Add Rendering to Your Application

Thinking about adding physically-based rendering to your application’s workflow? AMD Radeon™ ProRender delivers stunningly photorealistic images and now supports real-time viewport ray-tracing, enabling faster render times and high frame rates for photorealistic assets.

Radeon™ ProRender is built on industry-standard OpenCL™ and Apple® Metal® 2, making it hardware agnostic so it runs on virtually any OS and virtually any combination of GPUs and CPUs.

Radeon™ ProRender is available through a royalty-free software licensing agreement and with ongoing development of new features and functionality. The Radeon™ ProRender roadmap is shared with developer partners so they can plan ahead, and engineering support may also be available for those who need it. 1

Open-Source AMD Radeon™ ProRender

Commitment to Open Standards

Radeon™ ProRender is also available on GitHub as an open-source implementation of the Radeon™ ProRender API, for developers looking to add physically-based rendering to their application’s workflow without needing a software licensing agreement.

Please note, the Radeon™ ProRender plug-ins and add-ins for Autodesk® 3ds Max®, Autodesk® Maya®, Blender™, and SOLIDWORKS® (that are not open-source) have some features which are not currently available in the open-source Radeon™ ProRender package.

Pixar USD Hydra Render Delegate

Transforming Content Creation Pipelines

Pixar’s open-source Universal Scene Description (USD) seeks to transform content creation pipelines and part of the USD toolset is the USDView interactive viewport designed to preview complex scenes.

For developers looking to integrate this modern viewport into their application, AMD has released the code for an open-source Radeon™ ProRender USD Hydra render delegate plug-in on GitHub that adds path-traced rendering designed for more accurate previews when compared to the default OpenGL® renderer.
