Lagoa’s MultiOpticsTM Renderer

Unique to Lagoa is MultiOptics, the world’s first photorealistic interactive 3D renderer for the cloud. Astonishingly fast, it is an advanced progressive path tracer, easily handling the most complex scenes even with global illumination, sub surface scattering and volumetrics. We model every scene using real world materials, lights and cameras, so whether you render leather, plastics, hair, gems, cars, metals, Lagoa MultiOptics will deliver interactive photorealistic renders that you can co-edit with your team in real-time.
