCenter.

As soon as the render job is completed, your results will automatically be downloaded from the render cloud to the output save path that you set in your render configuration.
