Vue updates renderer

E-on has introduced updates to several of its tools for creating 3D environments, Vue 7.5 xStream and Vue 7.5 Infinite. The xStream plug-in adds support for the V-Ray rendered for 3ds Max, along with EcoSystem painting in XSI. Both the plug-in and standalone variant, Infinite, now offer color and alpha masks of single clouds and cloud layers in the multi-pass rendered. Camera Mapping is claimed to significantly reduce render times, while the software takes advantage of multi-processor technology to enhance procedural terrains, dynamic EcoSystems and panoramic rendering.

Users can apply spherical and planetary procedural terrains with infinite levels of detail. The software also offers spherical cloudscapes, either procedural or based on real-world cloud maps. Cloud layers can also cast and receive shadows from other cloud layers and objects in the scene.

Vue 7.5 xStream will be available for Windows or Mac platforms, with a a price of $1500 for new customers or $500 as an upgrade from version 7. Vue 7.5 Infinite carries a retail price of $900, while upgrades will be available for $300.
