PARIS, February 1, 2016 – Abvent SA has announced the launch of Render[in] 3 for SketchUp in a public beta test lasting through February 29. Render[in] is a fully-integrated, real-time physical radiosity engine developed for SketchUp Make and Pro users. Powered by Artlantis 6’s rendering engine, Render[in] gives SketchUp users the high-definition, realistic renderings they’ve been looking for, in a robust, easy-to-use application.
Compatible with SketchUp versions 2015 and 2016, Render[in] 3 uses the same settings as SketchUp, so learning how to create high-definition renderings is fast and easy. Once the model is ready, Render[in] brings designs to life, by offering realistic additions like a 3D sky, four types of clouds, and modifiable lighting sources. Render[in] also offers additional texture settings to choose from, like specular reflection and shininess, and auto-bump for materials.
What’s new in Render[in] 3?
To create stunning images, Render[in] 3 most notably now includes its own built-in physical engine, emphasizing physical rendering quality, precision, material accuracy, and energy conservation.
Render[in] 3 is even more realistic when it comes to the distribution and dispersion of artificial lights. A light is created from any SketchUp group or component; a single surface creates a spotlight, while a volume creates a point light. Easily find and edit these Render[in] Lights in the Outliner. In addition, neon lights have been completely updated for this version with considerable gains in terms of quality and calculation speed.
Render[in] 3 brings you a new visual effect called the Architect Camera. This function works well for tall buildings as well as for normal-sized objects. Using this technique, you get a 2-point perspective while keeping the vertical lines parallel.
Designed and developed by Abvent for architects, designers, photographers and the professional imagery industry, iVisit360 is an innovative technology dedicated to creating panoramas and virtual tours. Sharing 360° panoramas on mobile devices or on the Internet is simple, fun and effective with iVisit360. Abvent has also developed two new free players: HTML5 and Windows Phone players.
