The EcoSystem revolution

Instantly populate your scenes with hundreds of thousands of wind-swept plants, rocks, objects or animated meshes. Interactively paint, erase and modify EcoSystems.

Plant animation

Animate SolidGrowth plants with breeze and wind, globally or per-plant. Breeze settings include random pulsations, gusts of wind and fluttering of leaves. Add omni and directional ventilators for local wind effects.

Infinite detail

Procedural terrains can be stretched to any size, yet display an unlimited level of detail. More detail is dynamically added closer to the camera.

Animated atmospheres

Animate all atmospheric elements (shifting volumetric clouds, twinkling stars, fog, haze, sunlight, etc…). Spectral atmospheres automatically react to the position of the sun, for ultra-realistic sunsets and time lapse animations.

Standard keyframing and motion design

Use standard animation tools like automatic or manual keyframing, time curves, move/copy/paste keyframes, tangents & interpolation, look-at constraints and ease in/out.

The Motion Designer automates the animation process for various types of vehicles by accurately following terrain elevations and adding secondary motion like spin, bank and vibration.

High-end rendering power

Light your animations with area lights, GI, radiosity and HDR image-based lighting. Speed-up render times with illumination baking, fast soft shadows, 2.5D motion blur and full network rendering.

Professional compositing tools

Import your models

Click to follow link

VUE imports most major 3D formats, so you can continue drafting and modeling in your favorite application without worrying about compatibility issues. You can import your models, complete with mapping and texturing information.

Any modification done in the CAD app will be dynamically updated in VUE. Objects can also be decimated to create low-poly proxies, which can then be instantly replaced back with the hi-res model for final render.

Apply realistic materials

Click to follow link

In addition to standard bitmaps, VUE features easy to use procedural materials, especially suited for irregular surfaces like stucco, stone, ground, moss and grass.

The advantage of procedural materials is that they never suffer from the tiling and distortion problems associated with bitmaps.

VUE comes with over 480 high quality preset materials in various categories (Rock, tiles, bricks, glass, water…).

Add vegetation

Click to follow link

With Vue, there’s no need to purchase expensive 3D trees, no need to re-use the same plant model over and over again, and no problems with polygon-heavy vegetation that slows down your system and workflow.

All of the included preset plant species are instantly grown inside the software using e-on’s unique SolidGrowth technology, meaning that no two plants of the same species look exactly alike.

EcoSystems

Click to follow link

This powerful new technology is especially handy for quickly covering surfaces with a very large number of plants and rocks.

EcoSystems work just like standard materials, so you can easily create pebble and stone beds, realistic grass, gardens and woods with just a couple of clicks.

Interactively paint* EcoSystems exactly where you need them. Erase, modify and color EcoSystems on the fly.

Add realistic atmospheres

Click to follow link

Unlike sky photos, Spectral atmospheres form an integral part of the lighting scheme. For instance, if you change the sun’s position from midday to afternoon, not only will the lighting change, but also the appearance of the sky and 3D clouds.

Easily select any one of the 160 preset atmospheres to quickly test your model’s appearance in various daytime and weather conditions.

Of course, you can still use background photos if you want to!


Create photorealistic renders

Click to follow link

Vue’s render engine offers high-end features for ultimate realism and quality. With technologies such as global illumination, radiosity and image-based lighting, it simulates the effects of indirect illumination (both outdoor and indoor), and adds complexity and depth to flat surfaces that are so common in architecture.

Matte Painting


All the Detail You’ll Ever Want

As a matte painter, you know how hard it is to create rich and detailed natural scenery. Jungles, forests, terrains… reproducing the complexity of nature requires a lot of work and attention to detail. And if you do it in 3D, it will also require huge polygon counts, which will slow most 3D programs to a crawl.

VUE is a matte painter’s heaven. With sophisticated features such as EcoSystem painting, procedural terrains, Spectral atmospheres, and SolidGrowth plants, it handles even the most demanding, highly-detailed environments with unmatched ease. Give it a go, and you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it!
