Octane Render: Fully GPU Unbiased render engine

It was made public yesterday the existence of a new renderer called Octane Render. This is new software that works with Unbiased render algorithms in a different way than we are used to interact. If you have already used LuxRender or Indigo Render, both using unbiased render methods, you know how realistic the rendered images […]

New tutorials for Indigo Render and Blender 3D

It’s been a while since the last time I use Indigo Render for a big project involving architectural visualization in Blender 3D. But, as far I saw from the first impressions I got based on the free version of the renderer, it’s still a great solution for generating realistic images using Unbiased render methods. Besides […]

How to setup a render farm in Blender 3D and Indigo Renderer

The look and feel of an image is very important for any kind of rendering related to architectural visualization. The challenge to produce a photo real image is sometimes difficult to overcome, and may let some artists disappointed with their first results. I see that all the time with my students, since they want all […]

The new Layer Blending feature of Indigo brings Multilight to Blender?

What is this feature called Multilight? This is an incredible feature of Maxwell Render, which allows an artist to change the color and intensity of a light source, while the render process isn`t finished. That’s right; we can actually make adjustments on-the-fly, and even create a cool animation of the light changes. Well, all those […]

Interior design with Blender 3D and Indigo Renderer

I`m working at a very simple project now, you may remember it from my previous post, which is a living room model rendered with Indigo, and modeled with Blender 3D. This last weekend I got some time to update the model and render it again, with a few more details. Most of the details are […]

Blender 3D and External Renderers

If you are used to Blender, then you must know about the use of external raytracers with Blender 3D. If not, then you are probably asking yourself, can I use V-Ray or Mental Ray with Blender? I know a lot of people use 3ds Max and V-Ray to create architectural visualization, but you can find […]
