Accelerating Artist workflows with Arnold GPU

Eric Bourque (Autodesk), Frederic Servant (Autodesk)

Join Arnold Developer Manager, Frederic Servant, to learn all about the latest updates in Arnold 5.3 – including the highly-anticipated GPU beta which gives artists a first taste of GPU rendering in Arnold, and the flexibility to switch seamlessly between rendering on the CPU and the GPU. From look development to lighting, Frederic will cover how support for GPU acceleration in the Academy Award winning production renderer now brings even greater interactivity and speed to artist workflows.
