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

  • Simple user interface

    VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Create imagery faster using features such as a scene module, an animation wizard, and an improved quick access bar.

Visual setup

  • New

    Light

    VRED Professional

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

  • NEW

    Human Machine Interface

    VRED Professional

    Visualize and interact with HTML 5 content within a VRED scene, including immersive validation of a user HMI design in 3D. (video: 2:23 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.

  • Realistic materials

    VRED, 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, 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, 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).

Presentation

  • New

    Transform Variants

    VRED Professional

    The Transform Variants function enables you to add multiple transforms as variants to the Scenegraph nodes. (video: 1:16 min.)

  • Support for new HMD

    VRED Professional

    In addition to our VR Oculus Rift and HTC Vive support, VRED offers extended support for head mounted displays.

  • Animation Module

    VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

    Create keyframe animations interactively in real time. Simulate motion sequences and produce moving images. (video: 2:04 min.)

  • Variants and VariantSets

    VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL

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

  • New | Virtual reality enhancements

    VRED Professional

    Improvements include omnidirectional stereo render for 360-degree style images for mobile and web VR (virtual reality).

  • VRED app

    VRED Professional

    Remotely control a VRED scene from your mobile device when connected to the Internet.

  • Enhancements in materials

    VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL
