E-Cycles 2.93 rc available now and new version E-Cycles 7 in development!

Hello everyone,

You can now download new builds of E-Cycles 2.93 (2021.1) with a load of improvements and polishing. Denoising was further fine tuned to deliver very high level of details on textures even at very low sample and OIDN 1.4, which came out 5 days ago is already included in the 3.0 builds!

For Pro users, I also uploaded a feature overview video to your downloads. I recommend to watch it to get the most out of E-Cycles 2.93. I also uploaded a new tutorial on the new portal creator, which will both make your render cleaner and your workflow much easier.

I got a lot of questions regarding Cycles X integration, the main question was about faster rendering of course. I started a new optimization branch called E-Cycles 7 some time ago. Currently, it provides between 1.5x and 3x faster rendering compared to Cycles X while having most of the features of E-Cycles like light groups, volumetrics, E-Cycles AI-Denoiser, etc. It also doesn't use any of the Cycles X improvements yet, so E-Cycles 7 and Cycles X could stack in the future.

I'm also working an a brand new animation denoising AI, I'll show first results also with more details on E-Cycles 7 on Twitter. You can follow @Ecycles1 if you want to follow the latest development and maybe get access to early preview builds. You are welcome to spread the word, it really helps!

Happy rendering!

Mathieu


PS: Graph showing how many extra GPUs E-Cycles 7 is equivalent to. On the Chocofur interior 3, E-Cycles 7 with a single RTX 3090 is as fast as Cycles X with 3x RTX 3090.
