IRAY V 3 DELIGHT Which is better?

Heck, the answer is easy. IRAY However there are exceptions to the rule. Look at these two renders of the characte KIM SEOHYUN for Gen 8. The figure on the left is in IRay and the one on the right i 3 Delight.  Look at her face. The 3 Delight seems to capture a crispness that we see in IRay renders but for some reason it does not apply to this model. Her face looks bland and something missing.  

Any thoughts or comments?

    Change Iray's pixel filter to "Box" with a value of 0.5 or lower. Then we'll see which one is crispier.

    At the risk of getting flamed, where do I find the iRay pixel filter ?

    In the Render settings tab, under Filtering. Default is 1.50 I believe.

    1.5 is the default, yes, however the actual Iray documentation recommends a default of 0.5. I think that's often too sharp though, so I generally set it to 1.0.

  • Hmm ... now i kinda wanna do a comparison render, with the three settings ... 1.5, 1.0, and 0.5 ... just to see..

    It looks more like the fuzziness caused by noise, more samples and more time is always the goto answer in Iray! yes

  • Want to thank you guys for your feedback. 

    Here is the figure using setting of 1.0. I assume that the setting will not affect my other figures except make them sharper too. 

    Anyway, thanks again.

    ...basically it depnds on what effect you are after. Ifi t's photoreal, yes, Iray has the advantage (though with Wowie's AweShder in 3DL comes  very close).  For more stylised images, 3DL is better as it allows more variance, particualry with effects content in render. 

    Examples (all 3DL most without any postwrok save for using a filter or to add a signature).

    Which is better, vanilla or chocolate?

    All a matter of taste.

    And with rendering, intention, skill, and hardware. :)

    Chocolate, I prefer chocolate, and iray!

    But, 3Dlite is custom made for stylistic renders and is excellent for sculpted lighting and toons... so yeah, I like both chocolate and vanilla!
