Cinema 4D Gets Quicker with AMD’s Radeon Pro
The AMD Radeon ProRender is a very potent next-generation ray tracer that is founded on OpenCL. You see, MAXON has selected this one of a kind technology to charge its Cinema 4D use.
Radeon Pro WX 9100 GPU by AMD is considered to be the trendiest and hottest graphics cards throughout the years. That’s especially true when it taps into the power of the Pro-Render software technology of AMD.
Just recently, AMD has released a special supplement in a PDF document, which talks about their Radeon ProRender technology as well as Maxon’s Cinema 4D application. The file highlights the Vega architecture at the back of the Radeon Pro WX 9100 GPU card including its sister cards. It also highlights what the technology can offer to push Cinema 4D rendering on both PC and Mac computers.
How does it Work?
The Radeon ProRender is a powerful new ray tracer technology created by AMD. This is based on the OpenCL standard of the Khronos Group, a standard that Apple created and turned over to the open source community. In case you didn’t know yet, Radeon ProRender is built to work along with various GPUs. What’s more, it could even tap the power of CPUs for fall back.
If you wish to get started, here’s the setup you need:
You need to run the highly esteemed Cinema 4D R20 software of Maxon on both Windows andmacOS. Then your solution basically must use multiple GPU computers. If you are employing an Apple Mac computer such as MacBook Pro or iMac laptop, you wish to link an external GPU box such as the Sonnet eGFX series to get the best value for your money.
Including only one external GPI to 15 inches MacBook Pro will lower the render periods by at least 1/5 to 1/6 the render wait period. On the other hand, Radeon RenderPro will employ both the Radeon Pro WX 1900 in an external box and internal AMD GPU on the latest MacBook Pro. Including a second 9100 to your external box will lower the render period again by half.
The AMD ProRender technology employs the Radeon GPUs created into the existing generation of iMac computers, the iMac Pro workstation as well as the 15 inches MacBook Pro. Those Windows users could plop in a Radeon Pro SSG, Radeon Pro WX 71000 or WX 9100 graphics cards.
Glen Johnson, the content creator at MAXON, expressed that this initial iteration of Radeon ProRender in Cinema 4D shows how a renderer could be incorporated into a software application. The render engine runs natively along with the default materials, cameras, and lights of a Cinema 4D. Render settings for both offline and preview rendering lead in a quick workflow when setting up scenes for final rendering.
MAXON and AMD are continuing to enhance integration. They also plan to include more functionality to future Cinema 4D releases.
