Features in VRED™ 3D product visualization and virtual prototyping software enable you to create compelling product presentations, design reviews, and virtual prototypes in real time.
Interface improvements and visibility in the render view are among the many enhancements to the Camera function.
UV Editor improvements include scale Checker texture to adjust and better spot distorted areas. (video: 1:44 min)
You can navigate more easily within a VRED scene and control which objects can be selected.
Work more easily with the geometry, promote geometry simply, and communicate your designs more effectively.
File I/O and interoperability
We’ve made enhancements to the Alias wire import capability, with Alias Variants and Transform Pivots support in VRED.
Wire files from Alias industrial design software are now imported with the corresponding layer and tagging information.
Create imagery faster using features such as a scene module, an animation wizard, and an improved quick access bar.
Improvements to lighting within VRED scenes, as well as support for more functionality in Open GL mode.
Visualize and interact with HTML 5 content within a VRED scene, including immersive validation of a user HMI design in 3D. (video: 2:26 min)
Bake light shadows into geometry to get a more natural view of the object with fewer calculations. (video: 31 sec.)
Accurately simulate the translucent behaviors of materials such as skin, milk, wax, and plastic.
New | Lens flares
Create a lens flare effect for your lights in ray tracing and open GL modes.
New | Fog effect in VRED
Create an atmospheric fog effect in your scene, with controls for color, falloff, and density.
Use a wide range of photorealistic automotive virtual prototyping materials, such as glass, car paint, and metal.
Easily control brightness using HDR lighting to illuminate an entire scene with a high-dynamic-range picture.
The Camera Module’s physical parameters make elaborate post-processing unnecessary.
Use measured materials to visualize realistic behavior based on captured material data.
Efficiently simulate highly detailed surface structure based on texture information, in real time.
Single-sided objects can have a simulated thickness to achieve the appropriate index of refraction (IOR).
The Transform Variants function enables you to add multiple transforms as variants to the Scenegraph nodes. (video: 1:16 min.)
Get a more natural look and feel in your VR environment with hands and gestures in VRED. (video: 55 sec)
Create keyframe animations interactively in real time. Simulate motion sequences and produce moving images. (video: 2:04 min.)
Present different configurations of your 3D model using Variants and VariantSets.
In addition to our VR Oculus Rift and HTC Vive support, VRED offers extended support for head mounted displays.
Virtual reality enhancements
Improvements include omnidirectional stereo render for 360-degree style images for mobile and web VR (virtual reality).
Remotely control a VRED scene from your mobile device when connected to the Internet.
Improved metallic paint options better represent general metallic car paint for more realistic automotive virtual prototyping.
Use 3D clipping on digital data, polygons, and even on native NURBS data.
Attach annotations directly to a 3D model during an interactive review.
Use the same curvature shader evaluation mode that is available in Alias industrial design software.
Visual simulation features help you better understand lighting distribution inside a scene.
Set Material override in the Render Layer module. Store multiple render passes in pre-composed layered EXR and PSD files.
For additional post-processing, export your render passes for further adaptions in image processing software.
A noise reduction tool for rendering provides better visual quality for interior scenes with fewer overall samples.
Rendering modes help deliver various levels of display quality and speed. Switch between OpenGL and raytracing mode.
Organize how multiple users share a cluster, schedule cluster raytracing, and manage jobs.
Organize complex batch processes and execute them sequentially, on a single machine or in a CPU cluster environment.
Build NURBS topology or rebuild an existing one. With TrueNURBS, you can load the native NURBS data from a CAD model.
Achieve color correctness and capture realistic dispersion effects with wavelength-based spectral rendering.
