New Free Render Engine - D5 Render | Realtime Raytracing
What is D5?
D5 Render is a real-time renderer based on real-time ray tracing technology. In fact, it combines the benefits of both ray tracing and rasterization to get real-time interactivity and photo-realistic images simultaneously.
Is It Free?
Beta is free. It is planned to release a community version for free. It will be lightweight and serve well for individual usage and educational purpose. Commercial version for pro users and enterprises will also be made available after the official launch.
D5 render Hardware and System requirements
D5 Render’s primary rendering pipeline is built based on DX12 + DXR. It needs Win10 v1809 and higher, with NVIDIA graphics card of GTX 1060 6GB and higher.
Creators developing the secondary rendering pipeline in parallel, which does not require DXR, and it will greatly improve the compatibility of OS and lower hardware requirements. It’s coming very soon.
However, we strongly recommend upgrading to NVIDIA RTX series since this new architecture would secure at least 10x speed boost with our implementation. It is a game changer for real-time design interactivity and efficient production of high-quality video animation.
D5 supporting formats
Sketchup, FBX, 3ds Max(through D5 convertor plugin) are supported now. Rhino, Revit, C4D, and more 3D formats will be supported on the roadmap.
This is an overview video of D5 Render. D5 Render based on GPU rendering. Hardware specs are mainly on graphics cards since D5 is a GPU based renderer, Especially optimized on RTX. Least requirements, for now, is GTX 1060 6GB, and the recommended GPU is from RTX 2060.
