Cycles Source Code + First Builds Now Available

83

Ton Roosendaal has committed the first version of Blender's new GPU accelerated rendering engine 'Cycles', which means that the source code is now available. As a result, the first builds are already available on Graphicall.org (which has been redesigned - more news on that later!)

Ton makes it clear that the code is entirely Brecht's own work (and includes open source projects by NVidia and Sony Pictures). Please note: any unfounded mudslinging towards Brecht in the comments will not be tolerated from now on.

About Author

Bart Veldhuizen

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.

  1. It's difficult to build on Windows due to all the dependencies- But I think that Brecht said on #blendercoders that he has managed it. Probably needs some work before it builds well. It's hard to be patient, I know, I haven't been able to build it on Ubuntu yet. :P

  2. Hi all,

    The UI of this build is different from the official release.... and it's much more clear !! It's looks realy better : more readable properties, just a thin black line to separate areas, and a smaller UI font !!!
    Could we have it in the main trunk ???!!!

  3. GraphicAll looks really nice now ;)
    And I'm also waiting for the Windows build ...
    Will this also work with AMD or just with Nvidia GPU's?

  4. Very excited about this! And great to see OSL and OIIO going into this at the start. There's increasingly a bunch of good looking code coming from the studios these days (see http://opensourcevfx.org/ for a partial list), so it's awesome to see blender exploring new, modern rendering architectures that can use them, rather than hammering away on the internal workhorse forever.

    So, is this going to be blender's answer to Arnold? :-)

  5. Ton it should be 'excluded open source projects by NVidia and Sony Pictures' unless Brecht actually wrote the open-source code for NVidia and Sony Pictures?

  6. eeeeh :-)

    noone forces you to use windows.....
    and linux/ubuntu doesnt cost a penny..... just uses some disk space :-P

  7. It is indeed freakin cool. I would advise windows only users to consider running linux under wubi or something just to test this out.

  8. I can't stil believ my eyes it renders faaaaast and exporting time comparing to external renders is just few seconds with lots of objects...Brecht you are Gog!!! Where do I have to donate for this purpose? or just to blender institute? this is fffff***** insane

  9. This is quite exciting!

    But I truly hope this won't be another "CUDA-only" project. I would be very sad about that. Other than that I'm happy with what's happening here.

  10. Goodbye Windows! Holy crap, I'd switch to Linux to get this performance out of Blender. The only thing I'd miss would be Adobe Flash.. but I think I'd manage. This is unreal!

  11. when I set CPU rendering it still 4000000 renders soo fast that I am stuned, (gpu run out of memory) so cpu is still verry fast

  12. TO Pancakaface: Yes we need more OPEN CL !!! By the way AMDs users have gotten new driver ! It has increased speed of Open CL !

  13. There is no reason to wait for a Windows version. For all those who want to try the linux version, you can install Ubuntu on a thumb drive, or even install it as an executable (the installer will build a partition and create a dual boot for you). Ubuntu works quite a bit like Windows, so it should be fairly intuitive getting Blender working once it is installed.

    Besides, once you try linux, you'll find there are more options for *free* video and audio editing available to you, which makes the development of media more accessible.

  14. The addition of a small word doesn't correct it, while your perspective might be a source-file #include, in the context of 'entirely own work' it is excluded from this, ironically the "#include's"...

  15. I'm gonna cry all over if devs don't release on windows :'(
    People just don't advertise Ubuntu as Cycles renderer only runs on it.

    Think of it not all companies run ubuntu (except servers), specially in our company
    it's difficult to switch over new ones.

    This will be a breakthrough for Blender to use across multi-platform.
    And I believe it will have a Cycles build for windows.

    (no offense here just telling the feelings from windows people)...

  16. @Matt
    You're probably missing some dependencies.

    if you pull down the "info (i)" header it will show you what's missing, else/or use ./blender from the linux terminal to lunch blender and the "errors" will show up there also.

    If you have a GPU with Cuda it will appear an extra selector to prompt you to choose between CPU or GPU, if you don't then it will use CPU by default, or so it seems.

