Texture management with apparent materialsThe whole concept of architectural and interior design may change with applying the apparent materials.
Apparent materials are materials whose visual appearance changes depending on the real colour or texture at which they are actually associated and visualized. You can easily compare various solutions for the same building or room layout simply assigning different paint finishes, coatings without changing the 3D model.

Rendering with post-processes
Ray tracing, Global illumination, Radiosity, Shading accuracyThe simple interface of the ARCHLine.XP Render is offering ready-made templates to quickly set up the quality of the final image. The image is rendered with a progressive rendering method which gives you the ability to have an idea of the full image and make decisions based on that even at the initial phase of the rendering. You can also zoom and pane the image while it is still not finished to check the smallest details. If that is necessary, you stop the rendering at any time; you can make fundamental changes and start another render without closing the renderer.
The post-processes are extremely useful as they allow you to make changes on the image even during rendering, so you can fine-tune features like brightness, contrast or many more without having to save the image and open it in an image manipulator tool.
