Interesting concept! :+1:

De Lighter

free stand-alone tool designed to remove shadows from model textures. The tool is targeted on removing cast shadows and ambient occlusion from 3D models. It requires user input in a form of rough brush strokes marking lit and shadowed areas.

Very cool! :ok_hand:


Your vidéos in your wished styles! :heart_eyes:

Very impressive, although I do think this approach diminishes the emotions and overall feeling of the human touch in terms of paint daubs, style and other human properties.

Speaking of which: there’s a certain 3D tool that offers all kinds of fake-drawn, stylized rendering options for your 3D models. Can’t remember its name. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Maybe this one ? :wink:

My lips are sealed. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Also interesting — your fellow Frenchman Maxime has released QuadRemesher:

It’s not free though. :slightly_smiling_face:

Octane render free for the free Blender 2.8 :wink:

Cool news indeed. I read it a the Blender Artists forum. Cycles has also got an upgrade with NVIDIA OptiX:

…and this one! AMD Radeon ProRender!
Works even you have not an AMD card! :crazy_face:

Bien sur! Also a very competent renderer. Used it for a while, and I’m keeping track of its development.

Then there’s Luxcorerender and Appleseed, also very potent and free renderers:



So you can use the free Blender and choose between these free renderers (in alphabetical order):

  • Appleseed
  • Cycles
  • Eevee
  • Luxcorerender
  • Octane (free with certain conditions)
  • Prorender

Renderman also used to be usable in Blender, but not (yet) in 2.8.
