New OSL renderer
I'm really happy to share this exciting news with you. We just announced and released Clarisse 5.5 Early Access which features Angie our new CPU+GPU renderer for Clarisse fully based on OSL.
I really wanted to thank you all. OSL has been really instrumental for making Angie possible. Not only OSL gives Angie fantastic performance, but also offers our users a powerful language to write shaders and materials that run likewise on CPU or GPU!
Thanks to OSL, we also managed to create a Rosetta Stone Library which automatically converts Clarisse's classic lookdev nodes to OSL during rendering.
Of course, thanks to OSL once again since we managed to offer the support of MaterialX without having to worry about the shader generation part... :)
So on behalf of all the staff at Isotropix, I really wanted to thank you all for your awesome contribution to this amazing project! Long live OSL! ;)

Here the link to the live stream of the event https://youtu.be/IUtomHUVndU where you will be able to see the type of performance we get with Angie and OSL on a $2500 gaming laptop. That's pretty surreal!
Thanks again to everyone and see you tomorrow I guess :)
