Now3D is a program for Windows platform written in Visual Basic 6. Now3D (at the beginning called Planets) born in 1997 as application for the planets and stars visualization. Then, thanks to the first success in the 3D Graphic field, I have decided to leave the first idea to concentrating myself towards more difficult subjects.
What's new in version 1.29
The render of the global illumination modalities has been improved
The algorithm for the distributed reflections has been improved
The Blinn material render has been improved.
The speed of the rendering by photons has been increased
The "Irradiance Gradients" algorithm has been implemented, this means that a rendering of the scene elaborated by Irradiance Cache is more smooth and realistic.
New photons visualization in the preview window in wireframe modality (Options/Options/Show Photons=Yes)
Fixed a bug which caused a crash in case of a scene rendering with particular windows rendering size.
Fixed a bug wich caused a wronged Object Light type brightness in case of rendering by Photons.
