British developer LightWork Design on Wednesday released
LightWorks 7.5, the latest version of its 3D rendering engine for use by the developers of 3D graphics software. Changes in this upgrade include improvements to LightWorks Real-time, the API that enables access to hardware rendering on video cards supporting OpenGL Shading Language or Cg, as well as enhancements in the Global Illumination add-on, making it easier to create images using radiosity.
In addition, LightWorks 7.5 features new components for developing user interfaces, including interactive light editing and new shader editors, as well as new shaders for the Architectural and Industrial Toolboxes and cross-platform plug-in shaders for upgrading applications without recompiling them. System requirements and pricing were not provided.
