This is an exceptional animation that deserves to be in the spotlight. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Lamborghini, one of our users (Niuq Cam) produced and directed this stunning animation, which is entirely rendered with Octane (the sound is amazing as well).
This is our final preview of OctaneRender 1.5. The following videos (rendered on 4x GTX 680) show that the standalone version of Octane is now able to import Alembic animations with animated deformable geometry and render them in real-time using a Lua script:

ORBX and OctaneCloud AMIs on AWS

Since the launch, we’ve been blown away by the interest and support we’ve gotten from the AWS community. Over 500 AWS customers subscribed in a matter of weeks. Thousands of hours of ORBX.js streams were launched, even before we saw our first usage report from AWS.
