Unlike renderers that employ confusing arbitrary parameters, Bella aims to speak a more natural language, based on real world concepts and units. This means that in addition to rendering quickly, Bella is also very predictable, allowing you to avoid wasting time with trial and error during scene setup.
Fast Spectral Rendering
Bella's state of the art spectral solvers open a world of visual richness and detail that you have been missing with your RGB renderer.
Optical effects such as the beautiful dispersion seen here, emerge naturally with no need of hacks or workarounds.

Focus on Performance
Bella's fast CPU solvers provide performance on par with what some others require GPU to achieve, and the ongoing development of hybrid CPU/GPU support will only widen this gap.
Below, we see Saturn CPU producing results similar to Cycles CPU in Rhino, but in around 1/5 the time.
Time: 12.8 minutes
Time: 25 minutes
Time: 62 minutes
Bella's fast Saturn solver is especially suitable for architectural work.
For instance, it handles typical sunlit glass facades with ease, using real glass materials, with no special setup.
