…yes, quite interesting!
Been playing around with it for a couple of days. Actually quite impressed with Artlantis 4.1. I'm really enjoying the new ISO/Shutter Speed adjustments, seem to produce a higher quality final render with much less manipulation.
LOVE the new HDRI background addition!
The new Maxwell Render (MR) Engine is amazing. I've attached an image that is into it's 25th hour, and counting, of rendering time (Sampling Level: and it's looking tons better that what I was acheiving in 4.1, which I was quite pleased with. The MR addition takes things to a much higher, but slower, level.
BTW: I can't get the HDRI background to look the same when I render in 4.1 and MR—does anyone know why this is so? Also, the "Background" slider doesn't seem to do anything—does anyone know/understand it's functionality?
