Kerkythea will go commercial

In a slight reversal of most of the mails on this blog, it appears that both Kerkythea and Indigo renderers will try the commercial route. They were not Open Source, but free. Let's see if they can stand up against the other commercial engines...

  1. Thats quite sad but inevitable. Kerkythea is great and easy to use. I use it with sketchup and it links in really well.

  2. Apparently, they decided to keep Kerkythea free and add Thea as a commercial rendering system instead.

    Info on http://www.thearender.com

    It will have different licensing prices (single, standard, renderslave and academic). The exporters for 3D applications will also not be free.

    But the application isn't available yet.
