What is the fastest setting for k cycle? Cuda or optix?

In K-CyclesX usually is best in preferences set it optix and turn off the cpu. In some cases with GTX cards can be faster with cuda.

Another thing is. The new 2.93.3 is same as blender 2.93.3 right?

It is the 2.93.4rc. It has more bug fixes than 2.93.3.

Really loving kcycles. Amazing for lookdev. Thanks for the addon!

That was my goal to make all the VFX effects easy and interactive as possible. Glad you are enjoying kcycles.

New features:

K-Cycles Post FX presets are like other presets in Blender. On the right of the Bloom or other effects is the preset button. There already is a “Default” preset to reset the settings or create a new preset with the “+” or delete a preset with “-”. Can have custom settings per individual VFX effects. To apply a preset click on preset name. The values won’t change until the mouse is moved outside the window, then need to enable the effects again for the preset to take effect. Due to a Blender bug that has been already reported. See picture below:


K-Cycles Post FX transparency with Film->Transparent is supported with all the effects. Great for decal, sprites, animation, parallax and others. Make sure to use “OpenEXR” file save format with “RGBA” color and color depth float(Half) is enough. This format captures the full dynamic range of the effects.

Tone mapping "Blur and “Sharpening” effects.

Ultra Denoiser got new “Individual Passes”. Enabled individual light passes denoising.Can be used in the compositor or image editing application.
