High Quality Rendering for SketchUp Renditioner v3 for Window enables you to produces stunning photorealistic renderings of your SketchUp models. It generates images up to 1 mega-pixel, producing high quality images for displaying online. (For print quality renders, see Renditioner Pro) This powerful yet easy to use plug-in automatically loads your model when launched directly from SketchUp. You then simply drag and drop materials, finishes, bump maps and backgrounds onto your model. Access high performance camera controls and HDR-based lighting controls to make more realistic-looking renders. Even take SnapShots of render configurations to replay your scenes. Speed rendering with progressive rendering and produce higher material quality for more photorealistic renders with material blurring. Plus, multi-threaded rendering speeds the generation time as fast as your system can go.
High Performance Cameras and Lighting using HDR High Dynamic Range (HDR) provides a greater range of tonal and contrast detail than ever before. This opens up a whole new set of lighting possibilities with additional realism that can be a game changer in terms of new rendering capabilities that go beyond just ray-tracing effects. Use the Camera controls to set your View, examine and move around your model, and select the distance to the rendered object or scene with different camera lenses. You can also set the aspect ratio and up vector for a more accurate preview of how your render will be oriented, and create a simple turntable animation! Lighting controls include drag and drop lighting settings for Interior, Exterior, Studio and Ambient lighting, and slider based controls for Sun position and rotation of the Environment. The result of these powerful and professional controls is incredibly realistic rendering results with far less effort and learning curve.
Extensive Libraries of Content We’ve got you covered. Renditioner Pro offers a well organized library of over 150 materials, 72 finishes, 50, 2D and 3D bump maps, and 27, 2D and 3D backgrounds, all of which are easily applied by simply dragging and dropping them onto your model. You can also access additional content through the LightWorks’ Aspects Digital Asset Library.
Easy User Interface with Tutorials Included Effortlessly manipulate your SketchUp model with professional image controls that are intuitively organized into brief menus for easy access. Applying attributes are as simple as drag and drop, and once added, Renditioner Pro allows you to take snapshots of particular configurations to save for later giving you added flexibility. Simple commands are there too like print from screen and portrait and landscape settings. And if you have questions, the PDF-based help is right at your fingertips, along with tutorials to walk you step-by-step through your first render.
System Requirements for Windows
Minimum Specification • Windows XP SP2+, Vista or Windows 7 – Renditioner will run on 64bit Windows, but it will run as a 32bit application • Intel Compatible CPU; ~1 GHz processor. • 512 MB RAM. • 300 MB of available hard-disk space. • 3D class Video Card with 128 MB of memory or higher. Please ensure that the video card driver supports the unified shader model (i.e. DirectX 10.1 • and Shader Model 4.0) and OpenGL 2.0. The video card drivers should be up to date.
Recommended Specification • Windows XP SP2+, Vista or Windows 7 – Renditioner will run on 64bit Windows, but it will run as a 32bit application • Intel Compatible CPU; Dual or Quad core; ~3+ GHz processor. • 2+ GB RAM. • 300 MB of available hard-disk space. • 3D class Video Card with 128 MB of memory or higher. Please ensure that the video card driver supports the unified shader model (i.e. DirectX 10.1 and Shader Model 4.0) and OpenGL 2.0. The video card drivers should be up to date. A NVidia QuadroFX, series card will handle these features comfortably. We would avoid using integrated graphics chipsets, such as the Intel based ones at this time.
