How to Update to Octane V4.0

Hello every one! This update is a little different then the most of them, because this update is not a video.
The reason for this being that I wanted to get this info out there as soon as possible for you guys, but don't worry, a video for this topic is on its way!

To hold you guys over though, here is what you need to do if you want to use Octane V4.0 right now, if you already have Octane V3.0 already.

#1 Log into your Otoy account here.

#2 Select download and then set your Software selection to "Octane Render for Cinema 4D". Download the windows or Mac version of Octane render and install it as you would any installation of Octane for Cinema 4D



#3 Now go to the "Shop" section of the Otoy site here, and make sure you are logged in. After that, select "Upgrade" under the Purchase Octane Render section.

After you have done this, you will be guided through the Octane V4 Update process.

#5 After you have your Octane account upgraded to V4.0, and have installed Octane V4.0 with your copy of Cinema 4D, you can now start Cinema 4D.

Select "Download" and you will start downloading and installing the the Nvidia cuDNN files you need to run Octane V4.0.