    A thank you very much to the persons that made this possible!

  17. I quote
    "...unfounded mudslinging towards Brecht in the comments will not be tolerated from now on."

    for those with short span memories I´m sure the blender team are referring to this when they say they won´t tolerate any dirt on him:
    Proposal to Remove Features before 2.6
    http://www.blendernation.com/2010/07/09/proposal-to-remove-features-before-2-6/

    misteriously he was out of the blender team the very next week, mmm!

    remember? everyoone hated him for try and steal almost the most beloved tools, almost half of those whch have made blender unique. I´m disliked that fact too. Mayb e he meant temporarily, but he didn´t say that so everyone beared in mind that he was refusing a lot of great tools forever. hahahaha. I don´t mean he was bad, actually I was more in the position of "well, he is asking us in the name of the programmers team if we want them to fall out of the new version". Thankfully a lot of those still remain in these recent versions and I hope every tools made for the 2.49b version return to a newer version soon.

    Anyway, I didn´t expect him leaving that fast blender. Actually I wasn´t expecting him to leave at all! hahaha
    I think also is nice he is back and I hope they try more often to ask us, the users, about implementations they bear in mind of OUR beloved 3D application.

    Well, after that long comment I must say I find rather amusing this new render technology and the fact they have brought a build at least for linux. :-)

    Keep the good work guys! and remember ask us more often!

    P.S. this comment is founded.

    Any idea?

  19. i have this import problem.

    from cycles import libcycles_blender as lib
    ImportError: libboost_filesystem.so.1.42.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

  20. Denis Russkih on

    Can't run the program. :( Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit.

    $ ./blender
    ./blender: error while loading shared libraries: libpython3.2mu.so.1.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    I installed Python3.2 from official site, but the problem hasn't been fixed.

  21. Mierda me cago en el que hable mal de Brecht!! Well that was a rant. Now, can somebody tell me what do I need to be able to render with that beauty Brecht have done??? a special video card or something??

  22. This guy is so worth it, I am glad I was able to meet this living legend when I went to blender institute.
    Thanks for your genius.

  23. @chrishillman You can get flash working fine in Linux! Use Ubuntu, and you probably won't have to do anything to get it to work! Especially if you use Chromium. ;P

  24. got to playing with it now. this stuff is amazing!
    the live rendering is pretty fast for setting up the seen but it is slow to get something without noise.

    this is from a cpu though... gpu might be faster hoping/waiting for openCL

  25. I just got a question to the more advanced users out there.

    I saw the video of Brechts Rendering Engine on youtube from the link posted in another Blender Nation article earlier. Is the rendering just as fast as shown in that video?, What I mean is, Is that video completely real time?

    If so, that is indeed awesome

  26. doesn't even affect me with my equipment setup, but a large kudos to anyone taking on the rendering engine. while everyone seems pretty understanding, i really see this as an added plus (not to trivialize the great accomplishment in any way)... not necessarily a *feature* of blender.

    for all we know it may be kept as a separate fork. unfortunately, people hear stuff like this or see the previous realtime rendering video and they get serious 'me too!' syndrome. just as the developer has invested time, you may have to invest a machine and GFX card to have access to this tech.

    and for those saying 'build it yourself', as a hobby coder can i please ask you to be more diplomatic/politic. it doesn't help issues. it frustrates people. jumping into a new project is a bit overwhelming at the best of times. a project that will require people to slog through render engine code and interface with nvidia libraries and windows HAL mess.... i haven't done it myself (looked at blender's code) and am pitifully guessing but the mere idea makes me shudder.

    flip side of the coin, glad to see so many responses to this feature. :)

  27. Denis Russkih on

    @Kevin S.

    You confused me with josiasbh. :) I have no problem with libboost_filesystem.so.1.42.0.

    I have a problem with libpython3.2mu.so.1.0.

    $ ./blender
    ./blender: error while loading shared libraries: libpython3.2mu.so.1.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    There is not Python3.2 in repository for Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit. I installed Python3.2 from source (from official site), but the problem hasn’t been fixed. May be I need the last unstable version of Python3.2 from SVN?

