why Thea

for SketchUp

advanced

Advanced Material Editor

The advanced Thea material editor has been fully integrated in SketchUp, bringing all the advanced and unique features of Thea materials.

The user interface has been designed, following SketchUp’s simplicity and ease of use.

Interactive Rendering

Play Video

Thea for SketchUp allows you to run Interactive Rendering either inside Thea window or directly inside the SketchUp view.

Additionally, with the use of Interactive Region Rendering, you can select and render a region of the SketchUp view, providing ultra-fast feedback for complex scenery.

With the addition of NVIDIA’s and Intel’s artificial intelligence denoisers, it is also possible to make use of denoising while in Interactive Mode.

material editing

Proxy Material Editing

Adding Thea Models in the scene is a very simple task. Editing them in the viewport is even easier and fun to use. With a click of a button, you get access to all the proxy’s materials and modify them.

Proxy Material Editing has the option to revert back to the default materials.

color

Random Color

Random color is a procedural texture that can be used to add variation to your instanced models and create unique effects such as grass, bushes, trees, wooden floor and more.

Proxy Creation

Choose from a collection of smart assets — including high-quality models of plants, people, vehicles and furniture — and give your project real-world context. The all-new Chaos® Cosmos asset browser lets you easily place render-ready 3D content right into your Rhino scene.

Tracing

Adaptive Tracing

Adaptive Tracing is a technique that solves difficult lighting scenarios, such as caustics from point lights, sun pool caustics and diffuse interreflections.

This results in images with a higher dynamic range and lighting effects that were previously impossible.

Relight

Relight Editor

Relight allows you to create infinite images from a single render. When Relight is enabled, every light in the scene can then be modified (intensity, color and status) and create different lighting setups in post production.

Every Relight setup can be saved in the Relight Editor panel as a Snap and then loaded back to the Darkroom for further editing or exported to an image file.

Denoising

AI Denoising

Thea for SketchUp supports both NVIDIA and Intel artificial intelligence Denoisers, offering GPU and CPU accelerated denoising for both interactive and production renderings.

They dramatically reduce the render time, creating high-quality and noise-free images.

Section Cuts

Section cuts are supported in SketchUp. Section cuts allow you to cut through buildings and rooms maintaining the same interior lighting as if the external walls were still in place.

Light Editing Tool

Thea for SketchUp has its own point lights. The Light editing tool not only allows precise light positioning, but it can also give live feedback while rendering interactively in the main window.

Advanced Shadow Catcher

Integrate your models into a scene with a background image, introducing realistic shadows produced by IBL, Sun and Thea Point Lights. It can also produce real reflections on the ground-plane.

Photoshop PSB/PSD Output

Thea for SketchUp supports Photoshop PSB/PSD files (8, 16 and 32bit). This makes it possible to save multi-layer images in large formats.

Resume Rendering

Any rendered image can be saved as an .img.thea file. This file can be reloaded inside Thea Rendering Window at any time allowing the user to resume a rendering.

Live Update

Translating, rotating or scaling objects while in Interactive Rendering mode is faster than ever, especially in complex scenes.
