Features

State of the art rendering technology
  • Real-time physically accurate Global Illumination
  • Super-fast performance using Intel Embree ray-tracing kernels
  • Always achieves the best quality, no need to tweak esoteric rendering parameters
  • Different unbiased real-time algorithms to handle all possible lighting configurations: Bidirectional Path Tracing, Direct Lighting, Path Tracing
  • Metropolis Sampling
  • Real-time Ambient Occlusion
  • Takes advantage of the whole system RAM – no GPU memory limitation – Can render scenes with hundreds of million of triangles and multiple GB of textures
Interface
  • FluidRay RT is a standalone rendering application, you can use it together with any 3d modeling software
  • Real-Time editing of materials, lights and rendering parameters is done in an super easy WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) interface
  • Extensive library of materials, models and lights supporting Drag&Drop
  • Import scenes, objects and materials directly from your 3D modeling software. Supported formats include: Alias Wavefront (.obj), SketchUp (*.skp)†, Rhino OpenNurbs (*.3dm), Collada (*.dae), FBX (*.fbx) , 3DS (*.3ds, *.ase), DirectX (.X), Stanford PLY (*.ply).
Full Spectral Rendering
  • Accurately simulates effects like dispersion and thin film interfaces
  • Rendering parameters, such as reflection, transmission or light emission, can be specified with an RGB color or on a per wavelength basis
Materials
  • Many different types of materials such as metal, matte, glass, frosted glass, plastic, mirror, etc.
  • Every material is highly tweakable through an extensive set of parameters
  • Arbitrary materials can be made from scratch using Open Shading Language (OSL)††
  • Every material property can vary over the surfaces
  • Procedural textures and materials
  • Bump Mapping and Normal Mapping
  • Scalable texture system, texture data can occupy multiple gigabytes
Volume Rendering
  • Full unbiased volumetrics
  • Multiple scatterings
  • Accurately simulates effect like fog, smoke, halos and god-rays
  • Real-time editing of participating media
  • Physically accurate sub-surface scattering (SSS)
  • Homogeneous media
  • Infinite heterogeneous media through Dreamworks’ OpenVDB
  • Multiple phase functions
  • Atmospheric scattering
  • Media can be customized using Open Shading Language (OSL)††
Camera
  • Thin lens system, with depth of field
Lights
  • Support for an arbitrary number of lights
  • Every surface can emit light
  • Photometric(IES) light profiles
  • Environment lights
  • Arbitrary lights can be made from scratch using Open Shading Language (OSL)††
Environment lights
