A phys­i­cally based CPU ren­derer that re­cently added GPU sup­port, but only for NVIDIA GPUS on Win­dows and Linux. Arnold was de­vel­oped in co­op­er­a­tion with Sony Pic­tures Image­works and has been used for films like Cloudy With A Chance Of Meat­balls

and Grav­ity. The Cinema 4D

ver­sion is well im­ple­mented and the IPR (in­ter­ac­tive pre­view ren­der) is very fast. You will need to in­vest some time to learn all the fea­tures, but the doc­u­men­ta­tion is ex­cel­lent. The ren­der re­sults are re­li­able and have great phys­i­cal qual­ity.

Arnold was one of the first renderers that sim­pli­fied the

ren­der set­tings to make them more artist friendly. With adap­tive sam­pling, the ren­der is au­to­mat­i­cally op­ti­mised for parts that need more time in or­der to pro­duce noise-free re­sults. In my ex­pe­ri­ence, in­vest­ing some time to do it man­u­ally does re­sult in faster ren­der times.
