updated 02:35 pm EDT, Fri October 3, 2008

LightWorks 7 9 update

LightWorks Design has released the latest version of its rendering engine, LightWorks 7.9. The new version includes an ambient occlusion feature, said to further enhance the intelligent addition of ambient lighting to models for improved depth and realism. The specular final gather feature has been refined as well, in order to function faster when working with smoother surfaces.

New reflectance shaders include glossy, blurred, and frosted glass, meant for creating glossy plastics, brushed metals, car paints and other surfaces. The program further supports extension of effects into real-time rendering, using external CgFX materials. Pricing is available from LightWorks Design.
