Vue 7 at SIGGRAPH 2008
The next update of Vue will be on display at August 12th's SIGGRAPH expo, developer E-on has announced. The software is used to design, animate and render natural environments in 3D, for use in movies, architectural work or general illustration. Vue 7 will incorporate a third version of E-on's underlying EcoSystem engine, along with new editions of supporting technologies, such as SolidGrowth, the Spectral atmosphere engine, and the indoor Radiosity engine.
The high-end Vue 7 package, xStream, will integrate all tools into whatever host application it is associated with. Some supported platforms will include 3DS Max, Maya, Softimage XSI, Cinema 4D and LightWave. Vue 7 is expected to ship sometime before the end of 2008.
