True to its dynamic development, Blender, one of the best animation suites, has today a new version that we can download from their official websites.
Version 2.67 program improvement in various aspects as always, although, along with new material shaders to simulate effects such as “subsurface scattering”, incorporates a new experimental rendering mode which determines the contours or shape of the objects: Freestyle. This mode is called within “NRPs” or “Rendered in photorealistic”
Freestyle is a new non-photorealistic (NPR) rendering engine integrated into Blender. Originally developed as a stand-alone program in an academic research project, Freestyle provides artists with a new tool set for generating 2D line drawing out of a given 3D scene prepared with Blender.(Blender.org)
As always, I leave the home screen (Splash Screen) that mark this new version, in this case the dedicated mode rendering “FreeStyle”.
Subsurface scattering (or SSS) is a mechanism of light transport in which light penetrates the surface of a translucent object, isscattered by interacting with the material, and exits the surface at a different point.(W)
