AMD has unveiled Radeon ProRender for Blender: a new version of its free physically accurate, GPU-based renderer for the popular open-source 3D modelling and animation software.
The company hasn’t announced a release date for the new plugin, which is mentioned in a blog post
on the official release of the Maya version of the software.
An open-source, OpenCL-based unbiased path tracing rendererOriginally named FireRender
, Radeon ProRender is an unbiased path tracing renderer with a standard basicset of features
It’s GPU-accelerated, and being based on OpenCL, should be compatible with any manufacturer’s hardware.
Plugin versions are currently available for 3ds Max, Maya, with SolidWorks in beta. The technology is being incorporated natively into the upcoming Rhino 6, and “over several release cycles
” of Cinema 4D.
Can Radeon ProRender outperform Blender’s native Cycles engine?AMD’s blog post doesn’t go into detail about the Blender version of ProRender, beyond the fact that it will also be a plugin, will be integrated into Blender’s viewport, and will come with its own material library.
However, as an open-source renderer based around open standards, it seems a natural fit for Blender.
The real question is whether ProRender will offer the feature set and performance required to persuade users to switch from Cycles, Blender’s existing – and well-established – GPU-based unbiased path tracer.
Cycles also supports OpenCL, although as the online documentation
makes clear, it’s still something of a second-class citizen compared to Nvidia’s proprietary CUDA API.
