Radeon™ ProRender is a powerful physically-based rendering engine that enables creative professionals to produce stunningly photorealistic images. Built on highly efficient, high-performance Radeon™ Rays technology, Radeon™ ProRender's complete, scalable ray tracing engine uses open industry standards to harness GPU and CPU performance for swift, impressive results.

This Radeon™ ProRender plug-in for Blender™ ​is a feature rich solution which enables the user to render high quality images of their models.  With this tool, users can render and then perform a host of post image processes.  These include:

    • Tone Mapping
    • White Balance
    • Gamma Correction
    • Depth of Field
    • Motion Blur
    • Global Illumination

Below is a summary of fixed and known issues for the ​Radeon™ ProRender plug-in for Blender™.

Fixed Issues

    • Fix for situations where the “Include uncertified devices” setting in the Render Settings could not be enabled.
    • Object primary visibility can be disabled. This is especially useful for portal geometry so it does not block backgrounds.
    • Portals no longer emit the background color
    • ​Background images can be used without enabling IBL lighting.

Known Issues

    • The user may observe minor variances in results between CPUs and GPUs with Diffuse Refraction
    • Box image with zero radius may result in blurring of image on CPUs
    • The user may observe subdivision artifacts on CPUs
    • Infrequent crashing observed on CPUs during stressful testing
    • Glass and transparency renders on wrong alpha channel have been observed
    • Application crashes have been observed when using node editor
    • Infrequent platform dependent application crashes observed when exiting high quality and volume renders
    • With CPU rendering, distortion and shearing have been observed
