This update has received almost all the innovations of the native version 2.3.0 and improved compatibility with mobile devices and iPads.
Light Engine announced Light Tracer Render 2.3.2 – an update to the web version of the 3D rendering software and physically-based GPU renderer.
The update received almost all the innovations of the native version 2.3.0, including the online PBR material library and libraries of HDR studio lights and environment maps, improved tone mapping and color correction, advanced animation capabilities, import models from PLY format as well as models with vertex colors ("poly-painted"), and more.
This version can be used to sketch projects directly on a tablet or other mobile device, with high-quality rendering done later on a more powerful workstation. The scene can be published privately and shared by link with friends or colleagues to get their feedback.
Light Tracer offers the ability to render directly on the user's device and not on the cloud server, so the results remain only on the personal device. This guarantees data privacy and high rendering responsiveness. Also, there is no load on the internet channel and no need to maintain expensive GPU cloud servers. This allows the basic version of Light Tracer for Web to remain completely free without restrictions on rendering time, the number of scenes, and the size of the output images.
In the latest version, some production features are disabled that are mainly used in a professional environment. You can see the difference between versions here.
The company can now say that Light Tracer works almost everywhere: you can run it on Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Safari, Opera, and other browsers. The mobile version of Safari is also supported, so Light Tracer can even be used on the iPad. It can even run on phones, but don't expect a great user experience.
The new version got a significant improvement for touch screen and touchpad support, so you don't have to connect external control devices.
You can use Light Tracer for free in the web version or buy it for $9/month or $99 to have it forever.
