Features

Virtual prototyping for automotive, industrial design

Features in VRED™ 3D product visualization and virtual prototyping software let you create compelling product presentations, design reviews, and virtual prototypes in real time.

Data preparation and navigation

  • Camera and navigation

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Interface improvements and visibility in the render view are among the many enhancements to the Camera function.

  • Data preparation and scene handling

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    UV Editor improvements include scale checker texture to adjust and better spot distorted areas. (video: 1:44 min)

  • Navigation in a scene

    VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    You can navigate more easily within a VRED scene and control which objects to select.

  • Enhanced geometry behavior

    VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

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

  • File I/O and interoperability

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Enhancements made to the Alias wire import capability, with Alias Variants and Transform Pivots support in VRED.

  • Import Alias layer structure

    VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Wire files from Alias industrial design software are imported with the corresponding layer and tagging information.

Visual setup

  • Light

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Improvements to lighting within VRED scenes, as well as support for more functionality in OpenGL mode.

  • Human Machine Interface

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Visualize HTML 5 content in a VRED scene, including immersive validation of a user HMI design in 3D. (video: 2:26 min)

  • Pre-rendering shadows into geometry

    VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Bake light shadows into geometry to get a more natural view of the object with fewer calculations. (video: 31 sec.)

  • Subsurface scattering

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

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

  • Lens flares

    Create a lens flare effect for your lights in raytracing and OpenGL modes.

  • Fog effect in VRED

    Create an atmospheric fog effect in your scene, with controls for color, falloff, and density.

  • Realistic materials

    VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Use a wide range of photorealistic, automotive virtual-prototyping materials such as glass, car paint, and metal.

  • Powerful lighting options

    VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Easily control brightness using HDR lighting to illuminate an entire scene with a high-dynamic-range picture.

  • Physical camera settings

    VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    The Camera module’s physical parameters make elaborate post-processing unnecessary.

  • Measured materials

    VRED PROFESSIONAL

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

  • Displacement mapping

    VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

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

  • Layered glass material

    VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

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