I recall seeing a demo for the NX10 preview release. The speaker was talking about having the capability in NX 10 Ray Traced Studio to utilize the processing power from multiple computers on your network in order to enable a faster real time ray traced rendering. Does anyone know if this has been enabled in NX10? If so how can the user take advantage of multiple processors on the network to enable the faster real time ray tracing?
Solved! Go to Solution.
as far as I remember the NX 10 presentation on the PLM Europe 2014 correctly, I have also recognized that it should be possible to utilize multiple render workstations as supporting machines for photorealistic image generation. I'm also interested to get more about this parallel render sourcing across multiple machines. But up to now I also did not find infomation and hints to get forward in this direction. No doubt, the Implementation of NVIDIA's Iray technology inside NX 10 via the Lightworks Design Ltd. Iray+ Interface is even impressive on a single workstation.I'm running a multi CPU machine and all CPU's and a portion of the single GPU NVIDIA K2000 device became occuppied by a RTS render task. Maybe the parallel capability requires special NVIDIA multi GPU Cuda enabled an equipped workstation?
I would appreciate if you will share your information in this topic if you will get more.
Thanks for your interest in NX Ray Traced Studio.
To clarify, NX 10 Ray Traced Studio is based on Lightworks LADS rendering engine which utilizes local CPUs with GPU acceleration, but doesn’t support network rendering.
The portion of the PLM Connection Europe 2014 presentation you’re referring to was a demonstration of NX Ray Traced Studio rendering based on Lightworks Iray+ rendering engine. Iray+ supports network rendering in general and in the demo was specifically using an off-site cluster of NVIDIA Visual Computing Appliances (VCAs). Each NVIDIA VCA holds 8 high-end GPUs. NX Iray+ Ray Traced Studio with network rendering support is slated for a future but as yet undefined version of NX.
Thank's for clarifying this topic. It seems, that I had understood the Iray+ interface implementation in the wrong direction.
We have the photo license, but the result, the interface and the speed of NX render tool is poor.
We have decided to buy https://www.keyshot.com/
How is Keyshot working for you compared to the New NX10 ray trace studio? We are looking at a keyshot.
There are lots of differences.
- Interface is clear and simple to understand in Keyshot
- Apply material, edit mateial and scene is simple
- Lots of materials
- Speed and quality in Keyshot is not paragonable to NX 10 tray studio
If you need to do photorendering, buy a Keyshot license.
