Thea Render 1.3.08 Build 1165
Create, edit and render 3D objects
Needless to say that you might want to check system requirements before rushing to unleash the artist in you. On the other hand, the application is carefully optimized and requirements are mostly based on the complexity of your projects.
The application is mostly oriented towards visualization and rendering, but it also comes equipped with a large variety of objects you can insert, textures, materials and a lot more editing tools. In terms of compatibility, you can insert application specific objects, as well as OBJ, 3DS and SIA files.
Large variety of customization options
Customization plays an important role in the application's set of features. A side panel equipped with multiple tabs like material lab, environment, biased, unbiased, interactive, animation and instancing make sure every object is thoroughly manipulated.
An abundance of sliders and custom values can be managed in order to pick just the right material, lighting position or texture. What's more, size and type can be adjusted by specifying values, both for the object itself, as well as texture positioning.
Generate a high-quality preview
You can create multiple layers for better management of individual objects. Additionally, selection becomes easier thanks to the implemented object explorer. More options become available through the dedicated context menu, with editing and visualizing options at your fingertips.
At some point during the creation process, you most likely want to view a highly detailed representation of your object or scene. This is possible with the integrated renderer, with several algorithms available to mimic various environments. The result is visually appealing, generated quickly, and you can also save an image on your computer.
A few last words
To sum it up, Thea Render manages to live up to expectations and is sure to offer enthusiasts a fun, interactive and powerful playground for creating and analysis of 3D objects. Although abundant in resources and available materials, the clever design gets you quickly up and running and has you experimenting with various textures, objects and lighting effects.
