Latest U-Render Adds Realtime Toon Shading and NPR

The U-Render team recently released 2022.4 of the viewport renderer that brings brand-new features for Non-Photorealistic Rendering (NPR), Screen Space Global Illumination (SSGI), Multi-materials, Sharpening filter, an easy-to-use installer, and a free assets library.


The NPR rendering will allow artists to get real-time rendered toon shading right in the viewport. The U-Render real-time NPR features package offers you many functions. Some of those functions are color gradients, specularity, emissive, displacement, and overwrite lines.


Also in the latest release is SSGI or Screen-Space Global Illumination. SSGI helps you create a more authentic looking real-world lighting environment by adding indirect lighting within the screen view area.
