|Version:||Maya R2 SP4c|
finalRender Stage-2 for Maya offers a truly distributed network rendering concept which will allow you to use multiple PC's in a network to render one image. Distributed Network rendering offers many unique features and functions to enhance rendering speed, utilizing massive parallel rendering technology. finalRender Stage-2 offers a powerful system to separate specific render data into separate layers (images) and best of all, multiple render elements are created in one single render pass, only!
finalRender Stage-2 utilizes Micro Triangle Displacement (MTD) an advanced rendering method that gives the user the ability to create more surface detail for their models by generating and displacing extra triangles. The extra triangles are created only at render time which means that even 100 million Micro-Triangles will not hamper the performance of your system's memory.
finalRender's Micro Triangle Displacement helps you create even more realistic surfaces than before. As you would expect, MTD is also supported by Global Illumination and other raytracing effects.
In addition to Maya's built in Shader Nodes, finalRender comes with a load of additional advanced Shaders and features.
