ArchiCAD 18 New Features — Rendering

 
May 12th, 2014 by Sanjay Gangal

The integration of CineRender, MAXON’s world-class CINEMA 4D rendering engine into ArchiCAD 18, brings high quality, photo-realistic rendering images closer to a much wider range of designers. ArchiCAD 18 is the only BIM application that provides not only high-end, professional image quality thanks to the Cinema 4D rendering engine, but a very smooth workflow and an excellent user experience as well.

One-button “photo-shot” rendering can lead to the same high-quality results with the same ease as with tweaking numerous sliders and parameters, allowing novice users to create professional renderings. Professional users can use all the advanced rendering settings of ArchiCAD, or continue the project visualization in MAXON Cinema 4D.

ArchiCAD 18 provides a wide range of professional surface material catalogs right out of the box. Users with an active subscription license may download additional surface materials free of charge from the BIMcomponents.com portal. The entire surface material set of MAXON’s Cinema 4D is also available. ArchiCAD 18 provides brand new lamp objects enhanced with new light settings: parallel light, area light and window light sources can be applied.

The standard, IES Light format can also be assigned to ArchiCAD’s lamp objects, ensuring manufacturer-specific photometric distribution for lighting. ArchiCAD’s live rendering preview and background processor support make the rendering workflow a smooth, uninterrupted process.
