… when imagination becomes reality.
Present your Rhino® models in their best light
Next generation rendering technology
Flamingo® nXt was developed for designers. You don’t need to be a CG professional to quickly present your Rhino model in the best light.
Results in a few clicks and a few minutes
In Rhino, just click Render to try the nXt defaults, or spend a few minutes to select a lighting scenario and add some materials before you click Render.
Flamingo nXt allows you to easily create stunning, life-like images in Rhino.
Easy to Use
With nXt you don’t need to be a professional renderer to get realistic results quickly. You provide materials and lighting and press the Render button. nXt provides the simulation. Unlike many rendering products, there are very few settings to worry about or understand.
nXt produces realistic results by simulating light transport in your model. Indirect lighting as well as complex reflection and refraction can be easily incorporated into the simulation. Interior and exterior daylight simulations, HDR image-based lighting, and many other techniques are all handled easily, with minimal configuration requirements.
nXt uses efficient, modern ray-casting technology to produce results as quickly as possible. All processor cores are automatically utilized in parallel. Images are continually refined and improved over time.
