Image Formats

Save the rendering in any of the following file formats:

  • JPEG - with and without comments - JPG is a compressed image - some loss of image quality due to compression can be expected.
JPG with comments - will save the render settings used to create the rendering. The render settings can be recalled later and used to create another rendering with the same settings. See: IRender More Tab
Additionally, the SketchUp view can be restored from the .JPG image. See: View Wizard .
  • PNG - a compressed image with no loss of quality. Transparent PNG saves the image with a transparent background.
  • nxtImage - Native nXt Image includes lighting intensities and can be used with the nXt Image Editor to balance lighting and make other adjustments to the rendering.
  • HDRi - saves the rendered image for use in high-end imaging programs, or to be used as a HDRi background or HDRi sky.
  • EXR - the image is stored in the OpenEXR Image Format.
