Tried it. Amazed. Can't stop playing with the new Redshift! Volume rendering works like a charm with blazing speeds even with brute force GI enabled with about 500 samples! Crazy!
Tell me those are not some pretty clouds:
And this is not some heavy but oh so beautiful cloud of thick smoke:
Each of these renders took about 10 seconds on my nVidia Geforce GTX 970. Mind you this is not a powerful GPU anymore! According to preliminary tests GTX 1080 is twice as fast! Put four of those babies inside one big tower, grab a copy of Redshift and you've got your very own render farm that can render anything and fast! At least that's what I will do when the time comes to render the movie out.
Well, it's official. Redshift renderer is the best GPU rendering engine on the market! Well done guys!
And let me also thank Redshift team for supporting Softimage folk. You guys deserve a medal for this.
