Kerkythea not free/opensource anymore for SK2019?

As I just installed 2019
I find out that Visualizer does not exist anymore for 2019

I went to Kerkythea as it is known as opensource renderer.
and I quote
“Kerkythea is a freeware software that can produce high quality renders without spending a cent on software licensing.”

SKU 2019 is not listed in the Kerkythea
"For SketchUp 6, 7, 8, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 (Make or Pro) "

Downloaded Thea for Sketchup and with first test and find myself
with a test render covered with Thea watermarks like a carpet

Are most opensource dying out fast?

Kerkythea is still free and it still works with SketchUp 2019. These have all been modeled in SketchUp 2019 and rendered in Kerkythea. I can come up with more if you need more proof.

You can try Simlab Composer Lite, it is a free (HD, 1080 no watermark) rendering engine that can open SU files.

Hello Thank you very much . you are very kind I do NOT “need proof” (your funny)
I have downloaded Kerkythea as yes it looks the same
BUT before that I downloaded “Thea” only and got all the watermarks
what is that then it rendered MUCH faster.
Is that a paying version?

Thea render is now owned by Altair. It is a payed version.

Is it MUCH better than KT and works the same way?
WOW 225$ PER year mmh
