We have created a new Free Add-on for SketchUp - RpImageFilters. This lets you apply Brightness, Contrast, Sharpen and other filter to images from SketchUp.
Of course, you can already do this with many Paint Programs. But it is handy to do it directly from SketchUp. Also, you can apply several filters - such as Brightness, Contrast and Sharpen to the SketchUp image, then modify your model or view and automatically apply the same three filters to the new image.
sketchuppluginreviews.com has posted a review of IRender nXt:
"The nXt Renderer by IRender is a rendering plugin that integrates really well with SketchUp. The learning curve on this plugin is very small and you can start rendering almost immediately after installing the plugin. The render quality is pretty good..."
We have released a new version of IRender nXt - the integrated rendering engine for SketchUp.
The latest version adds these features:
- Panoramic Views - creates a full 360 degree panorama with a single rendering.
- Time required to export models cut by 50%
- Automatic positioning of Camera Lights
- Foreground overlays - images, edge lines, watermarks, pattern masking
- Automatic Clay Rendering Mode
- Automatic support for 2 PT Perspective
