The rendering capabilities of Clarisse are
highly advanced. For instance, it facilitates the integration of rendered images and sequences
from other 3D rendering software by deep image output. To break it down, Clarisse outputs
depth information for every pixel. You can learn Clarisse for free with the Personal
Learning Edition. The renders made with the PLE are limited to 2560×1440 resolution and
may not be used for commercial purposes. Clarisse is the best 3D rendering software
for commercial studios that try to streamline their production pipeline. As of 2011 Blender has a new-fangled, cutting-edge
renderer called Cycles. It’s a realistic rendering, with full-fledged global illumination
and physically accurate calculations. It’s proved to be wildly popular and has quickly
become Blender’s premier render engine. Cycles has garnered notable respect from the
computer graphics industry. In fact, other 3D software developers have even ported it
to other applications, like Cinema 4D and Rhino. Realism, realism, realism: Without question,
Cycles is the best choice for realistic rendering. And since it’s built on physically-based
principles, it’s very easy to use from an artistic standpoint. To even attempt realism
with non physically-based scanline renders GPU-acceleration: Even though Cycles’ development
results in faster and faster rendering speeds over time, it’s biggest negative is still
that general render times are long. Because hey, emulating reality’s complex system
of light is kinda hard! However, to combat this, Cycles’ offers GPU acceleration that
can drastically reduce render times. LuxRender
LuxRender is an unbiased/biased 3D rendering software that is available under an OpenSource
license. On a wide range of features, LuxRender can compete with commercial rendering solutions:
The materials used are physically based, thus enabling photorealistic results.
Even complex phenomena like subsurface scattering and volumetrics are supported by LuxRender.
To help minimize the overall render time, users can choose to render in biased mode.
To the same end, instanced objects may be used in this 3D rendering software.
Because of LuxRender’s impressive range of features, it is an excellent 3D rendering
software for special effects and architectural visualization. NOX A new render called NOX was announced the
company behind it is Evermotion, a well-known portal dedicated to architectural visualization
based mostly in 3ds Max and V-Ray. Their renderer NOX is an unbiased render engine that can
create realistic images based on the metropolis Light Transport algorithm. According to the
description of NOX, this is a CPU only renderer, which could make it take quite some time to
render images. The renderer is free, and anyone can download
and use it. And along a plugin to export scenes from 3ds Max, NOX has an exporter for Blender
2.5. Unfortunately NOX is a windows only application.
To be able to download NOX you must be a registered user at Evermotion. Yafaray
YafaRay is a free open-source ray-tracing render engine.
Ray-tracing is a rendering technique for generating realistic images by tracing
the path of light through a 3D scene. A render engine consists of a “faceless”
computer program that interacts with a host 3D application to provide very
specific ray-tracing capabilities “on demand”. Blender 3D is the host application of YafaRay. Eevee Eevee is by far one of the most exciting render.
Not only it will give you a brand new real-time render, but also a way to create animations
for architecture quickly. Eevee already reaches a stable release. Few artists are already trying to put Eevee
to work, and i might have found of the first architectural visualization projects using
Eevee. You have see images from that project. That
is more than enough to give you a glimpse of what to expect with the use of good textures,
lights, and a good GPU. Why is that a big deal? Remember that it is
a real-time render engine. Meaning instant render no time needed to “cook” the image
or to get rid of noise. Using a technology like that to generate images for architecture
will definitively change the way we work with Blender.
Oh yes. As all previos renders eevee is totaly free too!
