Description

Shade/Shape generates 3D models from your 2D graphical and picture elements using RE:Vision's powerful and proprietary shading-from-shape technology. The models are then lit and rendered in true 3D! Add further detailing to your 3D models by applying reflection and bump maps.

Note: Shade/Shape also comes with a companion plugin, Shade Normals, which uses the shading techniques in Shade/Shape to shade the normals produced by a 3D system or even Shade/Shape itself.

Shade / Shape render nodes permit you to execute background render tasks on one or more machines on your network.
