Coming soon : new Artlantis Render and Studio

ARTLANTIS offers full radiosity and powerful control of 3D models

Paris, FRANCE, February 12, 2008

The ABVENT Group today announced the release of the latest version of Artlantis Render and Studio, rendering software dedicated to architects, designers and most 3D CAD users. The key new features enhance Artlantis' lighting, photo-realism, rendering quality, user-friendly interface, and creative possibilities.

"We kept everything that Artlantis is famous for—its ease of use, intuitive interface and, above all, its powerful controls—and we introduced new technologies that work for the user," stated Frederic Blanc, Artlantis graphic and design product manager at ABVENT. "Artlantis is unique among rendering software packages in the way it integrates radiosity into a live 3D preview. The 3D model is displayed in real-time using high quality radiosity lighting effects, maintaining an appearance consistent with the final rendering."

With this new concept of Full radiosity, Artlantis improves all lighting conditions, and offers Real sky simulation and Automatic light adjustment. Artlantis' new options include Integrated image post-processing, enabling users to modify the effects of a rendered image without additional image editing software. Thanks to a new Shader creator, users can now create their own shaders and access a Rich Media collection of shaders and 3D objects. Artlantis family introduces 5 new media volumes: 3D Animated People, 2D Bilboard People, Cars, Stones and Marble Floor.

Suggested Retail Price starts at 495 € for Artlantis Render and 895 € for Artlantis Studio

yes , it might be a nice version , but actually it is slow .. i mean one of the things that made artlantis always special , is the " few minutes " rendering time .

but with this version ( beta version ) a normal picture ( i would say it takes up to 10 minutes in Artlantis Studio ) it takes up to 45 minutes in this version , and guess what ... it might not take more than an hour to render it in 3D studio Max ... so i guess its not the easy to use that we need but time , and i think we've just lost that !!

any how i like Artlantis , but its not special anymore , thats what i think :)
