More teasing from Arnold?

I've just read a review of Arnold for C4D in 3D World, including prices, but you head over to Solid Angle and it says it's still coming soon. With that and the cmiVFX training, it makes me think there's an Arnold party going on and I didn't get the invite.
Anyone know what's going on?

Don't worry on these early rushed takes

Obviously this guy doesn't now C4DtoA too well.. and even fails to spell my name correctly (talking of rushing things again)

I'm thinking that this might be a more authoritative source of information:

http://www.fmx.de/program2015/event/5641

I'll be there!

I really wouldn't bother, its not worth buying if you are only looking for that single page so-called "review".

wasn't going to buy it - just go to the magazine store and read it!

what were the prices btw?
 
  04 April 2015
It's in the June edition and the prices are written as "GBP1,000 , GBP 875, $1300 (per licence or render node)". What that means exactly, I don't know.

If it were accurate, it'd mean that the base license would be 1,000 for the primary workstation GUI license, and 875 for each render node.

For a one-man band with a small render farm like me then vrayforC4D looks like quite the bargain.

Yes, Arnold might be a good renderer but it's too expensive for freelancers or small studios. I'm also waiting to try it but it looks that with those prices, I'll have to let it go. Lets see!
Vray is a lot more friendly in that regard, not to mention the $500 price tag for Renderman (C4D plugin in development) and Corona renderer V1.0 scheduled to this year.

That's surely a typo, since the pricing on solidangle.com is "EUR 1000, GBP 875, USD 1300"

Ouch. THREE TIMES the cost of Octane Render? I don't see the value.

Hm, lets do some math here:

Octane standalone: 300,-

Octane C4D: 200,-

Octane Maya: 200,-

Octane Max: 200,- (I know theres no Arnold for Max, but lets assume its for Houdini here instead)

Octane Modo or Lightwave: 200,- (As XSI is still in beta, its cheaper currently but cannot be compared to SItoA which is production proven and ready..)

Adds up too 1.100,- Euros.. which is more than Arnolds solely price...

But if you don't see the value, besides comparing Octane to Arnold, which isn't playing in the same league anyways, then its probably not reasonable for you So what was your comment supposed to mean again?

The comment means "Arnold looks to be relatively expensive." You are correct about this: my math was indeed faulty. Arnold would work out to not triple the price of Octane for C4D but to a bit more than twice the price, if I understand Arnold's pricing correctly, which perhaps I still do not.

As for "not in the same league," I cannot say until I have had a chance to compare them. Octane has been a game-changer for me so far. I am looking forward to testing Arnold when it becomes available.
