We're using Unity (Quarter Circle Games). I'm happy to give an interview and some of my lighting/PP techniques. You can view out game here:

This is a fan project, like the Lord Inquisitor was. GW has absolutely nothing to do with it!

Appleseed 2.0 Beta Available
11 November, 2018

A new beta version of appleseed has been released. Version 2.0 brings several significant improvements to the core including improved subsurface scattering, NPR shaders, and new visualization tools. Let’s have a look at other details below.

Some of the updates:

  • The Blender plugin now offers interactive rendering, AOV suppor, and increased stability and performance.
  • The Autodesk 3ds Max plugin now features volumetric rendering, denoising, shading overrides, configurable pixel filtering and per ray-type bounce limits. The 3ds Max plugin is now available for 3ds Max 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.
  • The Autodesk Maya plugin now features AOV support, support for color and curve ramps, render stamp support and a redesigned Render Settings user interface. In addition, Maya 2018 is now supported.

Updates to the core engine:

  • A new state-of-the-art adaptive tile sampler that provides much better performance than the former adaptive pixel sampler (deprecated in this release). 
  • A new ray tracing backend based on Embree, a highly optimized ray tracing library by Intel.
  • Many improvements to curve representation, storage and intersection. 
  • Improved random-walk subsurface scattering implementation. 
  • An OSL shader implementing cartoon shading and another one implementing contour rendering.
  • Rectangular selection of light paths, false colors, relative luminance isolines, etc.
