Filament is the newest render engine for Daz Studio. This update includes a powerful new viewport and renders engine that makes quality renders fast, no matter the power of the system. Additional support was also included within the update for Iray 2020.1.1 and the NVIDIA 3000 series cards, resulting in an advanced Animation Timeline that’s more powerful than ever before.
In this article, iRender is going to look into what features are included with Filament.
The Filament Viewport shows your scene in real-time or near-real time, so you can work smarter and better. See the adjustments to your scene or character populate in the Viewport almost instantly, and enjoy the benefits of higher realism and a cleaner workflow.
In comparison to other render engines, Filament gives you a higher quality render in a fraction of the time! The Filament update offers the ability to work with older systems that don’t have the latest drivers. Now hobbyists and novice 3D Artists can create without spending a ton on expensive software and equipment.
Physically Based Rendering (PBR) calculates a complex series of interactions between the materials on your 3D assets and the light sources that strike them. Using Reflection and Diffusion, Translucency and Transparency, and complex calculations of Light Scattering and Atmospheric visual properties, PBR gives you astoundingly realistic renders in a fraction of the time of other render engines.
Filament achieves realistic lighting by separating materials and light sources and tracking interactions between them. The end result is a render that looks astounding and highly realistic, especially with off-focus fill lighting and backlighting that makes your characters and scenes look amazing.
According to artist KindredArts:
“Filament has a huge market appeal — it’s open-source and works amazingly for everybody, no matter how old the system they’re working on is. With Filament, any artist can make mad art without crazy rigs or waiting for 10-hour renders. This is a hit, especially because of the simplicity and low bar of entry. I’m just super stoked for it!”
Conclusion that Filament has the fastest viewport rendering in several render engines.
Here’s a video tutorial to receive a quick overview on using Filament. They will show you how to change your viewport, adjust tone mapping, work with your environment, textures, shadows, skin, and render with the viewport.
iRender has servers including multiples GPUs: RTX 3080 and RTX 3090. They are the most powerful graphics card this time. Stronger configuration brings faster speed in the rendering process.
