Yeah, it’s free. We haven’t upgraded our Keyshot license yet. I figured, better try it first. It has some nice features, but it’s really in it’s infancy still. Like, the fact that it gives you No warning if it fails on import. It just does nothing.
I haven’t tried this version, but there was a limitation on image size in Felix.
Well, it’s letting me render 10,000 x 10,000, so I guess they took that away. Ha, but you can’t zoom out in the render. So you have to pan a Lot to find what you want. It’s giving me about one frame of refinement every 2 minutes also. I haven’t assigned materials or a different environment. So, not Particularly fast. Actually, I’m giving up. It’s just too slow. It’s been at 4% for 10 minutes. I cancelled, change it to only 4k square, and got to 5% after 4 minutes. It’s still REALLY slow. It only seems to be using processor though, and I do have a laptop. It’s not Slow though, i7-6700HQ currently running 8 processes at 3.08GHz. It’s not going to win any awards, but It does fine in Keyshot.
Well, hopefully some of the rendering community gives some feedback. Otherwise this will just be a toy for people designing packaging and not much else. C4D is Somewhat built in to Adobe CC also, but lots of people don’t realize it. The only way to open it is to go through After Effects I think. It’s just “light” but I don’t think there are render size limitations. Might not have SSS or something, but I’m sure you can still render things ok.
Also, Rhino related. Make sure your objects aren’t backward. Without having applied any materials, the objects facing backward show up as black… I Highly recommend using an ugly colored material for showing backside faces.
