Neon - : Free real-time viewport raytracing in Rhino 5

Welcome to Neon!


Neon™ is a free, fully raytraced viewport plug-in for Rhino 5.  Developed in collaboration with Caustic Professional, Neon adds a new viewport mode called "Raytraced with Neon" - there's almost no other UI - it just works.

Neon helps a designer to quickly evaluate and establish the form, color, texture, lighting, and material requirements of object components within a scene, very early on.


Best of all, Neon is free for registered users of Rhino 5!


Full support for Rhino 5 rendering tools

Neon supports all Rhino 5 rendering features - including the sun, skylight, groundplane, standard materials, environments and most procedural textures.

Neon is a fully working viewport mode. You can edit your model just like any other mode and Neon keeps up. It supports in-command previews (like BlendSrf), real time dragging and many other commands.


Support for Brazil 2.0 Advanced Rendering

In addition, Neon supports many Brazil settings if Brazil 2.0 Service Release 2 (or later) is installed on your computer. This includes most Brazil materials, the GI environment, most Luma server settings, Depth of Field - along with a raft of other bits and pieces. More is coming soon!


System Requirements

Neon works best on powerful hardware, but it's usable on most modern mid-range computers - even laptops. It doesn't require a powerful video card. We recommend 64-bit Rhino 5.0 with at least 4Gb of RAM and an I7 processor - preferably Sandybridge/IvyBridge.

Windows Vista, Windows 7 or 8 is required. It does not work on Rhino 4.0, nor Windows XP.

Neon also supports the Series 2 raytracing accelerator cards from Caustic Professional.
