Styles Management in IRender nXt

Styles Tab.jpg

The Styles Tab lets you define and save settings that can be used with any model.

Auto Reflection

Auto Reflection helps you more efficiently manage materials. It uses pattern matching in material names to automatically set reflection values.
For example, once you have set reflection values for porcelain in one model, use Auto Reflection. Add porcelain to the list, then add your own preset values for Reflection, Sharpness, Index of Refraction, Metallic, and Bump. Whenever Auto Reflection is checked for any model, your preset values for porcelain will be applied automatically for renderings.
See: Auto Reflection

View Wizard

  • Load and Save Views from any rendered images and models.
  • Specify a different view for rendering, other than the current SketchUp view.
See: View Wizard

Batch Rendering Settings

Batch Rendering is a rendering method that is used to render the model in a stand-alone process (outside of SketchUp).
See: Batch Rendering Settings
