Author is our Integrated Rendering Source - the Lightworks Toolkit solution which provides a broad and well established product suite.
Lightworks Author enables the creation of a wide range of rendering solutions for all types of market and application. This structure means that customers can select the product set that satisfies the exact needs of their market, enabling the creation of powerful and easy-to-use CAD applications for their users. This gives customers the ability to easily introduce additional functionality into their applications when required.
Author also includes a physically based lighting model supported by advanced sky, area, and goniometric light sources, and a range of Global Illumination techniques. Hybrid use of scan-line and ray-trace algorithms and techniques such as analytical anti-aliasing and Interactive Image Regeneration (IIR) make Lightworks the fastest photorealistic-rendering engine available. For a given view, Lightworks can be over 100 times faster than conventional ray-tracer engines for materials or lighting updates. Lightworks has also developed our own High Dynamic Range Images, or HDRI’s, which we provide to our customers for both Image Lighting and scene creation.
All of which combine to offer the highest quality rendering for your users.
Currently supported platforms include Windows 32-bit and 64-bit; Mac: OSX (32- and 64-bit binaries) and Linux (32- and 64-bit binaries).
