Upload ORBX Scene for Rendering
Guiding you through your first upload
Using Octane Standalone or any of the OctaneRender supported plugins, export your scene as an ORBX file. From there, navigate to the Scenes page by clicking on the "Scenes" tab in the top right. Click on the cloud icon and select an OctaneRender Package File (files with .orbx extensions).

[SECURITY NOTE]: When you are uploading Scenes to Render Network, each file is encrypted during the uploading process and cannot be retrieved once on Render Network. As a result, Render Network does not fully function as cloud storage and we encourage storing a backup of your work internally.
This process varies for some OctaneRender plugins that are more deeply integrated into the Host 3D Content Creation tool. For example, with Cinema4D, please consult the 'Octane Cloud Rendering' section of the OctaneRender for Cinema4D manual.
The latest plugin revisions, dubbed R8 (which can be viewed here), most notably include a new ORBX export command to the live viewer specifically for RNDR Jobs. Redubbed “Animated package for RNDR (orbx)”, you can call the new method from the live viewer alongside the old method, which is still present in R8. In addition, there have been speed improvements made on several different cases for animated ORBX exports, in both the Octane Render Settings method and the “Animated package for RNDR (orbx)” command.

These improvements greatly reduce the friction between creation in C4D and exporting to the Render Network for final frame rendering. We highly recommend that all C4D plugin users test out this new method using the Render Network in their workflows to see a noticeable improvement in work time and efficiency.
