Hyperlight 2
Subtle light variations can be the difference between a natural looking visualization and an artificial one. The colors of materials rely heavily on the way light bounces between surfaces. The new Hyperlight 2 calculates the light on surfaces with detailed accuracy.

Speedray Reflections
Materials are brought to life with realistic reflections. Speedray™ Reflections renders reflections with high efficiency to achieve a believable look to glass, water, marble, wood and metal surfaces. Now you can massively improve your image quality.

Glass is commonly used in architecture and design visualizations. PureGlass technology offers you a selection of transparent, translucent and frosted glass that looks more compelling and realistic than ever.
