Arnold software is an advanced Monte Carlo raytracing renderer. It’s designed for artists and for the demands of modern animation and visual effects (VFX) production. Arnold is compatible with Maya, Houdini, Cinema 4D, 3ds Max, and Katana.

Key Features

Subsurface scatter

High-performance ray-traced subsurface scattering eliminates the need to tune point clouds.

Hair and fur

Memory-efficient ray-traced curve primitives help you create complex fur and hair renders.

Motion blur

3D motion blur interacts with shadows, volumes, indirect lighting, reflection, or refraction. Deformation motion blur and rotational motion are also supported.


The volumetric rendering system in Arnold can render effects such as smoke, clouds, fog, pyroclastic flow, and fire.
