Raylectron is a low-cost, simple, fast and powerful SketchUp rendering plugin. Suited for professional artists, hobbyist or anyone who creates 3D designs in SketchUp and wishes to turn their models into photorealistic presentations, and/or to view their models in 3D stereo as if they were real, is all made possible with Raylectron V3.
Raylectron provide the user with three different rendering modes. The material editor in Raylectron is simple, easy and is also integrated within SketchUp. With the editor you can produce different effects, such as reflection (like a mirror), refraction (like glass), transparency, roughness, shininess, bump maps, normal maps and background images. You can also stop the render, save it, reopen it later and resume the render. You can rotate, pan, zoom and modify your materials, lights and grass right from the Raylectron viewer, no need to re-export your model every time you make a change.
You can also create grass and fur in real time. Creating animation couldn’t be simpler now. Animation will give you give you a hands-free tour of a model. Raylectron also utilizes all CPU cores and threads (user selectable) as well as the GPU to greatly improve your render times. It can also use slaves by installing Raylectron on remote computers further increasing the rendering speed. Raylectron is free, providing you do not mind the faint watermark.
