Flamingo nXt

Flamingo nXt was developed for designers. You don’t need to be a CG professional to quickly present your Rhino model in the best light.

  • Open your model with Rhino. Flamingo nXt runs completely inside of Rhino.
  • With one click, select the lighting scheme that best suits your scene.
  • Drag and drop materials from nXt’s extensive library.
  • Set the view that you would like to render.
  • Rendering is one click in Rhino. There is no need to export or learn another program.
  • In a few seconds the first pass will tell you if everything is set the way you like.
  • Continue rendering until all the subtle effects are cooked in. Often less than 30 minutes on an ordinary laptop.

  • Easy to Use
    With nXt you don’t need to be a professional renderer to get realistic results quickly. You provide materials and lighting and press the Render button. nXt provides the simulation. Unlike many rendering products, there are very few settings to worry about or understand.

    Physically-Based
    nXt produces realistic results by simulating light transport in your model. Indirect lighting as well as complex reflection and refraction can be easily incorporated into the simulation. Interior and exterior daylight simulations, HDR image-based lighting, and many other techniques are all handled easily, with minimal configuration requirements.

    Fast
    nXt uses efficient, modern ray-casting technology to produce results as quickly as possible. All processor cores are automatically utilized in parallel. Images are continually refined and improved over time.
