    So I got 1 more week left of my iRay+ subscription. :o
    I hope the transition over to relicensing is fast, because I don't want to lose the speed I'm modeling at. This is my favourite ray tracing...

    I had more time to work on my snow shader. It really comes down to giving it real textures or else it kinda looks like boiled eggs.

    I also added a displacement shader, which still requires a lot...

    I support this idea. The less we have to fiddle with settings, the more we can just focus on creating the art we want! :D

    Quad 1080ti running in Activeshade is my dream setup. You beat me to it. ;)

    Now if only iRay+ had a denoiser like Blender or Renderman, real time photorealism could be achieved in mere seconds...

    Admittedly, I've only tested iRay on a low budget GPU, but was the architecture sampler ever that noticeable? I read its purpose was to make path tracing more accurate while using less passes, but it...

    At the time I picked up iRay+, it was because it was the cheapest ray tracer out there that I also believe is the most competitive in outputting realistic results.

    Nope. Everything I've rendered to date is on a $200 GPU (GTX 960). ;)

    I can't afford much better so I have to make do with what I have.

    However, there are...

    The purist in me likes using the Skin (SSS) material. Despite being the most complex shader, it still renders out foliage pretty quickly.

    Nvidia iRay still uses the original Mental Ray code whereas iRay+ is built from the ground up and thus not all legacy features are compatible.
