New Render Engine in Rhino 7 WIP

In Rhino 7’s new modern render engine for designers needing improved realism of a design quickly. The new engine is faster and produces much better results. All the tools run within Rhino allowing for quick design iterations.

This new rendering engine supports:

  • We have replaced Rhino Render with a new, modern, progressive rendering engine. The new engine is faster, produces much better results - especially in scenes with complex lighting, such as interiors - and can run on modern GPUs, including nVidia’s RTX raytracing accelerators.
  • Physically based material: Use layers of textures to create realistic materials. (PBR Materials Documentation) - Forum discussion 31
  • Advanced lighting model with falloff for light objects, advanced skylight and light emitted from other objects create far more realistic scenes.
  • Filmic Tone Mapping: Get darker darks and richer colors through better light exposure. See the image on the right:
  • Denoiser filters available - Render much faster using denoisers to create final images quicker.
  • Refined rendering workflow - Work faster in realtime as the viewport and Rhino Render now share all rendering information, allowing a workflow with predictable results throughout.
  • Image Adjustment for fine tuning the rendering. Adjust colors, contrast and brightness before saving the image.
  • Material Mapping upgrades including double-sided material for one material on one side of a face and a different material on the other side. Also additional mapping coordinate systems.
  • Clipping Planes are now supported.
  • Developer: extendable Post-effects, tone mapping and final image filters.
