Cycles denoiser for Viewport render (2.83)
A project that has Blender Cycles as their main render engine will most likely use a feature called Denoiser to reduce the number of samples required to get a clean image. The tool is an incredible feature for Cycles and has a limitation today of only working at the render output window.
If you trigger a render at the Viewport, you won’t see results with the Denoiser. A recent commit to Blender might change that in the future for those of you rendering with an NVIDIA RTX card. To use such feature you need an RTX card and also OptiX enabled.
The feature uses AI to greatly reduces noise in renders, which will be available in a future release of Blender! It will probably be part of version 2.83.
For artists using Blender Cycles to create architectural visualization, it might represent a huge boost in productivity, because you will need less time to get a clean render. The downside is that it will require from you an RTX graphics card to enjoy the feature.
Using Blender for architecture
Do you want to use Blender for architecture or render your projects using Cycles or Eevee? We have three books available that could help you!
They cover the use of Blender for producing architectural content and also all information you need to render projects in real-time:
- Blender 2.9 for architecture: Modeling and rendering with Eevee and Cycles
- Blender 2.8 parametric modeling: Drivers, Custom Properties, and Shape Keys for 3D modeling
- Blender 3.0: The beginner's guide
- Blender 2.8 for technical drawing
- Blender Eevee: The guide to real-time rendering with Blender 2.8
You can get them in both digital and paperback formats. By ordering those books, you will not only improve your skills with Blender for architecture but also support Blender 3D Architect.
