Bella is a state of the art spectral renderer, built from the ground up to achieve unmatched speed and realism.
By adhering to a physics-based approach, it not only produces truly photographic images, but does so with a predictability that both simplifies use, and enhances productivity.
The Bella for Rhino plugin brings this directly into Rhino 6, 7, or 8, on Windows or MacOS (on Intel or Apple Silicon). There are very few new settings to learn, as the plugin automatically translates Rhino's render settings, materials, environments, and so forth. Bella materials, textures, and camera settings are seamlessly integrated, as well. For all version release notes, please see here.
The plugin supports rendering directly in Rhino viewports, in the Rhino render window, or externally in the dedicated Bella GUI application (which is bundled with the plugin installation). On MacOS, Bella GUI natively supports Apple Silicon, allowing to render final images at the full speed of your hardware, even if you use the plugin on Rhino 7 running on Rosetta.
Bella's customer-first licensing stands out from the rest: all licenses are floating & perpetual, and implemented using a simple text file, with no subscription, no contacting remote servers, no failures.
Note: with no license, Bella will run in demo mode (720p max. resolution, small watermark, resume render disabled) with no time limit.
