I’ve need to create beauty render pass and render product with contour sampling. its work pretty good, there some crashes from Solaria. the live render navigation is difficult to navigate,Continue reading “Arnold toon shader test”

refraction rendering Anrold vs Indigo

I’ve did little test to compare Arnold refraction rendering vs Indigo renderer. since Arnold used spectral calculations for refraction, it was interesting to see how its sticks up to full spectral renderer like Indigo. the render settings are fairly optimized for Arnold, Indigo gives not much room for optimizing. to be as fair as possibleContinue reading “refraction rendering Anrold vs Indigo”

marble rendertest

Inspired by great Marble renders and Shader hack by Lee Griggs. I’ve decided to recreate some tricks with different render engines, a little render Comparison. The basic idea, using a glass shader for outter shell and an inner sphere with textured volume to fake depth. this way, you will save a lots of work withContinue reading “marble rendertest”

(written by Boberfly) i using the free camera model from 3d Model Haven. so far the Test looks pretty promising, also discovered some bugs which reported. I can’t to try on more complex scenes.
