Other free applications discussion thread

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.

For hobbyist my favorite are the free Simlab Composer Lite (max 1920 * 1080) (and the incredible TwinMotion seen few posts above)
Not headaches … so simple! Funny to use! Real time progressive render…
…and big advantage can mix quasi any 3D files in the same time!
(update to the last version so this video has some delay…(V 7 …V 9)

The skilled coder who created the fabulous MagicaVoxel editor has started working on a new tool featuring Signed Distance Fields. It looks very promising.

Wait for the second half of the video to see the live editing of the model.
