Thea Render 1.1


Recommended Posts

Wlasnie pojawila sie nowa wersja renderera Thea oznaczona numerkiem 1.1

Z najciekawszych rzeczy mamy przyspieszenie samego silnika prawiw 2krotnie oraz integracje z Colimo.


W chwili obecnej najnowsza wersja dostepna jest wylacznie dla licencjonowanych userow lecz dla wszystkich powinna byc dostepna w ciagu paru najblizszych dni.

  • Material editor parameter panels can now be disabled completely by control+clicking on the active panel icon. (UI)
  • Integrated support for large previews (256x256) for material and texture editors (high resolution). (UI)
  • Recursive rebuilding of all previews in browsers. (UI)
