Powerful global illumination solution based on photon level simulation added. The tool features new innovations such as baking of prefiltered illumination for extra fast animation renders.
Some examples of the options:
Baking tool prefilters photon illumination. This speeds up rendering dramatically.
Direct and indirect photons can be captured selectively.
Unforeseen photon supersampling feature makes it possible to store high quality, low noise illumination into a relatively small number of photons.
Automatic photon sampling range and brightness estimation at map creation.
Intensity control for caustics like photon effects.
Photon capturing can be turned on/off for each individual object in the scene.
