RAMWolff said:Hmmm, read all the way through this one. Been sort of interested but with DAZ Studio's render gains in the past couple of releases and it's ability to access all cores during the render then comparing that to using Octane, which are you saying for the free version, cuts you down to just using 2 cores to render??
The standalone 3Delight Free version available for download restricts the computer running it to 2 cores and searches for other versions of 3Delight running on the network. If it finds another, it will shut down.
The version that ships with D|S is not core locked, but does have the network abilities removed.
EDIT: The full 3Delight runs on D|S and Maya and Softimage. The cost for an additional dual core license is $400, with an unlimited core license selling for $1250.00. The yearly support cost starts at $190/yr.
EDIT2: The cost to upgrade from the Free Dual-Core to a Quad-core license is $250.
In all cases except for the Free, a license server must be running somewhere on the network and reachable by 3Delight.
