I am happy to announce that we have released a new version of Thea for SketchUp.
The major addition in the plugin is an integrated material editor which lets you understand in a blink of an eye even very advanced Thea materials. Access to our online materials repository directly from Thea Browser is also a valuable feature. Most of the user interface has been redesigned and allow a customization of a layout.
In terms of rendering engines, the major effort was concentrated on Presto, which is fully spectral now and evaluates complex scenes with multiple light sources more efficiently.
We have also introduced our own and Nvidia Optix denoiser. They can help you get the desired rendering output much faster.
For a detailed list of features please check the following forum post and visit a dedicated Thea for SketchUp page.
