Features for VRED, VRED Design, and VRED Professional

Prepare your data for 3D rendering

VRED™ software provides two user interfaces—simple and advanced—so all users can benefit from real-time visualization. Prepare and optimize your data for virtual prototyping and 3D automotive rendering.

    Data preparation & navigation

  • UV unwrapper module New

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    The new UV Wrapper module enables users to unwrap, cut, and sew meshes directly inside VRED for better control over the texturing of materials.

  • Import Alias layer structure

    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. Retaining the Alias layer structure shortens data preparation time and simplifies your workflow. You can now select objects according to the layer information.

  • Simple User Interface

    VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    The new Simple User Interface helps casual users create imagery more quickly. Take advantage of new features such as a scene module, an animation wizard, a render queue function, and an improved quick access bar.

  • GeometryEditor

    VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Set surface normals and split objects according to specific degrees with the GeometryEditor. The phong geometry subdivision helps you get a smooth silhouette even when your tessellation is insufficient. Also, the improved normal calculation leads to better results when your imported model does not provide vertex normals.

  • Scripting API and command terminal

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Use the scripting API and interactive command terminal to make extensive customizations to VRED Professional. You can also use the scripting features of VRED Professional to customize VRED Design, but just in read-only mode.

  • Asset Manager

    VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Create predefined asset libraries with the new Asset Manager module. Libraries can contain any kind of scene element such as materials, environments, and external scenes. Store libraries on your enterprise network with read/write permissions set at the file level. Create standardized libraries for each department as well as for your entire company.

  • Camera collision detection

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Navigate through your virtual space more easily with a camera that can now recognize and avoid colliding objects. This feature is particularly helpful for point-of-sale installations and interactive presentations, as it prevents the camera from going through objects or flying out of the environment.

  • Asset Manager improvements

    VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    The asset manager provides prebuilt materials, environments, and geometrics that enable a user to quickly build a scene. In the latest release of VRED, several improvements help you maintain and use these assets.

  • Automotive product interoperability

    VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Choose between VRED, Alias, and Maya navigation—and selection—modes.

  • Enhanced geometry behavior

    VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Work more easily with the geometry, promote geometry throughout the screen space more simply, and communicate your designs more effectively.

  • Navigation in a scene

    VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    When working in the VRED scene, navigate within the scene more easily and control which objects can be selected.
