- Homepage: Artlantis
- Current version: 2019 from December 2018
- Standalone rendering software. Reads a lot of 3d data formats like 3ds, obj. There are exporters for VectorWorks, Rhino, SketchUp and ArchiCad.
The renderer is tageted at architekts. It now offers a GI realtime feedback. With artlantis you can create interactive viewable panoramas that can be played with the free iVisit Flash based viewer. You setup all lighting, scenes and other elements and offer your client the possibility to visit every corner of a new building.
New naming scheme. Well, they introduced a easy to use site insertion tool where you load an image and define the area where your building should appear. A vegetation tool enables you to simply add vegetation to your geometry. An automatic exposure tool eliminates too dark and too bright areas.
Cannot tell much because the website is unreachable at the moment...
The renderer now has a new built in physical based render engine (what was it before?). You can set white balance, as well as physical camera settings for ISO/Shutter speed, or you can use an automatic exposure.
Everything is new! New logo (the most important modification!), new interface. The UI has been completly redesigned. It is easier to select medias what means assets like chairs, trees, vehicles. You can place and modify the objects direct in the render view which updates directly after the modification, very useful. Artlantis now allows volumetric spot lights. Post processing allow the addition of god rays. You can now create VR representations of your scene and give it away, but you will need the iVisit3D application.
With the new release you can add a plugin which enables you to use Maxwell renderer as render engine. Interesting, but expensive.
