Vue 8 Studio
Advanced Digital Nature Application for 3D Artists
Vue 8 Studio is the advanced Digital Nature application with powerful vegetation and rendering features for dedicated 3D Artists. Focused on enhanced natural vegetation capabilities, advanced rendering features and extended Poser integration, Vue 8 Studio provides comprehensive control over the creation of complex scenes, while maintaining an intuitive workflow.
Vue 8 Studio adds to Vue 8 Esprit the technologies available in the Botanica, LightTune, DeepAccess, HyperVue and EcoSystem expansion modules.
What’s in the Box?
Vue 8 Studio adds the EcoSystem, Botanica, LightTune, DeepAccess and HyperVue modules to Vue 8 Esprit. For your convenience, the other optional modules can be purchased separately: check here for more info on optional modules.
Vue 8 Studio ships with an extensive collection of preset trees, buildings, scenes, characters, etc.
Thanks to the EcoSystem module included in Vue 8 Studio, you can create and edit your own EcoSystem materials. Control the size, color, orientation, placement, density, etc. of your EcoSystem populations. Create layered EcoSystems and adjust the affinity between the different layer populations.
With the Botanica Plant Editor, Vue 8 Studio lets you customize the included SolidGrowth plants to create your own, unique plant species. Adjust the settings for the entire plant, or work on individual subsets (trunk, branches leaves...). Save your newly created species to create slightly different plants each time.
With LightTune, pump up your lighting effects with advanced features such as detailed per-object light influence, AccuShadows™ shadow mapping, spotlight view-through and custom attenuation graphs.
Fully control even the most complex scenes thanks to DeepAccess. Add an unlimited number of layers. Link and incorporate imported objects and maps with dynamic updates. Sort objects by size, type or name. Easily manage and modify multiple object instances.
With HyperVue, dramatically cut down render times by distributing your render jobs accross a network of up to 5 computers (Macintosh or Windows). Easily set up and manage the render network with the included SmartCow™ and NewCow™ technologies.
The RenderUp module, included with Vue 8 Studio, lets you render images without any limitation of size nor quality (other than system resources). It also grants you advanced control over the Vue 8 rendering engine.
The 3DImport module, also part of Vue 8 Studio, lets you import content created with other 3D applications. Thanks to 3DImport, Vue 8 Studio can read and import 3D objects in all popular formats, complete with texturing information.
This includes the ability to natively load static or animated Poser characters, re-pose them directly inside of Vue, and even render them using the Poser shading tree!
Vue 8 Studio ships on two disks, packed full of quality content for use in your scenes.
The content included with Vue 8 Studio features over 190 3D objects (of which 18 animals, 28 buildings, 5 characters, 21 vehicles, etc) as well as over 50 additional plant species and 10 new sets.
