Thea for SketchUp v3 available

Thea for SketchUp v3 available

A new version of Thea for SketchUp update (version 3.0) is now available for download. The upgrade for this high-end render plugin contains the following improvements:

  • Relight Editor
    Relight allows the user to create infinite images from a single render. When Relight is enabled, every light in the scene can then be modified (intensity, color and status) and create different lighting setups in post production. Every Relight setup can be saved in the Relight Editor panel as a Snapshot and then loaded back to the Darkroom for further editing or exported to an image file.
  • Intel® Open Image Denoiser
    The Intel Open Image Denoiser is now integrated inside Thea Render. The AI-accelerated denoiser provides high quality noise free images and runs on the CPU.
  • Interactive Denoising
    Denoising with both Intel’s and NVIDIA’s AI denoisers is also supported during an interactive rendering session.
  • Support for NVIDIA® CUDA® 11
    Thea Render makes use of the latest NVIDIA CUDA Toolkit which introduces support for the NVIDIA Ampere architecture.
  • Adaptive Tracing
    Adaptive Tracing is a technique that solves difficult lighting scenarios, such as caustics from point lights, sun pool caustics and diffuse interreflections. This results in images with a higher dynamic range and lighting effects that were previously impossible.
  • Random Color Texture
    Random color is a procedural texture that can be used to add variation to your instanced models and create rich looking images for grass, bushes, trees, wooden floors and more.
  • Local Proxy Material Editing
    Thea Proxy materials can now be edited with the Material Editor with a click of a button.
  • Better refresh of high resolution production renders
    High resolution images refresh now faster without locking the interface.
  • Optimized Glare
    Glare is now multithreaded and CPU/GPU accelerated, making it a lot faster.
  • Faster interactive scene updates
    Geometry heavy scenes perform faster during interactive rendering and object translation is now a lot faster.
  • More updates
    • Support for Lindalë Skatter™ v2
    • Out-of-core Rendering
    • Multithreaded export
    • HDR Region Render
    • Enhanced Channels
    • Improved interactiveness
    • UI Improvements
