Lambda Research, a designer and publisher of illumination and optical design software, has released the latest version of its TracePro software, TracePro v7.8.
Updated features in the new version include a final version of the Lighting Toolkit, new Path Sort Filtering, and new settings for all True Color plots. The Lighting Toolkit grants TracePro users the ability to analyse automotive lighting systems, including headlights/headlamps; tail, warning, and marker lamps; as well as outdoor and indoor luminaires. The Lighting Toolkit provides visualisation tools and regulation tables to certify that simulated results meet the requirements of the lighting and automotive standards, and provides pass/fail criteria for ECE, SAE, IESNA, and FMVSS regulations.
The Path Sort Filtering in TracePro v7.8 allows users to apply a Boolean filter to specify the exact ray paths they wish to display and analyse. Users can then select the exact ray path or paths they wish to investigate by building filters, surface by surface. Lastly, all True Color plots in TracePro now have settings for brightness, contrast, and gamma, including irradiance/illuminance, 3D irradiance/illuminance, and Luminance Maps.
