LightWorks... Now in our 20th Year, LightWorks has evolved over this time to include the latest in Rendering techniques and algorithms, including the use of Radiosity, Global Illumination, Ambient Occlusion, Final Gather and Ray Tracing. LightWorks has the broadest range of functionality available, and so can cover a wide range of applications in depth providing high quality, fast rendering results every time.
What's new in LightWorks
Version 8.1: Provides LightWorks customers with yet more enhanced rendering functionalities. The main focus of this release is the development of the LightWorks Real-time rendering product, alongside some improvements to EPix output. These include:
Soft shadows and Shadow catching are now both supported by Real-time rendering, using programmable shading;
Programmable shading is now supported for several more LightWorks material shaders, for example multilayer paints and leathers, and this gives real-time support which is closer to the software implementation;
EPix output can now be anti-aliased giving users more defined and accurate rendering.
