ARTVPS, the team behind Shaderlight, have announced the end of support for their software with the release of the following statement:
“It is with real regret that we must announce that due to circumstances entirely beyond our control Shaderlight Ltd. will cease to trade with effect from the 15th December 2021.
Unfortunately this means that you will not be able to purchase new licences or upgrades after this time. Customers with existing licenses will be able to continue rendering with Shaderlight however we are no longer able to offer technical support at any level . In addition, the current version of Shaderlight will not be updated to work with the next SketchUp version whenever that is released.
We’d like to apologise for any inconvenience caused to you and you customers and on behalf of the entire team here, we’d like to thank you for your support over the last 12 years and we wish you well in the future.”Shaderlight Ltd.
In light of this, CAD Software Direct will endeavour to support Shaderlight users that have purchased through us wherever possible, though we may be unable to assist with licensing issues that are handled in systems beyond our control.
Here at CAD Software Direct, we wish the very best for the entire ARTVPS team.
If you are affected by this news and would like information about how to keep using Shaderlight, or advice on alternative renderers, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
