RhinoAir 7th public build, etc.

The seventh public build of RhinoAir, a new plug-in for rendering with Air from Rhino 4, is now available. What's new:

  • Subdivision surfaces: new option to render a polygon mesh as a Catmull-Clark subdivision surface (SDS)
  • Blobbies: new option to render a point cloud as a blobby implicit surface
  • Volume rendering: new option to render a point cloud as a volume primitive
  • Textured area lights
  • Render to an image file and the framebuffer simultaneously
  • New depth output channel
  • Internal changes to work properly with changes in Rhino 4 SR 4

Clement Greiner has released a companion BakeRender tool for baking texture maps with RhinoAir and BakeAir (with examples).
