Lambda Research Adds Improved Photorealistic Rendering Capability To TracePro

Lambda Research Corporation, the leading designer and publisher of illumination and optical design software, introduces improved photorealistic rendering with the latest release of its flagship product, TracePro®. The photorealistic rendering capability uses photon mapping to render scenes, sources, lightpipes, and instrument panels. Render high-fidelity photorealistic images showing the lit appearance of optical and illumination systems, and their affected surroundings.

With ten times faster processing, TracePro’s photorealistic rendering capability uses a two-pass algorithm that simulates light from user-defined sources and ambient light settings to produce a rendered scene. The first pass generates a photon map for use in the second pass. In the second pass, rays are traced in reverse and the photon map is used to calculate the relative luminance of every pixel in the rendered image. After the rendering is completed, the user can control the contrast and brightness as needed.

TracePro is award-winning opto-mechanical software used for design, analysis, and optimization of optical and illumination systems. With its intuitive CAD interface and powerful features like 2D/3D interactive optimizers, TracePro offers a sophisticated and powerful optical design environment combined with a short learning curve to accelerate product time-to-market.
