Rendering: Fast Feedback

Rhino quickly creates beautiful images for your presentations. Whether you are an architect, designer, engineer, or artist, Rendering in Rhino brings your models to life. With its extensive library of materials, advanced lighting, and camera controls, Rhino Render helps you present your creative vision, getting “buy-in” from clients, customers, collaborators, or the public at large…all without needing a PhD.

Updated Cycles Render Engine

  • Apple Metal support, making Cycles much faster than V7 on Mac.
  • Improved speed on NVIDIA cards.
  • Faster on AMD GPUs using AMD HIP.

Rhino Render works as a real-time raytraced display mode, so you get fast feedback on your material, texture, and lighting choices. For “final” renders, work in a dedicated rendering window with access to post effects like fog, glare, and depth-of-field.

Improved Rendering UI

In Rhino 8, we’ve made the User Interface for Rendering, Materials, Textures, and Environments more compact, efficient, and interactive:

  • Better Management and editing at the same time.

  • Faster and Smoother interface responsiveness.

  • Less Scrolling around the UI without loss of legibility.

  • Previews have much better fine-grained size controls.

  • Sliders where there were once edit boxes.

  • Environment Previews with clear panoramas.

  • Cross-platform, unified experience on Windows and Mac .
