Octane Render was developed by Refractive Software in 2009 and allows unbiased rendering using graphics cards. This allowed for a breakthrough since rendering typically required powerful computer processors and a big budget as a consequence. Using the Geforce GT/GTX graphic cards series by Nvidia (CUDA) rendering times have been greatly reduced. Several features were added by the current developer OTOY and continues to be improved. This means that powerful rendering can be done using one or multiple graphic cards at a fraction of the cost. MiLANT employs this render because of its flexibility, cost and ever improving array of plugins. More information can be found on their website.
