Hello friends. I wanted to share these two comparisons with you. Two days ago, I lowered Vray 3.6. Render from the project I drew before. My experience. The vray rendering engine gives information in light settings without getting you rendered. you can reach faster renderings in indoors. suppression of the supodium pc vray 3.6 did not occur any tightening. I think vray is a little faster. Let's hope v2.6 is better.

Thanks for the info.

I don't think we ever intended to be better than Vray, just easier and less expensive.

But if you combine SU Podium with ProWalker GPU and Podium Browser, you get a fast visualization tool that is based on Iray from Nvidia.

http://podiumwalker.com/pw-iray.php
There is a trial you can try out.
The one draw back is ProWalker does not support the Mac.

ProWalker GPU can produce high quality images and supports most of the SU Podium features.

The only speed advantage to V2.6 is the Podium Export or processing scenes.  That's the part that exports the materials and surfaces to the rendering engine.  Podium Export 5 to 10 times faster than it is in V2.5 because it's now supporting multiple threads.

In any case, your renderings are fantastic, Vray or SU Podium.  Can we feature the Podium ones on the Podium Facebook page?

Hello there yes you can. The only shortcoming I think the water podium very well is the lack of front views

Vray costs maybe 4 times more than Podium. It’s a fantastic application but it’s a lot more complicated and takes a lot longer to learn.

Podium also gives you the Browser, an image editor and an integrated Panorama hosting facility.

Podium v2.6 is not faster than v2.5. It has some very cool new features, but there is no speed increase.

there are some problems in my computer that I can not solve. Supodium and vray both have a simple interface. Anyone using Supodium can use vray. Of course, you can use supodium vray. All I want from Supodium is to make the scene setting without pressing the render button. 😉

No, Vray does not have a simple interface - there are so many more things to configure!

You will need to explain what you mean by ‘make the scene setting without pressing the render button’.

I don’t understand...

sorry english is not so good. I'm talking about preview preview. I can see the light and other settings without rendering. That's what I meant

Let me correct something about V2.6.
V2.6 Podium Export is 5 to 10 times faster that V2.5
This will make a difference when rendering large models.
The rendering/ raytracing has not changed though.

Oops yes - export is definitely faster, it's the actual render process I was referring to.

I still don't understand this though I can see the light and other settings without rendering

This is not possible. All Vray does is render and SketchUp can't display lights. It must be some kind of preview render mode.

You are going to need to upload a screenshot (possibly more than one) to explain.

Yeah Vray uses CUDA for the interactive preview I think.  I remember they showed it at GTC and it looked great.

If you want that interactivity with real-time lighting feedback I think you would like ProWaker, ottoman... I sometimes use ProWalker as a preview window and then do the final render in Podium.  Since they use the same materials and lighting interface, that would be one way to get a live preview without changing anything about the way you work. 

If you have Windows and an NVIDIA card, I'd definitely recommend testing the trial.

I'm gonna try this. Logically, yes, it's a great idea. prowalker and supodium. My most distress is exposure. I'm the best supodium v2.6. We can use v2.5 as license.

Actually, ProWalker is a great suggestion if you want an interactive preview.

There are all sorts of things we can do for preview renders, but Podium is not Vray, and expecting it to work in the same way with the same features is not really realistic.

Just saw the renders and I noticed that there is alot of detailed work in the 3D model. Great job! So, no matter what render engine you choose, if you have a good quality 3D model, you can always get a decent render out of it (in my opinion).

Concerning Prowalker, once and awhile users post exterior images rendered with it and I'm always impressed at how these look realistic and natural. So definitely something to try, if you can.
