IRender New Features
IRender nXt has added several new features:
The IRender lights now use the width of the lamp bulb to create softer shadows.
- See: Soft Shadows
- The default field angle for spotlights has been changed to 180 degrees. This seems to give better results.
- The default glass type has been changed from thin (single face per pane) to thick (two faces per pane). If you are using thin glass you will want to edit the material and mark it as thin.
You can save your rendered image with a transparent background to make it easy to use an a alpha transparent Image in SketchUp or in a paint program.
