Today I am pleased to announce the release of our newest add-in: CloudRender™ for Autodesk® Revit® Architecture 2011. The CloudRender add-in enables users to render faster directly from Revit using the power of cloud computing while continuing to model in Revit. Instead of tying up your local computer, CloudRender off-loads intensive rendering to our high performance systems. There is no loss of quality because Revit scenes render with mental ray® (the same photorealistic rendering engine found in Revit). CloudRender maintains the same camera view, entourage, custom materials and families, lighting, sun, sky, and transparency options (only faster!)
So how does it work?
1. Download and install add-in
2. Select render settings
3. Preview, checkout, and submit to cloud
4. Continue to work in Revit
This is a cloud service. All previews, done quickly on the cloud without tying up Revit, are free and unlimited. Pricing for final renders is upfront and automatically calculated based on the detail of your model and the size of the final image.
