Q100246: 3Delight for Katana



This article explains where to find information about downloading and installing the 3Delight renderer and plug-in for Katana.


The 3Delight renderer and the 3Delight for Katana (3DFK) renderer plug-in are provided by the 3Delight team.

Starting from Katana 3.0v1, 3Delight ships bundled with Katana and can be installed as part of the Katana installation process. Please see this article for further details: Q100400: Installing Katana 3.x

The 3Delight version shipped with Katana can license off a valid katana_i (GUI) license in Katana's UI mode. This means that 3Delight can be used in Preview and Live Renders without requiring an additional license. If you wish to render files to disk, a 3Delight render license, 3delight_r, is required. If no such license is found, the rendered images will be watermarked and the render will be slower than normal.  

Customers requiring a 3delight_r license can contact for further information.

The renderer and plug-in are also available for download from the 3Delight website here:


If 3Delight is installed as part of the Katana installation, it will be automatically set up so it is ready to use with Katana.

If you wish to install the renderer and plug-in separately, the user manual with installation instructions can be found here:
