Octane Render - The Interactive Physically Based Render Engine

Octane Render - The Interactive Physically Based Render Engine
Octane Render is the world's first GPU based, un-biased, physically based renderer. What does that mean? It uses the video card in your computer to render photorealistic results fast...really fast. This allows the user to create stunning works in a fraction of the time of traditional CPU based renderers. more... octanerender™ is the world's fastest unbiased photorealistic renderer producing stunningly life-like images of the highest possible quality, making it the ultimate renderering solution for architectural visualization, product design and 3D animation rendering.

THE NEXT INCREDIBLE LONDON ? Vous trouverez toutes les explications sur ces magnifiques images issueS du projet de film Fanciful Megalomania imaginé par Jonathan Gales, sur le toujours très bon site dpr-barcelona, dont j'ai extrait les quelques lignes ci-dessous. " The film project Fanciful Megalomania is described by its author Jonathan Gales, as some “Fanciful drawings of construction sites“. Gales is a film maker and designer based in London. SITEX GRAPHICS : AIR AIR is an advanced 3D graphics renderer with a unique architecture and extensive features designed for the rapid production of high-quality images. AIR is a hybrid renderer, combining the advantages of scanline rendering - fast rendering of complex scenes, motion blur, and depth of field - with the flexibility of on-demand ray tracing for accurate reflections, soft shadows, global illumination, and caustics. AIR supports a broad range of geometric primitives, including polygon meshes, trimmed NURBs, subdivision meshes, curves, particles, and implicit surfaces.

9 Best Free 3D Rendering Software For Windows Here is a list of 9 best free 3D rendering software for Windows. 3D rendering is a process of converting 3D model or 3D object into 2D image. The converted 2D image looks similar to its 3D model. 3D rendering is mainly used for converting 3D designed model and 3D animation into 2D format. This process of 3D rendering can easily be done by using software. You can use all these best rendering software for 3D rendering of 3D wireframe models. You can use these software products to quickly render some of the popular 3D model files, such as: DAE, 3DS, OBJ, WRL, STL, MD2, etc.

 ArtVPS - Shaderlight for SketchUp 3D Rendering Technology Shaderlight for SketchUp Rendering Software Take your SketchUp models to the next level with Shaderlight Shaderlight is an interactive rendering software plug-in to SketchUp that lets you create high quality images, quickly and simply. RAMDOM CONTROL : ARION RENDER Key features: Interactive rendering and editing, CUDA empowered, displacement, photo-realistic materials, physically-based, unbiased... Arion raw raytracing speed is vs. quality ratio is unprecedented and can produce the cleanest and the most beautiful artworks. Thanks to its carefully engineered rendering core, it outputs an astonishing amount of work in the same time as traditional renderers. Beside a deep optimization of the core that affects raw speed, Arion 2's new sampling strategy leads to an even faster image convergence. This excellent performance applies to all the different samplers in Arion 2, including Metropolis Light Transport (MLT). LightMixer light layers are back.

VRayMtlConverter v2.5 A simple MAXScript to automate otherwise time-consuming tasks regarding converting some types of materials (currently: Standard, Raytrace, Brazil Advanced and fr-Advanced) to VRay Materials - and also fixes some parameters of materials of previous versions V-Ray (1.09.xx) in view of changes in new versions V-Ray (1.46.xx and 2.0 SP1). Additional Info: Now the script has installer.

Architecture 3D Illustrations Víctor Enrich recently shared with us his architecture 3D illustrations and visualizations. Over the years he has experimented with a variety of mediums resulting in these 3D creations. A full description of his work and further illustrations following the break. EPHERE: Project: Zookeeper Zookeeper is a big asset to the toolbox of any technical artist working with 3ds Max... " At last we can create, edit and manage all the components of a 3ds Max scene and their relationships in one unified, clean graph;... If you like node-based systems and use 3ds Max, this one is a must." Full Text - Martin Breidt ( "Having been a 'Maya guy' for many years prior to switching to Max, Zookeeper is exactly the tool I've been waiting for.

Thea Render The new integrated plugin for 3dsMax has just arrived and licensed users can grab the plugin as a free update! Bundle with Motiva Colimo and create infinite variations from a single render. Perform luminance and illuminance analysis and generate reports out-of-the-box. Thea Render offers a variety of high quality Model and Material Libraries. Lighting simulation is as accurate as never before with full spectral resolution and support for ior and scattering data. Walt Disney Animation Studios BRDF Explorer is an application that allows the development and analysis of bidirectional reflectance distribution functions (BRDFs). It can load and plot analytic BRDF functions (coded as functions in OpenGL's GLSL shader language), measured material data from the MERL database, and anisotropic measured material data from MIT CSAIL. Graphs and visualizations update in realtime as parameters are changed, making it a useful tool for evaluating and understanding different BRDFs (and other component functions). Motivation In the pursuit of visual realism in our films, we have spent a considerable amount of time exploring the strengths and weaknesses of different BRDFs. To understand the properties of different BRDFs, we found it helpful to be able to visualize and graph them in different ways to see how they responded to illumination in different configurations.
