Render[in] 3 for SketchUp is now available!

March 1, 2016

Abvent announced the launch of Render[in] 3, a fully-integrated, real-time radiosity engine developed for SketchUp users (only compatible with SketchUp v2015 and v2016). Powered by Artlantis 6’s rendering engine, Render[in] 3 gives SketchUp users the high-definition, realistic renderings they’ve been looking for, in a robust, easy-to-use application.

New Features

  • New Physical Engine
    To create stunning images, Render[in] 3 now includes its own built-in physical engine, emphasizing physical rendering quality, precision, material accuracy, and energy conservation.
  • New Rendering Pre-settings
    Choose among many pre-set modes (indoor, outdoor, low light) and different definitions (speed, medium, quality), to quickly set the best results! If you want to fine tune the settings you can manually modify each parameter to set your own values.
  • Ambient Occlusion Effect
    This new option in Render[in] 3 allows users to display a global ambient occlusion to create virtual shadows in small areas where natural light doesn’t go. It brings more depth and relief to both interior and exterior scenes.
  • New Lights Specifications
    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 with the text.
  • New Neon Material
    In addition, neon lights have been completely updated for this version with considerable gains in terms of quality and calculation speed.
  • Architect Camera
    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 keeping the vertical lines parallel.
  • iVisit360 compatibility
    Designed and developed by Abvent for architects, designers, photographers and the professional imagery industry, iVisit360 is an innovative technology dedicated to panoramic and virtual tour presentations. Sharing 360° panoramas on mobile devices or on the Internet is simple, fun and effective with iVisit360. Abvent has developed two new free players: HTML5 and Windows Phone players.
