Vue 8 Studio - Color and Life
Now that you've created a nice setting, it's time to add life to your 3D world:
Paint Your World
Gold, plastic, metal, wood, glass, water... Vue 8 Studio ships with hundreds of preset materials, of all kinds!
To turn a plastic ring into gold, pick "gold" from the material browser. It doesn't cost more!
Turn simple shapes into complex geometry thanks to displacement materials. Add moss, grass or forests using EcoSystems!
Vue 8 Studio can even simulate wax, marble or human skin thanks to Subsurface Scattering.
And if you can't find the preset you need, Vue 8 Studio features all the tools to create your own materials!
Let There Be Light
With Vue 8 Studio, you get all the standard lighting rigs, plus a lot more: Global Illumination, Image Based Lighting, High Dynamic Range, Caustics, Subsurface Scattering, Godrays - all the technologies used in the latest movie blockbusters are at your fingertips. And we even made them easy to use!
Build Your Objects
Enrich your compositions with houses, castles, vehicles... they're all easily built using Boolean and Metablob modeling!
Dig a hole in a cube by "Boolean-subtracting" a cylinder from it. Blend simple shapes together like clay using Metablobs.
All operations are non-destructive; you can always redo them, or tweak them as needed.
Import your own pictures and use them as textures or billboards. It's fun to picture yourself on a distant alien planet!
Professional-Style 3D Titling
The Powerful 3D Text editor lets you create amazing three-dimentional titles for video and DVD.
It’s so easy and strait-forward, you’ll feel right at home with it! Create your own illustrated Christmas cards, greeting cards, 3D photo labels and DVD titles!
