Well, small/medium intuos pro is way cheaper that iPad Pro + pencil... just saying... And it works better with ZBrush...
It might ultimately be proof of concept now, but the point of showing a low-count bounce raytracing that still looks decent especially after denoising gives us a nice roadmap on the future. Maybe given time, we will move to this as the new standard or at least a probable alternate to baked lighting.
Fuck you I'm stuck in some bullshit game some dickhead thought would be exciting.
How big is Blender? It’s pretty big. According to the most recent press release from Blender Foundation (via Cgpress), this 3d modeling software is being downloaded over a half a million times per month. During 2016 alone, more than 6.5 copies of software were downloaded.
That’s some great numbers, especially if you consider that they don’t include experimental builds, test builds and other stuff. You do have to consider that the software is free and it’s available for both Mac and PC. There’s no information as to whether all the downloaded copies are actively used.
