3rd party render engines 2019

Recommended Posts

First of all, I want some constructive discussion and not a war :)


At the moment I'm using Vray 3.6, but with the transfer of Vray for C4D to Chaosgroup, I think about alternatives.

I render characters (skin, hair) and mainly stills. So far I followed @Rectro tips & tricks and used the alSurface Shader in Vray for skin, which delivers quite good results out of the box.

So, criteria for me are

- Skin & Hair

- Node based material

- Integration in C4D

- Maturity & future-proof

- Licensing model (perpetual versus rental)


I love to her about your longtime experience and your pros and cons about the render engines you use.

I plan to get a new gear in 2019 and probably change the render engine latest with R21.


Thanks in advance and a Happy New Year to all of you and your families.
