Things that make me happy: GPU rendering in Blender
show user profile  Nik Clark
This is on my big list of things that make me happy. The GPU renderer in Blender. Very quick startup, pretty darned fast rendering. All the light is from three planes with a self-illuminating material on them. The scene is admittedly quite minimal, but it's still pretty nippy on larger scenes too. I wish Max offered this much instant feedback. Mental ray tries, but fails as soon as you try to actuall use it, and the RT rendering in iray makes your PC unusable. I meant to move things around and adjust materials too, as that is also instant. This may not be new to those of you with other RT software, but for free software, I think this is pretty damned good.

Watch full screen in HD.

Why developers dun wan enable gpu renderer like game engines? A normal gpu can even render so fast right? I think if they create a gpu renderer,Nvidia and ATI cards business will be ruined. Though I dun understand it deeply.

I don't follow the logic. Must be tired..

Nik: From the looks of it, it seems even faster than MODO's preview. I'm that close to send all those software companies to hell and go open source all the way.

@ Darius,

Stop with the fucking "la's" and "le's" I fucking hate it. I hear it all fucking day long in Malaysia. It's fucking stupid.

And the zzzzz's are dumb as shit too. Why do Asians do that?

Note: I'm assuming now you're Malaysian, btw, even though your flag says US of A.

How do the tags go again? I hate scripting, even HTML.

Actually, I reckon I got them right now.

[edit] Nope, they disappear when I do them correctly. Annoying la. zzzzzzz.

You know, I've been thinking about making a video for Max users who want to give Blender a go, but find it completely alien. I'd call it, "What the the hell is all this? (an introductory guide to Blender for Max users)".

Sounds perfect for my current status with Blender..

Terribly boring signature.
