About Render Engines part 1

This is a quick overview of current render Engines for Houdini and General in terms of MotionGraphics and VFX usage.  There are different RenderEngines out there, each one is unique and uses different method to solve a problem. I am looking into Arnold, RenderMan, Vray, Octane and Redshift. For comparison reason I added Indigo RendererContinue reading “About Render Engines part 1”

Renderman Spline rendering

I’ve tested RenderMan with spline rendering. it’s much faster compared with baked Geometry. the spline primitives are very good in Renderman. I’ve stopped the test with mantra after 10 minutes, it is super slow even with optimized render settings. the Renderman images rendered for 3:20 on a 6 core Xeon 2.7ghz with pxr pathtracer. 4kContinue reading “Renderman Spline rendering”

light simulation

I’ve made a simple scene to test the physics of light. for proper light calculation, I used spectral render Indigo and Octane. Indigo has multiple Engines, standard Spectral Path tracer on CPU or GPU and Bidirectional path tracing with MTL sampling (metropolis Light Transport). Octane has only default Spectral Path tracer on GPU but includesContinue reading “light simulation”
