Blender Cycles in action - Archviz


Awesome Cycles demo by Hamza Cheggour!

Hamza writes:

A quick demo showcasing the power of blender's render engine (Cycles) in archviz rendering.

The purpose of this demo is to show you how practical cycles is, and how much it helps to quickly set shaders / material colors, change the lighting and set the render views

The video playback run slightly faster than normal speed, but you can see the real render times in the top of the render view "elapsed"

The used hardware specs (GPU rendering):

CPU: intel core i7 2600 3.5GHz - RAM: 16Gb
GPUs: Geforce GTX285 as a display device 2x Geforce GTX580 as CUDA compute devices

The next time video: Blender Cycles in action - interior rendering

Follow my works and stay tuned.

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 ;-)


  1. impressive! THat's fast enough you can sit down with someone without 3d experience and they can be shown what final output will look like, well done.

    P.S. nice machine!

  2. Extremely impressive! Some of those shots look almost indistinguishable from real life. Cycles is a stunning render engine and with GPU support so fast that it's almost magical.
