    Data preparation & navigation

  • Import Alias layer structure New

    VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Wire files from Alias industrial design software are now imported with the corresponding layer information, and layers are imported as tags.

  • Simple User Interface New

    VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    The new Simple User Interface helps casual users create imagery more quickly. 

  • Asset Manager New

    VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Create predefined asset libraries with the new Asset Manager module.

  • Camera collision detection New

    VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Navigate through your virtual space more easily with a camera that can now recognize and avoid colliding objects.

  • Integrated file converter

    VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Import a wide variety of file formats with the integrated DirectConnect CAD converter.

  • GeometryEditor

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Set surface normals and split objects according to specific degrees with the GeometryEditor.

  • Scripting API and command terminal

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Use the scripting API and interactive command terminal to make extensive customizations to VRED Professional.

    Evaluation workflows

  • Alias curvature shader New

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Now use the same curvature shader evaluation mode that is available in Alias industrial design software.

  • Visual simulation New

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    New visual simulation features help you better understand lighting distribution and let you define color spectrums on a mathematical basis.

  • Measurement, grid, and ruler tools

    VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Accurately evaluate model size and proportions. VRED includes tools that help you measure in 3D space, plus a reference grid and ruler to provide context.

  • Clipping module

    VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Use 3D clipping on digital data, polygons, and even on native NURBS data.

  • Analytic rendering modes

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Analyze 3D surface shape, quality, and continuity. Access multiple analytical rendering modes, including isophotes and zebra stripes.

  • Gap Analysis tool

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Evaluate the fit between adjacent surfaces with the Gap Analysis tool.

  • Annotations

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Attach annotations directly to a 3D model during an interactive review.

    Presentation

  • Oculus Rift support New

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Experience designs with a virtual reality head-mounted display.

  • VRED app New

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Remotely control a VRED scene from any mobile device. 

  • Animation module

    VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Create keyframe animations interactively in real time. Simulate motion sequences and produce moving images.

  • Variants and VariantSets

    VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Present different configurations of your 3D model using Variants and VariantSets.

  • Display options

    VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    VRED Design supports a wide range of stereo modes. Additional advanced modes are available in VRED Professional.

  • Conferencing and collaboration

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Synchronize two or more VRED Professional instances to show the same scene.

    Rendering

  • TrueNURBS New

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Build your own NURBS topology or rebuild an existing one.

  • Spectral rendering New

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Achieve color correctness with spectral rendering, and capture realistic dispersion effects with wavelength-based spectral rendering.

  • Multiple rendering modes

    VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Take advantage of a wide range of rendering modes that deliver different levels of display quality and speed.

  • Render passes and render layer

    VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    For additional post-processing, you can export your render passes for further adaptions in separate image processing software.

  • Sequencer

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Organize complex batch processes and execute them sequentially, on a single machine or in a CPU cluster environment.

  • Online and offline rendering modules

    VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Shorten rendering time by adding an offline rendering cluster module to VRED Design or an online rendering cluster module to VRED Professional.

    Visual setup

  • Physical camera settings New

    VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    The camera module’s physical parameters—focal length, shutter speed, f-stop, and depth of field—make elaborate post-processing unnecessary.

  • Measured materials New

    VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Use measured materials to visualize realistic material behavior based on captured material data.

  • Layered glass material New

    VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Single-sided objects can now have a simulated thickness in order to achieve the appropriate index of refraction (IOR).

  • Realistic materials

    VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Use a wide range of photorealistic material types such as glass, car paint, and metal.

  • Powerful lighting options

    VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Easily control lighting with a variety of features.

  • Displacement mapping

    VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Efficiently simulate highly detailed surface structure based on texture information, in real time.

  • Subsurface scattering

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Accurately simulate the translucent behaviors of materials such as skin, milk, wax, and plastic.
