McNeel Flamingo

Next generation rendering technology

Flamingo nXt™ brings the raytrace and radiosity rendering inside Rhino. This plug-in provides the ability to photometrically accurate images with reflections, refraction, diffusion, translucency, transparency, color bleeding, hard and soft shadows, depth of field, depth attenuation, and indirect lighting. It also allows users to drag and drop from an extensive material library with user controllable properties including defuse color, reflections, refraction, translucency, transparency, depth attenuation, bitmap textures with tiling and masking, procedural 2-D and 3-D materials, ClearFinish™, and angular blend. Lighting options include directional, point, spot, linear, rectangular, and goniometric lights, sun, ground, sky, and global illumination using a light dome or an HDR image.
