+ A link to it, is lying on my desktop for quite some time,..... Although, we have put a news about it in our regular feature of CGnews Tid-bits , we think it need a little more attention. Well, IRender by Render Plus systems is Ray Tracing rendering system for Google’s SketchUp, and is based on AccuRender ( IQ: uses AccuRender rendering engine to create renderings). The reason which makes it note-worthy is that; IRender rendering solution gets fully integrated into SketchUp and all the IRender settings are saved automatically in your SketchUp model. This mean user can switch to other high-end application without a need to specify lights, reflections, glow etc. again. Besides, giving advantage of Fully integrated into SketchUp, IRender offers other great features such as:
- It creates custom lamp fixtures.
- Create lamp component (bulb) of any wattage and beam angle.
- Create reflective materials easily.
- Create target lights on IRender lamps.
- Can create reflective mirror.
- Can render individual object in a 3d scene.
IRender plus is extended version of IRender with more advance features such as Radiosity, huge component library (500 fractal plants), convert AccuRender materials to SketchUp material and can create walkthrough animation of your SketchUp 3d Scene. Although the market of external rendering system for SketchUp is hoting up and big-wigs like both VRay & Maxwell render are now released for SketchUP, the IRender still remains worth a look......So guys have a look and give it a shot by downloading a fully functional 30 day Trial Version. Documentation as well as quick start guide is also available on Render plus website.
