HyperShot is the easy to use real-time rendering solution for Rhino.

HyperShot delivers revolutionary interactive 3D rendering, with real-time raytraced previews – even your laptop. See instant global illumination and physics-based materials on models come alive, right before your eyes… with stunning photographic results.

HyperShot requires no lighting, GI or studio set-up and no previous rendering knowledge is necessary.



Using the Rhino plug-in is simplicity itself.
Working in rendered mode, simply drag and drop HyperShot materials onto your Rhino model parts then pick an environment image and a backplate image and hit the render button.



Once inside the HyperShot environment your model appears in real-time raytraced preview and you can make further adjustments to materials, camera view, environment and backplate if necessary.

Renderings can be saved in JPEG, TIFF or EXR format.
