It has been 3 months since we got here this answer:
“I’ll definitely put footage and motion graphics high up on my priority list for a reevaluation.”
What about the price increase for motion graphics?
It’s about time…are there any news about that?
Have a great weekend everybody
September has been a slow month so far, both templates & motion graphics.
Hoping for better days!
Octane render is indeed amazing.
It’s not always about speed, but about results. I own the standalone version that works great with C4D (with an exporter script).
I know most of the standalone features and options, and even the default setup evokes amazing results (but ofcourse you better learn it well and customize it).
With GPU, you can do stacking (have 1,2,3..in one computer) which you can’t do with CPU.
I have a GTX570 in my desktop, and two GT750M cards in my laptop…and I’m pleased ! I might buy another GPU for my PC but for now it’s working great.
With Octane, rendering works differently, you see the final render builds in front of you, and the longer you wait, less noise appears in the render. So speed per frame is different, you can set it by defining “max samples” per frame. How much is “enough” is a parameter that depends on:
1- Your liking
3- Kernel settings
5- Complexity of the scene
and a few more…
For me it can go from 1-2min per frame up to 9-10min per frame if I render in 1080p+highest quality settings+complexed scene with water/lots of glass/etc – it’s worth it..I wouldn’t get these results in Cinema 4D.
I’m a patient person, so when I build something I like – I wouldn’t mind rendering a sequence for 20 hours, working from my laptop meanwhile.
