What our users are saying

"Shaderlight offers the students one more opportunity to express their finished design concept, and also exposes them to one more career option: that of a professional renderer. The degree of realism that can be achieved is dramatically heightened by Shaderlight.  This photorealism provide a great wow factor for the students; When they see their designs come to life, first in SketchUp then in Shaderlight it is very satisfying to behold."

Steve Vasilion, Director of Architecure at The Forge Prairie Group and student mentor

"I have spoken to many colleges about the benefits of Shaderlight, one of which is now considering introducing SketchUp to courses so that Shaderlight can be taught!  Shaderlight is going to truly affect the educational market as most students are looking for easy render solutions to bring their designs to another level."
