We are pleased to announce the release of Thea Render version 3. This release brings a lot of new features as well as workflow enhancements and speed improvements in several areas.
Thea for SketchUp has been updated with new features and workflow enhancements too. Some of them are:
Local Proxy Material Editing
Thea Proxy materials can now be edited with the Material Editor with a click of a button.
Better refresh of high resolution production renders
High resolution images refresh now faster without locking the interface.
Glare is now multithreaded and CPU/GPU accelerated, making it a lot times faster.
Faster interactive scene updates
Geometry heavy scenes perform faster during interactive rendering and object translation is now a lot faster.
Thea for Rhino has also been updated with new features and workflow enhancements. Some of them are:
Render History in Darkroom
A new panel has been added to the Thea Darkroom with a list all the rendered images with the option to revisit and modify previous renders.
Unified Content Browser
Material, Models and Asset Managements are now all under one unified Content Browser.
It is possible to increase the amount of samples per pixel and resume a finished render.
Enhanced Region Render
Region Render is now blended with the whole image and tone mapping operations affect the whole image. On top of that, resume rendering is also supported by region renders.
