LightWorks Unveils Exciting New Technology Introduction of Non-photorealistic Rendering and Interactive Rendering of Complex Models

SHEFFIELD, United Kingdom--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 23, 2002--LightWork Design, the world's leading supplier of quality advanced computer graphics software for rendering, simulation and verification solutions, recently unveiled two exciting new product additions to LightWorks® - the industry's fastest rendering engine - LightWorks® Sketch and LightWorks® Real-time Plus.

To read the complete press releases:

LightWorks® Sketch

LightWorks® Sketch is a unique technology for software developers who wish to provide their users with the ability to instantly create impressionistic and stylised design renderings. Working directly from the 3D model, LightWorks® Sketch enables non-photorealistic images and hand-drawn images to be created at any stage of the design process. A wide selection of styles is available, ranging from rough pencil sketches to watercolour paintings. LightWorks® Sketch is 3D based therefore images can very quickly be re-rendered from any viewpoint, without having to use other tools.

Woll Newall, LightWorks® Product Manager, commented, "Our research suggests that many people feel reluctant to make comments about a design which has hard and definite lines because it tends to look too finished. However, if the lines are drawn in a sketchy style, they are more likely to discuss the design and how it might be changed to suit them. LightWorks® Sketch provides designers with the unique opportunity to create designs in the way that their customers prefer."

LightWorks® Real-time Plus

LightWorks® Real-time Plus helps software developers improve their users' interactive experience. Previously, CAD systems only provided interactive navigation within simple models. Now, LightWorks® Real-time Plus gives software developers the opportunity to create applications that can render large and complex models in real time.

Software developers will be able to offer the following benefits to their users:

  • Interactive visualization and review of models by all types of CAD user;
  • Interactive and smooth real time navigation of large and complex 3D models;
  • No investment in expensive hardware required.

LightWorks® Real-time Plus works in conjunction with LightWorks® Real-time to produce applications with the highest possible quality of interactive rendering. LightWorks® Real-time Plus is powered by the NavisWorks engine.
