Introduction | Specification | Gallery | Ordering

A rendering plugin-set visualizing the nature of light, especially phenomena by which day-light spectrum becomes visible. In particular, Spectrum offers a complex dispersion simulation, light diffraction, and lens aperture diffraction.

Combining the best of both worlds - the art and the optics - this product allows artists to render visually impressive fictions, and engineers to simulate a wide range of real-world effects. The scope of various applications includes photo-realistic renditions, correct single-layer refractions, lens filters, chromatic aberrations, atmospheric effects, holograms, various psychedelic visions and more.