  28. This is reeeeeallly sweet. :D

    For those asking for a windows build:

    I second the poster above who said to use wubi (google is your friend in finding this ;). Windows UBuntu Installer. It creates a virtual drive and installs an ubuntu .iso to this virtual drive. No messing with partitioning your hard drive with the associated risks of file loss or corruption, just a clean install. There is an included uninstaller which works cleanly and excellently. All you need to do is download an Ubuntu/Kubuntu/etc. .iso and wubi and make sure you have a few gigs (10 or more) of drive space free for a whole new operating system.

    For those inquiring about OpenCL check out the other post on Blendernation announcing Cycles. Brecht says that there are currently unsupported features in OpenCL itself that hinder development, but OpenCL is on the roadmap.

    What ist actual missing here? What do i need to install additional?

    Thanks a lot in advanced,

    Stephan.

  30. Wow, nice! Windows build is a must! no rush, but I will definitely be holding off until then. With Nvidia being involved though it seems like the windows build will be the best representation of functionality. Not many people have Nvidia cards on non windows machines, seems silly to build for Linux(cheap software) in conjunction with Nvidia cards(expensive hardware). I know it's more challenging, but ti will definitely be more useful to the community at large on Windows.

  31. @Amar:

    Actually, a lot of Linux users have nVidia cards. They have quality linux drivers which are officially supported and very easy to install.

    Some linux users don't have them because the drivers aren't open source themselves and they don't want to 'taint' the linux kernel with closed source software. There is an open source alternative nowadays, but the quality is not the same. (in my opinion)

    I used to have an ATI card once and it was awful on linux compared to the nVidia one I have now. I spent ages tweaking the setup and I was always discovering problems and rendering errors.

    I would recommend nVidia to anyone, irrespective of OS. If you just google it, you'll find a lot more people have problems using ATI. It's not the hardware that's lacking, it's the drivers and support!

  32. @epat
    ATI/AMD cards work the same way nvidia cards do now. and the control center is the same as the one on windows.

  33. Matt Heimlich on

    I also can't run the builds under 11.04 because of missing libpython3.2mu.1.0 library. Installing python 3.2 fixes nothing.

  34. grenzfrequence on

    @Matt Heimlich:

    Hi, perhaps the problem is solved if you install python3.2-dev and python3.1-dev. Could you tell me if you have same error messages than me?

    Greatings,

    Stephan.

  35. Got it working on Kubuntu! The pure awesomeness is just shining out of this thing! :)

    First there was only a black screen, had to copy the libOpenImageIO.so to /usr/lib/ because cycles did not see it.

  36. @thity install macports then run this in terminal: sudo port install openexr boost hdf5 tiff jpeg

    try this then report back if you have any problems

  37. I installed Ubuntu (with wubi) last night just to try Cycles out. Holy shit, it is FAST. I'm using a 2.3ghz AMD x4 with a Nvidia 460 gtx. Even when only using the CPU, it's still much faster than the regular Blender renderer.

  38. Matt Heimlich on

    Finally got it working. I ended up having to install the shared 3.2 runtime library, and then glut, boost, etc. Absolutely love it so far and can't wait to try it on my good computer tomorrow.

  39. hi, can we kindly ask for a windows version to test.? i have installed ubuntu but a lot of errors, i cant even install (nvidia) and graphics cards driver and cuda. im not sure what i am doing. it may take us time to use it.can we use windows build instead.? many thankszz!! chow!!

  40. or.. can we have some advise on what to do or install @ ubuntu (should i use 10 or 11?) to run blender-cycles?

  41. Hello. Really nice news that we can try that new renderer.

    But does anyone know if the renderer used for Sintel will also form part of the 2.6x series or only this new renderer? From different posts I've read, animation is not possible with "Cycle" type renderers. Sintel image quality really impressed me it would be owesome if we had it too.

    Thx to the Devs for the owesome work they are doing.
