Hi Justin.

I tried hard. No luck with this presto thing though.

Here is Presto AO render made in 14.20:

And this is Adaptive BSD made in 20.04:

Where we see more drama? Worth waiting extra 26% time? To me — sure thing yes!

Best,

Anton.

I played some with Fresnel Ramp effect to create various materials from the same white color. Beautiful feature!

Cool stuff Anton!

 

I think the Presto AO may be the closest to RenderZone at 'faking' the light solutions.  It's also going to be slower or faster depending on the GPU you have in your computer that uses CUDA.  Did you have it set in CPU+GPU mode?

 

I wonder what settings it will take to get it closer looking to the BSD solution?  Which I agree is much more dramatic. 

 

Thanks!  Still can't wait to give Thea a drive myself!

 

Cheers!

Yep. I have GeForce GTX 770 with 1536 CUDA cores. And yet it is not significantly faster than Adaptive BSD.

Nice.  The GTX 770 is a good card.  

 

Comparing the Octane Render Benchmark tests, you could cut your GTX 770 rendering times by more than half using a single GTX 980ti. - https://render.otoy....er=&singleGPU=1

 

Or you could grab (2) GTX 970's and cut your rendering times by 3 times as much!  - https://render.otoy....emID=2x GTX 970

 

Just some food for thought.  Upgrading GPUs is so cheap and easy.  While Octane is not Thea, the results should still be comparable as a GPU accelerated renderer, one would think.

 

I can't wait to finally get my hands on Thea for FormZ.

 Yes I believe it is going to make sense to add second card as soon as I`ll get final TfFZ. Fortunately my system allows that. At least movies would be done in real time.  

 I myself is waiting for a new build where disappearing material properties bug will be fixed. So I won`t have to reset all the materials as soon as I closed and reopen my file. Little annoying huh?

Anton.

Any more updates on how this is going? Any more teasers?

 

Looking forward to trying this and Vray plugins.

Hello bluemonkey.

hope it is going well. We had a meeting recently and hope there will be another beta l release with some our suggestions implemented. And hope it is going to be prefinal. For now there is  a huge difference in what we saw in a beginning.

 Actually you may see another teaser in my next post here at Tutorials by Users.

Anton.

Thanks for the update Anton, I'm looking forward to this.

 

I did had little play with Thea studio demo a few years ago but didn't immediately gel with it and didn't have much time to get to grips with it.

 

I'm hoping that the plug-in will obviously make working a lot more immediate and also there will be some quick start tutorials and 'wizards' to get us working with it quickly!
