I have just posted my first online kinda tutorial / hint / walk threw video. You can find there renders of RF made simulation rendered in iRay, Arion and Maxwell (actually 2 Maxwell renders – but the other one is just some fun that looked cool and I went for it). You will also find there few Nuke compositing tips and a general tip on how to achieve lets say almost physical correct chromatic aberration.
Excuse me for the voice I’m no radio speaker, and the hour was late ;) I had some thoughts regarding how hard is to record a tutorial… well my imagination wasn’t even half way of how hard it really is. TBH I have recorded over 40 mins of my „not very radio speaking” voice full of „god damns”, „ffs” and other foul language. Thankfully AVID came out handy (as always :).
Basically I tried to walk your through my 3 favorite renderers (since VRay and Mental are pretty covered I thought those 3 might be fun). 2 of them utilize GPU power one doesn’t. Since GPU rendereing is becoming more and more visible on the market those two may come to your attention as worth playing with. What i forgot to mention in the video was that iRay was in version 1.2 and Arion in 2.0.2 – it’s important since iRay seems to ‚slow down’ with higher versions… If it comes to Arion it’s worth to mention that version 2.4 is just around the corner and some cool new features (to mention one: g-buffer!!!) will be very soon available (with very fair price).
If you have any questions about above video please do not hesitate to ask, post, e-mail.
