How did you guys decide what 3D rendering software to use? I'm currently on Keyshot because it's what we had license for at the design school I attended. I'm interested in rendering interior scenes and closeup product hero shots. I find Keyshot lighting and shadows not appearing properly in final renders (yes I've done troubleshooting and tutorials) and looking to try something new.

Is that list satire? CYCLES / EEVEE combo
>>655465For photorealism, it really doesn't matter at this point of time, as far as I know. Every renderer out there will have the tools to get you photorealism. It's mostly about which workflow suits you the best.
>>655473It's a partial list
Literally doesn't matter. As long as you can bake multiple maps (occlusion, specular, subsurface, caustics) and then composite in nuke.
Not every renderer is going to be ideal for every type of image. For your work Try Vray.
>>655465>I'm interested in rendering interior scenes and closeup product hero shots.I haven't used it but Corona had a pretty good rep for architecture/product visualization. Look at their website gallery, the quality is great and it's my understanding that the performance on indoor scenes is good.

>>655509Yeah Corona's great, currently using that
