I’m very sorry to read the news that U-Render has closed its doors especially as their latest release was such a strong release which had so many stand out features.
When I was a C4D user and Tachyon render was announced I contacted the developers and asked them to make a realtime NPR rendering solution but they wrote back and said they were focussing on the PBR market. I thought a real time sketch and toon renderer would’ve carved itself a decent sized market, their latest release had a great toon/NPR rendering toolset.
The European wide economy is being tanked by the idiots in charge unfortunately good people and good companies are going to pay the price for the enormous sanctions blowback we’re experiencing, and it hasn’t even hit Winter yet.
Thoughts with those who’ve lost their income and hope they get back into work ASAP. Maybe a buyer could be found for U-Render to keep the tech alive?
