E-on Software Ships LumenRT Review Release 1.2!
NEW AUTO-SCALE LIGHTING FEATURE IMPROVES LARGE MODEL PROCESSING PERFORMANCE
July 12, 2011. Beaverton, Oregon: e-on software the leader in 3D sky, light and nature technologies, today announced the availability of a new update for LumenRT Review for SketchUp, the company's revolutionary new real-time 3D product for the visualization of architectural projects. The new release adds the ability to process larger models such as large structures and cities with greater speed.
The auto-scale lighting feature can improve performance by 30% to 300% depending on the size of the model with a resulting tradeoff of lower lighting quality. The new build also adds several quality and reliability enhancements to improve overall performance and stability. As an example, new optimizations in Release 1.2 can lead to a 14x gain on pre-processing time!
LumenRT users may download this important new release for free, directly from e-on's website.
