Interiors Professional's new renderer helps you create even more realistic designs and animations adding reflections as well as shadows. You are now spoilt for choice with a selection of four different renderers. The interactive renderer for speed when laying out your designs. The preview renderer for previewing lighting and shadows. The Microspot renderer which has variable resolution for the images and shadows and finally the new raytrace renderer, helping you take your designs to a whole new level, its superb reflections creating breath-taking images and movies.
The professional version has 14 modeling tools and four extra palettes. The modeling tools include 6 primitive shapes, cube, sphere, cone, pyramid, cylinder and regular polygon and four more complex tools for pipes, torroids, lathed shapes and irregular polygons. The other tools include a 3D text tool and an edit path tool which enables coils and threads to be modeled. The four extra palettes include a section palette for adjusting the section of lathed objects, polygons and many more, and a construct palette to control Boolean operations.
Both Interiors and Interiors professional now also allow you to import Google SketchUp files and that combined with 3DS import, built in modeling and editing of library items you will never be short of realistic furniture items and accessories for use in your designs.
