AutoShade was an MS DOS application developed by Autodesk to produce realistic shaded renderings of AutoCAD Drawings using 3D Faces. It simulated various types of lights such as Spot, Point and Infinite Directional. To create a rendering you first had to create an AutoCAD Drawing file containing 3D faces. The Next step is placing lights and cameras in the drawing (as blocks, supplied with the AutoShade package for use in AutoCAD). Then, running an AutoLISP application provided by AutoShade, the 3D faces, Camera blocks and lighting blocks were saved out to a "Scene" file. This "Scene" file is then opened from within AutoShade and contains all the information needed to render the image.
The AutoShade software seems to be old or discontinued.
Such programs may not work on modern operating systems properly, are no longer available and supported by their original developers, or are simply obsolete for their purpose. Sometimes companies offer limited support through their website.
Note: You can click on any file extension link from the list below, to view its detailed information. The list of extensions used or otherwise associated with the application may not be complete, because many common file extensions on our website, such as jpg (pictures) or txt (text files), can be opened by a large number of applications, or are too general file format. However most, if not all directly associated file extensions should be listed with its appropriate program. Although its likely, that some file extensions may be missing from the list of associated file extensions with the application, yet they can be opened, be part of, or otherwise be associated with the program.
