With R19 having prorender I'd like to mention I started a thread about the impressive new cards they have coming out.

 

AMD have not committed themselves to competing at the very high end of the GPU market until the next series of cards after Vega. Since the Titan and Ti level GPUs have a tiny market AMD are focussing on the Budget and Enthusiast markets where most of the buyers are. Early benchmarks show Vega's gaming performance is around that of the nVidia 1070 and OpenCL performance between the 1080 and 1080Ti.

 

OpenGL performance is really not much of an issue for C$D because the object handling is so poor no one ever hits GPU limitations in their scenes it's always the object handling bottleneck that grinds everything to a crawl so it'll be interesting to see what the Vega 3d rendering performance is like and with 16GB of RAM that's a healthy amount for 3D rendering. Having said that who in their right mind is going to buy these cards just for ProRender when the vast majority of GPU renderers are CUDA based? I'm not sure the combination of ProRender and Vega is a strong enough draw unless they're cheap and extremely power efficient.

To my recollection the Siggraph presentations have never included demos of the newly announced version's features so TBD was likely due to the content of the presentation not actually been confirmed at the time of publishing the schedule.

 

I have always found it absurd that MAXON announces the latest C4D version then all the presentations are based on the current version. I would've expected Siggraph be the stage to do in house demos of the latest version but it never has been.

 

 

The real issues with ProRender are the speed and they've already confirmed it'll be undercooked not that it is 'free'. The quality of the renderings are not in doubt as the MAXON artist's work look very nice indeed but how long were the renders? 

Actually, Casey Hupke, Derya Ozturk, Athanasios Pozantzis and Chad Ashley all had presentations that included new features of R18. All you need to do is to go to Cineversity to see them.

I could be wrong on the announcement of R19 because EJ Hassenfraz has tweeted 3 hours ago " Is everybody ready for #C4D R19?".

I stand corrected. You are indeed correct and they've been demoing the latest version during siggraph for years too so I don't know why I thought they didn't, bizarre. :confused:

Having never been through a version change before (I have come in on R18), can I ask whether you'd install R19 from the moment you get your download link, or wait until everyone else has found the bugs and then install (like a Windows OS upgrade)?

 

Or can you have both R18 and R19 installed on the same system?

 

Thanks

If you are using it professionally people tend to keep using the current release until they are convinced the new release is ready. I expect in most cases both will be installed

 

They are handled by the computer as separate programs so R19 will not wipe R18

 

People here are pretty good at predictions. Plenty of cool stuff in R19 but not what the loudest users have been asking for.

Well, that is why I shouldn't be listened to. LOL.

Well, this release for me is awsome.  I have a huge grin on my face, the weighting mirror is sorted, and now long awaited to C4D is Pose space morphs.  That alone is enough for me, this is going to make a big difference to me.  Iv not looked at anything else yet, but that has made my day.

 

Thank you MAXON, great job.
