Realism in Real-Time:
The Filament Viewport shows your scene in real-time or near-real time, so you can work smarter and better. See the adjustments to your scene or character populate in the Viewport almost instantly, and enjoy the benefits of higher realism and a cleaner workflow.
Faster Viewport Rendering:
In comparison to other render engines, Filament gives you a higher quality render in a fraction of the time! The Filament update offers the ability to work with older systems that don’t have the latest drivers. Now hobbyists and novice 3D Artists can create without spending a ton on expensive software and equipment.
Physically Based Rendering (PBR):
Physically Based Rendering (PBR) calculates a complex series of interactions between the materials on your 3D assets and the light sources that strike them. Using Reflection and Diffusion, Translucency and Transparency, and complex calculations of Light Scattering and Atmospheric visual properties, PBR gives you astoundingly realistic renders in a fraction of the time of other render engines.
Filament achieves realistic lighting by separating materials and light sources and tracking interactions between them. The end result is a render that looks astounding and highly realistic, especially with off-focus fill lighting and backlighting that makes your characters and scenes look amazing.
