  • If users want to use all high-end features then they should choose IRender nXt. If users want to create hi-res images from SketchUp models and don’t want to learn advanced rendering features like depth of field, special reflection setting, special transparency settings they have to choose ArielVision.          
  • If users use SketchUp and Rendering to support their business then IRender nXt are going to be budget friendly. Users use this ArielVision tool at very cheap cost. 

Integrated into SketchUp

  • Users can use SketchUp materials and textures automatically. 
  • It has a good feature of photorealistic rendering engine. 
  • It has indirect lightning for subtle, realistic shadows. 
  • ArielVision has auto bump mapping for SketchUp textures. 
  • It also has high quality reflections.  
  • Users can refract for thick glass and transparent objects.  
  • Users have to use Light Wizard for creating many standard lights and lamps, spot lights. 
  • Readers also use SketchUp sun, sky, and background colors.

ArielVision get all information about rendering from SketchUp materials. All the materials like colors, transparency, and textures can be set normally in SketchUp and it is also used for rendering. Users can assign the reflection and glow settings by right clicking on any type of surface. ArielVision find accurate materials for users automatically.

By using ArielVision users are able to render the scene as their wish. Rendering passes use lighting sample from the sun, sky, lights for making smoother shadows and more realistic effects. While learning a limit of 40 passes can be used. After a particular time, users are able to increase the number of passes.

Users can render at their desired resolution. Basically, higher resolution and higher rendering process take much more time per rendering pass and to complete rendering. Users also can use ArielVision at a medium resolution so that users can review the model SketchUp models quickly and also able to increase the resolution.

ArielVision are able to define material properties and the rendering setting inside the SketchUp and users are also able to save that in SketchUp model. Users just have to click one button for creating and viewing the rendering.
