Artlantis 5 sneak peek: New user interface

'N' stands for New, as in New user interface, brought to you by Artlantis 5!

The Artlantis 5 Revolution is almost here, and we saved the best for last.  The new user interface  can now be viewed in one window and in full screen on both Mac and PC platforms.  Keep an eye on your project and your tools at your fingertips!

Real-time radiosity preview

Artlantis’s productivity is based on a founding concept: real-time preview. Regardless of the change in the scene settings (materials, lighting, environment), the preview is updated instantly.  You control your work, you confirm your changes, and you run the calculation in high definition for your final image without wasting time.


The freedom offered by Artlantis 5 comes from the multitude of viewpoints that you can create, save, and organize. Each viewpoint allows you to create a real study of your scene: date, a light source change, a camera lens change, adding a background -- edit and save the combinations of parameters in your list of viewpoints that are important to you.

In order to optimize the display of your project while keeping an eye on your list views, they appear on the left-hand side of the screen in a fixed position with a refocusing of the preview on the left, or on the fly so that the preview is not moved!


Now grouped at the top of the screen, inspectors allow you to set all the parameters associated with shaders, objects, lights, heliodons and perspectives (perspectives, projected views, panoramas, VR objects and animations). The real backbone of Artlantis 5 is this clear and intuitive tool bar, allowing you to access -- with a minimum of clicks -- a maximum of Artlantis features and settings. You can make adjustments, improvements, and fine-tune your scene and see the results instantly -- without taking your eyes off the preview window.
