Dear RNDR community,

At SIGGRAPH 2018 OTOY and RNDR previewed its 2018 and 2019 roadmap for OctaneRender and the RNDR SDK. The general theme was a convergence of cinematic and real-time pipelines into one end-to-end workflow for photorealistic holographic media. Notably, we demonstrated preliminary results of hardware-accelerated real-time raytracing and previewed integrations with the leading game engines Unity and Unreal Engine

Deep dive into OctaneRender 4.0 Release with AI acceleration, OctaneRender 2018.1’s new procedural rendering pipleine with Octane Vectron and Spectron. Finally, we showcase OctaneRender 2019.1 which includes integration into Unreal Engine and the first phase of a RNDR SDK with cross-platform support for RTX Ray Tracing, CUDA, Vulkan, D3D, and Metal, bringing RNDR services to a dramatically expanded user base, now including iOS and the world's leading AAA game engine!

Dear RNDR Community,

Since Q3, scenes with different complexities have been rendered successfully on the network and securely sent back to artists.

Nodes from around the world have joined the network to provide GPU power. We've made a short description of the steps involved for the node-side user to download and run the RNDR token application. These same steps will soon be shared to Genesis and Beta list members individually, so this is a great chance for you to start to get familiar with the following procedure.

Check out “A Node Side Application Walkthrough” and learn how it fits in with technical development to date.

Dear RNDR community,

In July, after completing Phase II of our roadmap, we released a Beta Interest survey to help get a picture of GPU supply and demand for the launch of RNDR Network’s Beta phase.

The results were astonishing, showcasing the power of a decentralized GPU compute network to scale exponentially faster than centralized structures. We were able to accumulate over 1,100 responses, over 14,000 unique GPU’s with over 40% of them as premium cards, and a total OctaneBench power of over 1.5 million.

Read our latest blog post with full details on the survey results from users and miners focused on learning about community so that we can implement a user-centered design in advance of our launch.

Dear RNDR community,

We are half-way through Phase III of our roadmap, which will conclude with a completed Beta on Ropsten (Ethereum Testnet Environment) and the V1 launch of the RNDR Network on Ethereum’s Mainnet. This version will come with streamlined back-end processes and full automation of the rendering-streaming flow through smart contracts and blockchain technology.

In addition to the progress made during Phases I to III, our team gained valuable insights on the most challenging aspects of the project. With this input and the main milestones for the last part of the year in mind, our team has an updated roadmap with detailed technological and platform milestones outlined.

Hello RNDR community,

We are happy to announce that a 20% bonus has been released to our Genesis token holders.

The RNDR Network would like to thank our current Genesis token holders for completing the form we sent out a few weeks ago.

Hello RNDR community,

2018 was a phenomenal year for the RNDR Network. Our team more than doubled while we simultaneously developed a number of key industry partnerships. Most important, the RNDR Network is running on the Ethereum testnet consistent with our roadmap.

Dear RNDR Community,

Over the past few months the RNDR Network has been gradually improving and scaling thanks to the valuable feedback we have received from our current closed group of beta testers. Today we are happy to share some of the statistics as we approach our mainnet release.

Hello RNDR Community,

We are thrilled to release the RNDR Genesis Mainnet moving from the Ethereum testnet to mainnet for decentralized rendering.
