When you are uploading Scenes to ORC, nothing is more important to us then the security of your assets. Each file is encrypted during the uploading process and cannot be retrieved once on ORC. As a result ORC does not fully function as cloud storage and we encourage storing a backup of your work internally. In practice this means that Scenes can only be used to create Jobs or deleted.
Uploading a Scene
Before you upload your Scene, please make sure to include at least one Render Target in your project otherwise you will not be able to create a Job once it's on ORC. If you would like to find more information regarding Render Targets check out our documentation.
There are two ways to upload a scene, the first is to use the webpage. Navigate to the Scenes page by clicking on the Scenes tab in the top right then click on the orange cloud icon and select an OctaneRender Package File (files with .orbx extensions).
The second way to upload a scene is to use OctaneRender (v2.24 and above). Open your project then click on the cloud tab (in the top left of the program) and select "Upload scene snapshot".
Doing so begin the upload process. You will know your project has been successfully uploaded when you see this message in the bottom left corner of OctaneRender.
Once you have completed this process you will be able to find your Scene on the Scenes page. There you can create Jobs, delete Scenes, or sort Scenes by either date, name, or status. Of course this feature really shines when you upload Scenes in large numbers or with similar names.

Cinema4D Developer Note:
- The "Export as animated ORBX" command uses the resolution from Live Viewer, the range from the Scene settings, and the fps from the Scene fps. Be sure that these values are what you intend before rendering.
Additionally the exporter still has some missing features but we are discussing this. Right now the plan is to try an ApiExporter. Ex. material animations or volume objects."
