Powerful & Flexible

Torque 3D includes a powerful rendering system well-suited to photorealistic simulations as well as custom artistic styles. The Torque 3D renderer includes modern shader features including per-pixel dynamic lighting, normal and parallax occlusion mapping, Screen Space Ambient Occlusion, and more.

Torque 3D's post-effects provide advanced rendering functionality to push the visual limits of the scene. Post-effects allow light rays to shine through windows and eyes to glow in dark caverns. With color correction, an artist can create a visual effect such as adding a sepia tone to provide an old-time feel to the scene.
