PlantFactory 2016 R2 Now Shipping

Stylized Meshing Mode - Cycling through various Smoothing and Convexity quality values


PlantFactory 2016 R2 Now Available

The Release of PlantFactory 2016 R2 goes alongside the recently released VUE 2016 R2.

Key new features in PlantFactory 2016 R2 include:

Stylized Meshing Mode: The new Stylized Meshing mode enables you to quickly and automatically generate a low polygon envelope version of vegetation models and export models with a small polygon footprint while retaining the actual vegetation visual volume. Additionally, envelope resolution, smoothing, and convexity quality is user configurable and can range from none to ultra-sharp edged meshes to ultra-smooth. Stylized Meshing mode can also be used creatively to produce non-photorealistic vegetation.


3-Axis Billboard Leaves Rotation: Using Billboard leaves is ideal when working for Real-Time engines, or, in an offline workflow, to create low polygon plants to be seen from a distance. (Billboard leaves are perfect for VUE EcoSystem populations for instance). Quick and easy to set up, this new feature is perfect to avoid any obvious linear visual pattern, by letting you add slight randomization to leaves axis rotation.

Introducing VUE 2016 R2


VUE 2016 R2 Now Available

We are pleased to introduce VUE 2016 Release 2 (R2)!

These new releases reflect our commitment to bring new features and functionality to VUE and PlantFactory as frequently as possible. We plan to release incremental updates that introduce new functionality every 4 months.

Key new features in VUE 2016 R2 include:

360° VR Panoramas: VUE 2016 R2 enables the rendering of 360° panoramas as static images or animations, which are compatible with all of VUE's render options, such as multi-pass or high dynamic range (HDR). When rendering a VR panorama, VUE automatically levels the camera perfectly to avoid unwanted distortion. Rendered VR panoramas are automatically recognized by Facebook, YouTube, and other panoramic compliant platforms as 360° images or videos.

Up to 16 Viewports:(1) VUE 2016 R2 enables you to set up to 16 viewports instead of the four traditional views. This feature is particularly useful on a multi-monitor system, to test various framing options or when adding more camera angles without touching any of the main scene setup. All additional viewports retain the same traditional options, such as render in view and the ability to set up as many perspective cameras as users would like.



UX/UI improvements:

Terrain modeling:

  • "Blend Terrain with Image" automatically modifies the Heightfield Terrain function graph (instead of modifying the terrain Heightmap).
  • Simplified "Resample Terrain" replaces "Resize Terrain", to update terrain resolution without changing its size within the scene.

User Interface:

  • The "Interactive slider changes" option now also affects the mouse wheel for more dynamic visual display of users' modifications in real-time.
  • Improved visibility in viewports as a result of revised wireframe selection colors.
  • The user interface is now locked when downloading an object or a scene from the extra content.

Materials

  • Easier access and editing of multiple materials through sub-menu hierarchy display.

VUE 2016 Leaks #3: Heightfield Terrains

Heightfield Terrains - More flexible and a lot more Powerful!

With VUE 2016, we're introducing a brand new terrain modeling technology, more flexible and a lot more powerful, called "Heightfield Terrains".

This new technology allows you to add terrain effects that were previously impossible to achieve, such as Hydrological & Thermal Simulations!

Similar to procedural terrains, Heightfield Terrains are based on a function graph, but baked on a fixed-resolution grid. This will give you more flexibility and add more realism to your terrains. Heightfield Terrains are also significantly faster to render!

Heighfield terrains are manually sculptable and parameters can be animated - e.g. to simulate a terrain erosion over time for instance!

And finally, you can easily set up your graph outputs to drive your material presence, directly from within the Terrain Editor interface.



The Heightfield Terrains technology comes with its set of new dedicated nodes and presets, like Erosion, Slope, Convexity, Blur or Terrace.

New Layout Nodes also let you design a terrain's "layout" (most prominent features) using hand-drawn elements like Splines, elements from the scene, or simple shapes (circles, rectangles, rounded rectangles).

Start as simple as drawing a line,
let the power of the Terrain Editor do the rest!


Stay tuned for more VUE-Leaks in the coming days!



VUE 2016 Leaks #2: PlantFactory Variations

Easily and quickly add more realism to your scenes.
Improve your productivity at the same time!

1- In PlantFactory 2016

PlantFactory 2015 introduced the concept of Presets. PlantFactory 2016 now introduces the concept of Preset Variations.

Preset Variations allow you to immediately include subtle differences to your plant (change the number of buds on a blooming flower, or its petal colors for instance).

This new feature allows you to easily add variety to create realistic environments with one single plant species!

2- In VUE 2016

Within VUE 2016, you directly get access to the PlantFactory species presets and variations within the Plant Browser, the Plant Editor and within your EcoSystem population list.

So, at every step of your scene creation process, you are able to select the species you want, the preset you want and the variations you want!

Quick, easy, productive!


Stay tuned for more VUE-Leaks in the coming days!



VUE 2016 Leaks #1: Interactive Path Tracer

Hybrid GPU/CPU Interactive Path Tracer

GPU rendering comes to VUE with the new Path Tracer renderer. This renderer naturally and automatically simulates real-life lighting, and automatically calculates many effects that have to be specifically set with other methods, such as soft shadows, depth of field, caustics, ambient occlusion, and indirect lighting.

Path tracing in VUE 2016 is available as an interactive rendering quality in the viewports, as well as an offline rendering engine.



Stay tuned for more VUE-Leaks in the coming days!
