Where were you when Maya included Arnold for free?
>>530493>autodesk made a new car where the engine you has to buy additionallydropped again.. back to blender.
>>530495What exactly are you talking about ? I'm downloading it just now so I have no idea what they changed.
>>530510Also, I've never used Arnold renderer before, anyone has experience with it ? Is it better than mental ray ?
>>530493Only if you use batch rendering. >>530495 Bullshit, Arnold is perfectly usable. >>530510Mental Ray is gone, Arnold is standard render. If you want to render on more than one node you have to buy additional licenses.>>530511Depends. Its way easier to set up, and it gives a perfect result given enough time/ renderpower. But its not perfect for architecture, especially indoors. It runs only on CPU so its slow but very stable even with billions of polys.
Really curious to see how this effects other renderers. I'm using Vray for the most part but I think this could be a good time to change.
>>530642Just learn Arnold, should be easy for you if you know Vray already. But keep using Vray and/or add Redshift in the mix and you're set for every render situation.Arnold is superplusgood, but slow.
>>530688Why would I keep Vray if I'm using Arnold? For archvis stuff?Redshift looks interesting too but I've yet to try it.
>>530690Because you want to have options, there is no "one fits all" solution except maybe this one.Having one slow but physical plausible renderer, one super fast, and one which could be anything in between.If you render in passes you could even mix them.
Can one of you colossal faggots explain to me what Arnold is for laymens terms!Also when people say render, arevtalking about when you press render and it shows you what your model looks like? Because it normally takes a few seconds.
>>531125read the sticky, newb
Mfw im still on 3ds max 2013. Time flies
>tfw my computer is too old and shitty to handle any 3D softwareI just wanted to practice goddamn it. I don't want to get a new one
>>530472How's Arnold for character renders? Or should I just stick with Vray.
>>531125>can you assholes spoon-feed me Slit your vein fag.
>>531311you can easily buy something used cheap off ebay.
Batch render in Arnold is the only way to render an image sequence isn't it?
>>531365Apparently, there is this new thing called 'Render Sequence', which looks like it can render image sequences (Duh) as well as AOVs.
>>530472In my bedroom jerking of to milf cuck porn amateur stuff in hotel rooms with that shitty lighting, why where were you?
>>531353I didnt ask for spoon-feeding you bellend, i just would like some understanding, i read the sticky and have actually started blender, so slit your main vein you fucking trans pink haired numale loving fisting feminist munching faget
