Decals can be attached on top of other surface styles to produce a variety of rendering effects, such as labels on objects, graffiti on walls, partially reflective surfaces, masked transparencies, and more.

State of the art shaders are used to render surfaces and other effects. A surface style is defined by up to four layers of shaders, which produce color, reflections, transparency, and bump effects

Procedural and pre-captured textures are offered and can be mapped onto the surfaces of objects using five different mapping methods: flat, cubic, cylindrical, spherical, or parametric, which applies to NURBS surfaces.

Imager is a utility which is incorporated in the program and is also available independently, can be used to batch render sequences of images whose viewing and rendering parameters are previously set and saved.

Trees, which have been precaptured, can be included in renderings with particular ease.

form·Z RenderZone is the version of form·Z that includes photorealistic rendering based on the LightWorks® rendering engine.

Key Features:

Seven levels of rendering flat, Gouraud, Phong, preview z-buffer, full z-buffer, preview raytrace, and full raytrace.

Transparencies, reflections, and refractions can be applied at the full z-buffer and the full raytrace levels

Cubic and spherical environment mapping, bumps, backgrounds that include alpha channel support, and depth effects can be applied starting with the preview z-buffer level. Blur is an example of a depth effect that

Libraries with predefined materials are included and can be easily extended and customized by users. Images can be
rendered and saved in a variety of user controlled sizes and resolutions, to a maximum of 16,000 x 16,000 pixels.
