Artlantis is the fastest stand-alone 3D rendering and animation software for PC and Mac. Designed especially for architects, interior designers and other design professionals it is a leader in preview window technology and radiosity, also known as global illumination.
Combining the most advanced and efficient tools for rendering photo-realistic 3D projects, Artlantis interfaces directly with many leading architectural CAD and BIM software titles, such as ArchiCAD™, Revit™, SketchUp™ Pro, Vectorworks™, and Arc+™. Native support for many popular file formats, such as DXF, DWG, 3DS, DWF, OBJ, and FBX, allows Artlantis to seamlessly interact with nearly all leading 3D CAD and BIM software on the market today.
Like previous versions, Artlantis 4 is designed based on the original concept of the interactive preview window, with user-defined settings that provide immediate visual feedback on changes made to the project. The new and improved rendering engine allows users to generate radiosity images in real-time directly within the 3D preview window, providing an accurate representation of the final rendering in real-time, while saving the end user valuable time as changes are made to the project.
Artlantis 4.1 introduces ISO/shutter settings and an alternative to automatic lighting adjustment, as well as HDRi Backgrounds. The HDR image provides a spherical background as well as an overall illumination with shadows and full, 360 degree reflections.
