Emissive Materials in Rhino 7

For product designers and visualization professionals who need to create self-illuminated objects, the new emissive materials in Rhino’s render engine make objects glow and cast light onto other objects.

Emissive Materials can turn any object into a source of light, enabling bloom effects and emulating LEDs. The degree of glow can be fine tuned and enhanced in the Post Effect panels, without the need to render the scene again.

Before and after application of emissive materials can be seen here:
