3Delight 2.0 for 3ds Max available for download
DNA Research announced immediate availability of 3Delight for 3ds Max 2.0, their production-grade rendering engine for Autodesk 3ds Max 2014 and 2015. It is available immediately. 3Delight for 3ds Max is built on top of the renowned 3Delight rendering core used in many film projects such as the Robocop, TMNT, Elysium, The Nut Job, Happy Feet 2, District 9 and for the rendering of the main character Chappie in the movie of the same name. 3Delight's unique rendering technology includes production-grade path-tracing and REYES algorithms, high quality rendering of smooth subdivision surfaces, fine displacements, hair, particles, motion-blur, depth of field and other hard to render effects. The renderer also features per-light AOVs output (including separation of environment and incandescence) as well as real-time light mixing; physically plausible materials including 3Delight Glass and 3Delight Skin materials; support for V-Ray shaders; non-blocking rendering; and more! As with all DNA Research rendering plug-ins and tools, the first license of 3Delight for 3ds Max is offered for free (limited to 8 cores). It is available immediately for download, here. [source]
