A client asked me to create a jewellery animation to compete at the best level. During WIP, I was told to use Luxrender or Yafaray, but after several tests, I decided to stick with Cycles. Maybe it is because I love Cycles, or Cycles loves me. I will use other renderers in other projects.
The final animation is Full HD at 24 fps. Rendering took some days, but rendering times were really decent. I did not use the new denoiser, as with fur it severely underperformes.
