Redway Viewer 1.3Redway, the 3D interactive software publisher, announces the availability of Redviewer version 1.3
Redviewer can save up to 30% of time on a 3D production by processing interactive ray-tracing in the Autodesk® 3ds Max® / VIZ Viewport. It removes most of the intermediate renderings necessary to tune a CG image. Sold at 290 € until September 30, 06 (VAT excluded), Redviewer can be paid back just in a few weeks!
Fully integrated to the Autodesk® 3ds Max® / VIZ user interface, Redviewer supports most of Autodesk® 3ds Max® / VIZ parameters including materials, lights, shadows, reflections and transparencies.
Redviewer v1.3 release highlights:
Redviewer v1.3 adds full scene anti-aliasing support to the pre-visualization experience. It can be used to generate high-quality “make preview” movies or directly inside the viewport to catch all small rendering details in a scene. v1.3 although adds a rendering interruption capability, ATI support (beta version), old generation nVIDIA cards support, and memory optimizations.
Tune scene lights and shadows interactively
Redviewer Interactive lighting capabilities cover all Autodesk® 3ds Max® / VIZ lights (directional, omni, spot, photometric) and mental ray® lights. It displays interactively shadow maps, ray-traced shadows, area shadows, alpha and colored shadows as well.
Generate reflection and transparencies interactively
True reflections and transparencies are although interactively displayed within the Autodesk® 3ds Max® / VIZ viewport, making all intermediate renderings useless for tuning.
Compute high quality pre-visualization film up to 50 times faster
Finally, by supporting animations and “make preview” features, Redviewer enables high quality pre-visualization films computed up to 50 times faster than traditional renderer. An immediate feed back can be communicated to the project stakeholder.
