#Arnold Render Engine

Arnold is a fast CPU based raytracing renderer that was developed for the VFX studio Sony Pictures Imageworks. It is capable of real-time rendering, meaning that when you make changes during the rendering, they are immediately included in ongoing calculations. This, in turn, speeds up the process of developing the desired look. With this 3D rendering software, you can create about any pass imaginable, giving you a huge amount of control over the final look in the compositing stage. Being one of the preferred 3D rendering software solutions in the effects industry, Arnold supports volumetrics. In addition, its material editor is node-based, making the process intuitive. Many presets are available out of the box, and the active user community writes additional nodes. Arnold has supported plug-ins available for Maya, Houdini, Cinema 4D, 3ds Max, and Katana. Its wide range of features makes Arnold one of the best 3D rendering software for special effects.
