Stormy Garden

No, notwithstanding the headline, this won’t be a post about US politics. Rather, this is just a quick update on test-driving the latest version of FStorm. I first loaded up my garden scene to test FStorm’s latest VRAM-management tricks and to try out GeoPatterns, a new tool that allows you to scatter tiling geometry on … Continued

Psycho to go

Et voilà, in time to celebrate the release of V-Ray Next, Psycho is now up for sale here. It is my first full-scale scene to have been made from scratch with V-Ray GPU in mind. Use it and abuse it if you feel so inclined, but remember it was rendered on a 1080ti with 11GB … Continued

This year, the sales will kick off on … Continued
