Quote from Joshua Elliott :When did Arnold start getting relevant again?
Mandelbulb is an Arnold procedural object, it is a .dll procedural loaded and rendered at render time, particles never exist inside Layout itself, you can only see a cube with the bounding box of the procedural.Arnold is a incredible brute force raytracer, designed for VFX and animation industry. It is very easy to setup, there is no complex parameters to adjust, only sampling level, and render always is clear without artifacts and of course doesn't need any kind of precomputation. It is fantastic -Juanjo

Quote from chrono1081 :I can't even find information on Arnold. I hear about it but when you go to the site you can't even get in. I was just curious how much it costs.
Quote from Marinello2003 :I notice that the videos are made with LW in discovery mode - as in he doesn't own a LW license? Seems a little strange.Also, since when can LW handle that many particles? I stopped using LW around 9.3 version and I remember how horrible LW's dynamic engine was. It would take forever to calculate even the most simple dynamic scenes (like a bouncing ball with soft deformations). Also, the intense depth of field he added to the render in Nuke ruins the test in my opinion as it hides a lot of the mistakes that the renderer is making. Show us the raw render and let's see how well arnold holds up. Don't cloak it in a ton of blur.

Quote from Marinello2003 :Im curious why you would waste your time making a LW plugin for a renderer that very few people can actually use? Why not take your incredible talents and put them to better use by making tools that people will/can actually take advantage of? Why not develop some cool plugins for Modo that everyone can use?
Quote from Fezz :There are lots of us using Arnold currently :)
Quote from Phungus :So you'll arrange for me to have a license then? :-p

Quote from Javis Jones :messiah:Studio has a subset of the Arnold render. If'n you're interested enough.
Quote from Fezz :Nah, but it's pretty easy to get in the beta. More and more studios are getting seats of it, so it's not hard to get a chance to play with it.
Quote from Megalodon :AFAIK, you need to buy at least five seats in order to get into the beta.Has this changed recently?
