LumenRT 4.4 update adds improved export capabilities

E-on Software's LumenRT 4 Studio has received an update, offering improved exporting for LumenRT plugin platforms, including CityEngine, MicroStation, Revit and Sketchup. LumenRT 4 Studio is a comprehensive system for terraforming three-dimensional models and designs, aimed to deliver realistic natural elements for videos, images and immersive experiences.



Version 4.4's GeoDesign Plugin is fully compatible with the Esri's CityEngine 2013. It adds the ability to work directly with CityEngine 2013 plants and improves the export of terrain objects. In Microstation, the plugin update has improved large scene handling and extended lighting support, offers Revit full UV materials and nested lights, and Sketchup is provided with enhanced Mac display driver and support for future Sketchup releases. LumenRT 4.4 is a free update for existing users, with the full software priced at $795.

Scout for iPhone adds hands-free mobile navigation

Voice activated navigation app Scout has added a hands-free voice recognition feature for iPhone. Its new feature is called "Hey Scout", which lets users search and drive using Scout without physically touching the screen. While the app runs in the foreground, the user can launch the app's voice recognition search capabilities by saying "Hey Scout." After the feature is engaged, search commands can be facilitated, such as "drive home", "drive to Best Buy," "find cheap gas," and so on.



"Hey Scout" commands includes searching for businesses, address entry, drive home or work, and more. Users can log in through Facebook for password simplification, and can sync their favourites, recent places, and setting across devices. Scout is available free from iTunes, and requires iOS 6 or later.
