Top artists and designers from every type of industry rely on the Brazil render engine for their most demanding work. Whether showing off the latest designs for a new mobile phone, doing site-accurate visualizations for a new resort-hotel, or generating images of your newest jewelry designs, Brazil can help you create stellar imagery quickly and easily.
Brazil's render engine uses the raytracing method (as opposed to scanline or hardware renderers). Raytracing has the advantage of simulating the way photons actually behave; although raytracing is not limited to realistic solutions.
Rhino supports point, spot, directional, linear, and rectangular light objects with simple properties such as color, hotspot, and shadow casting. Brazil adds about 100 more light properties. The number of light properties can be intimidating, but most of these settings are only needed in a few specific cases.
Toon and NPR
Brazil includes non-photoreal (NPR) effects such as toon shaders.
Depth of Field
Depth-of-field (DOF) simulates the imperfect focusing properties of physical lens-systems such as biological eyes and cameras. DOF adds a measure of realism to a rendering by blurring out-of-focus areas. It can also be used to "mask" areas of the scene such as distant surroundings.
Brazil supports both bitmap and procedural textures. Bitmap textures use images (a grid of colored pixels). Procedural textures, on the other hand, are defined by a mathematical function. Procedural textures do not suffer from resolution or tiling problems, and it is easy to change their behavior. Procedural textures are simulated in the Rhino viewport to make adjustments easy.
High Dynamic Range colors
Brazil is a high-dynamic-range (HDR) engine.
Global Illumination is a feature you will find in most modern rendering platforms including Brazil.
- Brazil for Rhino requires Rhino 4.0 or greater.
Note: Some users have found that Brazil Evaluation doesn't work on Windows XP and 32-bit Rhino. The solution is to download and install this patch from Microsoft.
