The holiday season is here! To celebrate this time of year, Isotropix brings you plenty of updates, early presents and joyful suprises. Angie has been released in Early Access and is ready for download now. We hosted our final Live event of the year, in which we uncovered the workflow of Angie inside Clarisse. Our December Live, along with our new Angie Early Access tutorial series, will guide you through our advanced renderer. We also released Clarisse 5 SP6 with lots of new features and enhancements. 

Happy Holidays!

First and foremost, we want to wish you a happy holiday season and cheerful New Year from Isotropix! Thank you for another great year filled with fantastic new projects #MadeWithClarisse. As usual, our office will be closed from December 25 to January 2, included. We will be returning first week of January, ready to take on the new year with you and see what extraordinary work you have in store for us.

Angie Early Access

To finish 2021 on a high note, we brought you an early Christmas gift with the release of Angie Early Access.

Angie is seamlessly integrated into Clarisse, lets users render on CPU, GPU or both combined, features a new Previz render mode and includes full support for OSL and MaterialX. Along with simplified controls, Angie optimizes render performance and quality. Download Clarisse 5.5 Early Access at to experience the power of Angie for yourself.
