The Virtual Lands contain 3d digital art related items by Olivier Ffrench : a 3d gallery with images made with Bryce, Vue Infinite, the plant Factory, Poser, Hexagon and 3d resources: models to download, tutorials, textures and links.

Vue vs Bryce vs Octane render: antialiasing

Vue vs Bryce vs Octane render: antialiasing

I unsed to complain about the quality of antialiasing in Vue compared to the one you can get in Bryce. As I wanted to see if Bryce-like quality could be obtained in Vue, I set up a similar scene in both programs and rendered it to have a fair comparison. As I have been using Octane Render lately, I have added it to the test.
