Flamingo nXt 5 allows you to easily create stunning, life-like images in Rhino. It brings better quality and ease of use above previous Flamingo versions.
Flamingo nXt is compatible with Rhino 5 or 6 for Windows.
With Flamingo nXt you don't need to be a professional renderer to get realistic results quickly. You provide materials and lighting and press the Render button. Flamingo nXt provides the simulation. Unlike many rendering products, there are very few settings to worry about or understand.
New in nXt
- Progressive multi-pass technology
- Easy lighting presets
- More advanced material definitions
- Improved HDRI lighting environments support
- Tagging objects as lights
- Caustics improved
- Block object instancing
- Lighting channels
- Improved tree model
- Tone operator with histogram balance
- Render farm support
Physically-BasedFlamingo nXt produces realistic results by simulating light transport in your model. Indirect lighting, as well as complex reflection and refraction, can be easily incorporated into the simulation. Interior and exterior daylight simulations, HDR image-based lighting, and many other techniques are all handled easily, with minimal configuration requirements.
Flamingo nXt uses efficient, modern ray-casting technology to produce results as quickly as possible. All processor cores are automatically utilized in parallel. Images are continually refined and improved over time.

* Flamingo will run as a 32-bit process when running in Rhino 5 for on any operating system (this limits Flamingo to 2GB of memory). To take full advantage of 64-bit operating systems, Rhino 5.0 64-bit is required
- 1 GB RAM or more is recommended.
- Hardware requirements match Rhinos's hardware requirements.
- Multiple CPU cores will accelerate renderings are recommended.
- Video card speed does not affect Flamingo NXT.
- Virtualization systems such as VMWare and Parallels are supported. Running Macintosch hardware with Bootcamp and one of the - Operating systems above is supported.
