Very nice to have Cycles updated.....

Using the updater i get the error "unable to the cycles 4d folder" and i don't manage to fix that, don't know why but it keeps changing back.
Would be good to have a direct download link, the one i received when buying goes to the older version.

Thanks, Robert

EDIT.... Never mind, my mistake, I accidentally had it installed in two folders . Fixed now.

Wow! That's an impressive Cycles update. Can't wait to dig into it.

Cycles node environment feels clunky, slow and bolted on, and is sometimes mystifying in its functionality. For instance, I am very used to the native C4D edit fields and UI elements, and cranking values up or down is fast and intuitive (clicking and dragging up and down to scale a value, for instance). I know that if I "show attributes", I can access those familiar UI elements, but why isn't that on by default? Even the text antialiasing is strange, and doesn't respect retina/HiDPI screens.

There may be amazing advantages of this system that I haven't grokked yet, but so far I am skeptical of the value of this particular part of the Cycles UI.

Cycles looks great. Does it utilize multiple gpu's?
I tried the demo and was impressed, but didn't purchase because I'm reluctant to learn a node based shader workflow at the moment.

It does. I have friends who are using it on 4x1080TI's and loving it! lol
