 ProWalker GPU V1.1.9 has been released - Bugfix

ProWalker GPU V1.1.9 has been updated for SketchUp 2017, 2018, and 2019. This is a free update for all licensed users.

Termination criteria bugfix — This update contains an important bugfix for a problem that caused ProWalker to terminate stil renders before the user-specified sample count or time limit had been reached.

In other words, if a user set ProWalker's termination criteria to 1000 samples for a still render, ProWalker would sometimes stop and save the image at a much lower count, resulting in an "under-rendered" image with more noise than expected.

This update solves the termination problem and updates NVIDIA Iray to the newest available version. As always, we recommend checking to make sure your GPU driver is up to date when updating ProWalker.
