Octane vs Redshift? I have a gtx 1080 and using mantra and arnold is slowly pissing me off even with my 8 core Ryzen.
>>
Actually now i realized V-Ray has a GPU option too..so maybe that? how good is V-ray for simulations?

Redshift>Octane>Vray GPU

Wait for Arnold GPU

is there a free/very cheap GPU renderer available for students or whatever
basically any way i can do GPU rendering without pirating a software

Octane dropped the student licenses and Redshift only makes deals with schools themselves. Is furryball RT good enough?
>>
>>583995

blender
>>
>>583995
Cycles is a GPU one i think
>>
>>583995
like others said cycles, you can use yafaray,luxrender,renderman and mitsuba.

ill say that out of all of these renderman and cycles are probably the best ones, but each of those have its issue and won't be good like arnold or corona
>>
>>584037
Renderman in Maya or Houdini is a s good as Arnold and Corona but the implementation of Renderman in Blender is still WIP and unstable.
Renderman is only CPU, the next version dropping soon will have a CPU+GPU render mode.

>>583995
Cycles and Lux are GPU and open source.
There is also Radeon's Pro Render, which is also free to use.
>>
>>584190
thanks, I'll try Lux out. I presume Radeon only works with AMD graphic cards?
>>
>>584240
>AMD is making ProRender free, open source and available for all graphics hardware

From wiki

>>584037
>Mitsuba

Mitsuba is an experimental renderer and is not supposed to really be used in any kind of production work.
>>
>>584240
If you try out cycles, dont use anything pre 2.79 blender. Theres a new denoising feature that was mmuch needed until now and will save you 10X time while rendering in most situations.
