With virtual reality (VR) technology fast improving and becoming more popular and affordable, the demand for fully immersive 3D experiences grows greater every year. VR headsets like the Oculus and PlayStation VR are being used not just for entertainment, but for 3D model creation as well. Blender is no exception. Images like HDRI photography are

Recent technological advances have brought us exciting new developments in 3D rendering as application and quality have increased dramatically. Immersive, digital experiences created with real-time 3D rendering software are now nearly indistinguishable from the real thing. And with incremental improvements in modern technology, it is much easier to render 3D images on affordable, personal workstations

As we have mentioned previously, our rendering service has recently added support for Blender 3.0. (with      3.1 compatibility in the worksvv). The 3.0 release provides access to new features as well as a powerful rendering engine overhaul with the Cycles X update. With the accelerated internal speed of the new Cycles engine, we thought it
