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 […]

A new version of the open source Unbiased render engine called LuxRender was release, and after a long sequence or release candidates, most of the bugs were corrected and we have a new stable release. Among several small tweaks and improvements, this release is very similar to what we already saw in the previous RC […]

Free grass patch for external visualization with LuxRender and Blender 3D

One of the elements in external visualization projects that easily become a problem is vegetation. For architectural visualization artists, it`s always a good idea to study different ways to create grass for large surfaces. Today we can use several types of solutions to create grass, ranging from the use of textures representing only the grass […]

Indigo Renderer 2.2 for architectural rendering in Blender 3D

It`s been almost a week so far that I`m using Indigo Renderer to evaluate an important upgrade made to the renderer (version 2.2). This version of Indigo that I`m using to render a few images from architectural projects is the full feature version of Indigo, without the restriction in the resolution and a watermark on […]

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 […]
