How to Render Bifrost Strands with Arnold’s Toon Shader

Lee Griggs shows how to render Bifrost strand patterns with Arnold Toon.

Check out this class from Autodesk’s Vision Series at SIGGRAPH 2021, where Arnold Rendering Specialist Lee Griggs shows how you can use Arnold Toon shader to create whimsical renderings from Bifrost Strands.

The demonstration makes some use out of Bifrost’s new Hurricane Noise compound. Griggs runs through simple lighting, creating color for a background using a RaySwitch, and creating the outlines for the strands.
