What is FurryBall?

FurryBall is an extremely fast rendering system using the processing power of your GPU instead of your CPU. FurryBall offers UNBIASED Monte Carlo raytracing (path trace - similar like CPU Arnold renderer), with real-time progressive preview in the viewport. Final frame rendering to multiple file format, layers and passes are obvious. FurryBall was developed for purposes of CGI animated movies, VFX and feature movie rendering. FurryBall RT is extra simple and easy to use for an artist - you can tune whole image quality with only a single parameter if you want.

GPU rendering doesn't load you CPU at all - much faster work on your system during rendering.

FurryBall RT can be used also like GPU preview render for Arnold render, because it supports Arnold standard material too  almost all parameters are supported. Try those samples.

Each license comes with ALL THREE plugins (Maya, Cinema 4D, and 3DS Max)  with very unique and smooth collaboration between them. FurryBall fully supports an unlimited number of  GPU in a single computer and also can be used like standalone renderer.


Cooperation between Maya, Cinema 4D and 3DS Max, Arnold shader, Toon shader.


FurryBall was used by many productions since 2008 (Blizzard, Valve, Microsoft, Hydrogen Whiskey Studios, Nickelodeon, Xantus, WinSing, Cluster Studio, Moon Bites, WinSing, Pixals, Full Dimensional and much more.) 
AAA studio produced  full-length CGI feature for cinemas in 2012 in FurryBall

FurryBall is ideal fo Cartoon like animation rendering.

FurryBall offers all required features and high quality as regular CPU renders. 



Why use GPU?

  • Up to 3x-15x faster than conventional CPU ray tracing
  • Doesn't load CPU at all - much faster work on your system.
  • Much cheaper (3x-15x less rendering units than CPU render)
  • Real-time preview in Maya, Max or Cinema window.
  • Easy scalable (Multi-GPU on single computer)
  • More artistic freedom (much faster preview and results)
  • Less heating and electricity consumption (less rendering units)


GPU vs. CPU rendering speed compare

Comparison tests

According to our comparison tests, GPU ray tracing with FurryBall is up to 3x-15x faster than CPU raytracers in same visual quality.



Why FurryBall?

Up to this date almost ALL GPU renderers have many technical problems and limitations (memory, texture number limits, output size, quality, lack of features), FurryBall deals with all of these:
You will get ALL THREE plugins for FREE (Maya, 3DS Max, Cinema 4D)

  • Unbiased and Biased rendering

  • Hair, Fur, Fluids, Particles, Displacement

  • Unlimited output resolution 

  • Unlimited number of textures

  • Unlimited number of lights

  • Raytraced Physically-based full global illumination ray tracing

  • and much more


News in version 4


Stop wasting time and your money waiting for your render, work in real-time right now! You can switch between preview and final rendering simply by changing your preset. Do you want to see the dynamic behavior of your character’s hair? Shake it! Do you need to change the amount of reflection or index of refraction? Change it in real-time! Do you want to render into layers? Just make your choice...
