E-ON UPDATES NATURAL ENVIRONMENT CREATION TOOL
SAN DIEGO - E-on software
(www.e-onsoftware.com/professional), maker of Vue, a solution for creating
natural 3D environments, has introduced Release 6.5 of Vue Infinite and Vue
xStream for 3DS Max, Cinema4D, LightWave, Maya and XSI.
The new release allows users to create skies with as many
overlapping spectral cloud layers as desired. A new cloud lighting technology
lets local lights affect spectral atmospheres and clouds. Users can now create
realistic thunderstorms, search lights or illuminated fly through clouds. And
optimized spectral atmosphere anti-flickering technology allows for faster
rendering of spectral atmosphere animations.
Release 6.5 is available as a free software upgrade to all
Vue 6 Infinite and Vue 6 xStream owners. Vue 6 xStream starts at $895, and Vue
6 Infinite starts at $695 (node-locked licenses, download versions), with upgrades and educational discounts
available. Site licensing is also available for both products.
