Requirements & Pricing    

Minimum System Requirements

VUE is a 64 bit application, designed for 64 bit versions of Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 and Intel Mac OS X platforms.

Like all 3D packages, it is highly demanding in terms of computer power. Although the application is totally multi-threaded to ensure the smoothest possible response, you have to realize that there is a lot going on when you work in VUE.

Please note that using VUE on a system carrying the below specification may result in slow response time and longer render times!

Please read further on for recommended minimal specification for an optimal VUE experience.

Macintosh
  • Mac OS X v10.6+ 64bit,
  • 2GHz Intel processor or faster,
  • 1GB of free RAM,
  • 200 MB of free Hard Disk space,
  • 1200x768 in 65K colors/16 bits (24+ bits recommended).
Windows
  • Windows 7/Windows 8/Windows 10 64bit,
  • 2GHz Pentium IV or better processor,
  • 1GB of free RAM,
  • 200 MB of free Hard Disk space,
  • 1200x768 in 65K colors/16 bits (24+ bits recommended).


Recommended System Specs

  • Windows 64 bit (Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10), Mac OS X v10.12
  • Multi-core CPU (Intel QuadCore, Core I7, or Mac Pro), AVX compliant (windows)
  • 8GB+ of RAM,
  • 4GB+ of free Hard Disk space (on the drive hosting the OS),
  • An OpenGL accelerated video board (see below for optimal compatibility)


Supported Video Boards

VUE xStream 2016 includes an automatic configuration tool that will set all OpenGL options just after install, for optimized previewing on your video board / driver.

Any reasonably recent video board (typically less than 3 years old) with at least 1GB of dedicated VRAM and up-to-date drivers should allow you to get the most out of VUE's OpenGL engine.

If you run into any OpenGL issues, try disabling background draw and antialiasing in the Options panel. Worst case scenario: you can always run VUE in software OpenGL mode.


     
 

Warning: Laptops using Nvidia's Optimus or ATI's BinaryGFX technologies may present severe OpenGl problems. We recommend that users deactivate this option when running VUE!
