Arion is described as 'is the hybrid-accelerated and physically-based light simulator developed by RandomControl. It inherits all our expertise in light simulation and makes it run on steroids, thanks to our very unique approach to massive CPU+GPU+LAN computation' and is an app in the system & hardware category. There are more than 25 alternatives to Arion for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux, Sketchup and Blender. The best alternative is Adobe Dimension. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try LuxCoreRender or POV-Ray. Other great apps like Arion are Keyshot, V-Ray, appleseed and RenderMan.

Arion alternatives are mainly 3D Modelers but may also be 3D Animators or Animation Makers. Filter by these if you want a narrower list of alternatives or looking for a specific functionality of Arion.
