DirectX®12 and Vulkan® API-based Full Spectrum Rendering technology supports every stage of the rendering pipeline from rasterized to path-traced reality5.

Next generation rendering

Upgraded to Radeon™ ProRender 2.0 with an improved rendering algorithm and support for hardware-accelerated ray tracing on AMD Radeon™ RX 6000 Series graphics cards.

...and it's free!

Free Radeon™ ProRender plug-ins are currently available for many popular 3D content-creation applications to create stunning, physically accurate renders

Radeon™ ProRender plug-ins

Open source plug-ins and add-ons are freely available for developers to use as implementation examples and for the rendering community to build upon.

Autodesk® Maya®, Blender®, and SideFX® Houdini™ plug-ins support hardware-accelerated ray tracing when used with AMD Radeon™ RX 6000 Series graphics cards.

AMD USD Hydra Plug-in for Blender


Pixar® USD™ technology is quickly becoming an industry standard, and Blender® is an equally important 3D software that needs to work in a larger ecosystem of other content creation applications. 

There is now a robust and open way to exchange and assemble data from multiple assets in Blender thanks to our new USD™ Hydra™ plug-in that includes Radeon™ ProRender and uses the open source MaterialX standard for materials.

What our partners are saying about Radeon™ ProRender

“AMD has made great use of Microsoft’s low-level machine learning API, DirectML, to implement a powerful and efficient Denoising filter within AMD’s Radeon ProRender graphics rendering engine.”

– Kam VedBrat, Partner Group Program Manager, Microsoft

“As we continue to grow our business and meet new customer demands with our products, adding photorealistic rendering capabilities to InstaLOD Studio XL was a logical next step.

With the new version of InstaLOD Studio XL, and the partnership with AMD and its Radeon ProRender technology, we continue on our path to disrupt the industry.

–  Manfred M. Nerurkar, CEO, InstaLOD GmbH

“For our rendering solution, we had three primary requirements. First is that the render needs to be fast and photorealistic. Second is that the solution needed to be hardware-agnostic allowing us to reach a larger install base. Third is that we need a partner who is easy to work with. AMD and Radeon ProRender met these needs and enabled us to deliver a great solution to the market.”

 – Shane Griffith, Senior Product Manager, MODO

“At ACCA, we focus on Building Information Modelling solutions that simplify the workflow for our users.  That is what attracted us to Radeon ProRender. It is a powerful rendering technology, was straightforward for our engineers to implement, and is easy for our customers to use.”

–  Guido Cianciulli, CEO, ACCA software

Open-source Radeon ProRender

Information about the open-source availability of the Radeon™ ProRender renderer. We will give a brief summary of its features and provide some technical insights into the internals of the renderer.

  1. AMD Radeon™ ProRender Linux® support is currently only available for Foundry® Modo® and for the Blender® and SideFX® Houdini™ plug-ins.
  2. AMD Radeon™ ProRender macOS® support is currently only available for Foundry® Modo® and MAXON Cinema 4D™, and for the Autodesk® Maya®, Blender®, and SideFX® Houdini™ plug-ins.
  3. When using AMD Radeon™ ProRender 2.0 with support for GPU + GPU rendering, the AMD Radeon™ Pro VII GPU enables up to 16% faster render times when compared to CPU rendering alone, and the AMD Radeon™ Pro VII + AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ 3990X enables up to 47% faster GPU+CPU render times when compared to GPU rendering alone in the internal AMD “Breakfast room” render test. Testing conducted by AMD Performance Labs as of April 29, 2020, on the AMD Radeon™ Pro VII graphics card and pre-release AMD Radeon™ Pro Software for Enterprise 20.Q2, on a test system comprising an AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ 3990X, 64 GB DDR4 RAM, MSI TRX40 motherboard with BIOS version 1.22N3 at default settings, 500 GB SSD, Windows® 10 Pro November 2019 Update. Benchmark Application: ran the Radeon™ ProRender 2.0 SDK internal AMD render test rendering the “Breakfast room” render. Scores are based on AMD internal lab measurements and may vary. RPS-127
  4. Only available with the AMD Radeon™ ProRender plug-ins for Autodesk® 3ds Max®, Autodesk® Maya®, and Blender®.
  5. Full Spectrum Rendering is only available for the Autodesk® Maya® (Windows® only), Blender®, SideFX® Houdini™, and Unreal® Engine plug-ins.
