SHADERLIGHT: THE APPLE OF ANY DESIGNER’S EYE
Shaderlight for Google SketchUp is now available for the Mac
Suggested photocaption: Mac users can now use Shaderlight to render any 3D model with ease
Mac users won’t be in the shade much longer, thanks to the latest release of Shaderlight – the interactive render plug-in for Google SketchUp
Since the launch of Shaderlight for Windows in October 2010, this leading rendering tool has seen enormous success and become an essential part of image creation for SketchUp users in a range of industries across the globe.
Unlike anything else currently available to Mac users, Shaderlight provides a simple extension to the Google SketchUp workflow, enabling users to create photo-real images from 3D scenes with ease.
A first for Shaderlight, both Windows and Mac versions of the software are now available to purchase for networks, enabling businesses to license a number of machines with a ‘floating license’. This will benefit many of the design colleges, architect practices and design agencies that are already looking to purchase multiple licenses.
Kate Marshall commented: “This latest release now makes Shaderlight rendering available to every SketchUp user. We have a waiting list of enthusiastic Mac users who can’t wait to try the software so we’re excited about seeing the results!”
Shaderlight’s interactive renderer for Google SketchUp allows the user to watch their image ‘develop’ on screen as they continue to refine their SketchUp model.
The basic version of the software can be trialled for free, with no registration required. For the Pro version, a trial is available for 14 days, with a cost of $199 thereafter.
Throughout March 2011, Shaderlight Pro will be available to both PC and Mac users for just $149 when purchased using a valid discount available from www.shaderlight.com

ArtVPS leads the way in the development of photorealistic rendering solutions that generate visually accurate representations of 3D scenes. Our revolutionary flagship rendering technology, Shaderlight, goes beyond conventional rendering software and puts the emphasis on creating high quality images with minimum fuss, pushing the boundaries of 3d visualization with interactive rendering techniques that allow users to see their image develop on screen as they continue to work.
Shaderlight is available as a plug-in for professional class tools from Autodesk and now for Google’s popular and fun SketchUp 3D modelling tool . Shaderlight is set to not only transform the visualisation workflow of 3D artists and designers within conventional markets of product design, architecture, engineering, media and education, but it is set to grow out into consumer markets.
Founded in 2002, ArtVPS quickly became established as the leading innovator of dedicated rendering hardware, developing the first processor designed exclusively to accelerate ray-tracing of 3D data. We are now pioneering the development of rendering software that fully exploits the increased capabilities of today’s processor technology in both professional and consumer 3D.
