Step 3: Installing the OctaneRender for Unity Integration
You can install the OctaneRender for Unity integration by downloading one of the scenes OTOY provides in the Unity Asset Store. The Installer Scene is built to be lightweight and friendly so is recommended for getting started (figure 1).
For OctaneRender Prime, all you need to do is download and the Installer Scene and open it in the Unity editor.
To upgrade to OctaneRender Studio or OctaneRender Creator, please visit OTOY’s Unity Page. The Installation steps will be the same. However, once you open Octane into Unity’s editor, you will be directed via an email to complete your user account and select plugins, or access to OctaneRender Cloud.
