You can see more examples on Tim Barton's Artstation page!
iMeshh, a store known for their extremely high quality assets, have also switched entirely to E-Cycles. Their team have made a great video about the features that helped them most in their workflow:
The Episode VII of the french team Nexus VI was made with Blender and E-Cycles.
Artists using E-Cycles
- For performance reasons, E-Cycles includes a full version of Blender; this will be the case until there is a suitable render Engine API to allow the integration of an external render engine with optimal performance.
- Support is only for the E-Cycles parts. Bugs also found in Blender builds are to be reported to the Blender Foundation on developer.blender.org
- The base speed-up is now available for $1 and not accepted as a refund reason for the Pro version, which is now focused on features, workflow improvements and state of the art image quality. If you are only interested in the speed-up only, please take the $1 version available here.
- Viewport denoising with OptiX and SSAA 4x and up requires a lot of memory, please be sure to have enough GPU memory available after the scene is loaded or reduce the size of the render window.
