A host of new features for architects and designers means Shaderlight Pro users can now render animations directly in Google SketchUp. The animation tool appears as a new button on the Shaderlight toolbar, giving access to a simple interface that enables renders of the SketchUp scene as a sequence of photoreal images for animation. The new Pro version will also render animations created using SUanimate and Keyframe Animation plugins. Shaderlight Pro v2 also hosts the unique new Replace Me function.
Users can now substitute complex models – people and trees, for example – with simple billboard models. This way, Shaderlight is able to render the fill 3D model without slowing the software down. Trial Shaderlight Pro v2 now for free for 14 days. It's never been easier to transform your SketchUp model in to a photorealistic render.
