Reducción de ruido en Cycles (Denoiser)

Esta vez vamos a hablar de otra de las grandes y muy bienvenidas adiciones a Cycles en Blender 2.79, el Denoiser! Denoise o Noise reduction es el proceso de reducción/eliminación de ruido, que permite lograr imágenes completamente limpias en una fracción del tiempo que toma regularmente un render en Cycles. En términos simples, el denoiser analiza y filtra la imagen un tile a la vez, lo compara con los tiles terminados alrededor y hace un promedio de los pixeles de la zona quitando la información que se determina como ruido, tratando de mantener tanto detalle como sea posible.

Power Rangers – Cardiatron

This fanart/redesign was made for the tribute of the Power Rangers enemies in season 1, started by Edgar Gomez (https://www.artstation.com/artist/edgargomez). I spent about 15 hours total in the making, from modeling to post. Done in Blender, rendered in Cycles, post in Photoshop.

Crappy quality and lots of noise because I didn’t wanted to spend a whole day rendering this… For anyone wanting to create procedural animation and/or motion graphics in Blender, I heavily recommend this addon, doing animation with nodes is really cool 🙂 Links: Animation Nodes thread on Blenderartists.org Examples and tutorials Download Tutorials by Jimmy Gunawan

Blender cycles… More tests

This is yet another Blender Cycles test, I took a model already rendered and composited with Blender Internal and tried to do the same with Cycles, and it was much more easier. 😀 So here’s the first done in Blender Internal without compositing:   And this is the one rendered in Cycles (2000 passes), also without any compositing:
