Autodesk VIZ 4 empowers designers to effectively explore and communicate design intent

SHARE

Autodesk, Inc., a leading design software and digital content company, has announced that Autodesk® VIZ 4 software, a significant new release of the award-winning 3D modelling, rendering, and animation tool formerly known as 3D Studio VIZ®, is now available worldwide. Tailoring the latest Discreet 3ds max™ professional 3D animation software solution for design professionals, Autodesk VIZ 4 introduces new, easy-to-implement lighting simulation capabilities directly within the application, allowing designers to generate richer, more compelling images that more accurately convey design intent under different lighting conditions. This increases the value of 3D visualization for exploring, validating and communicating design options to clients as well as to the extended project design team. Unlike previous versions of 3D Studio VIZ, Autodesk VIZ 4 fully integrates a new generation of global illumination rendering technology and physically based lighting within the application. Designers can now work more intuitively, focusing on the quality of their designs rather than on the specialized computer graphic techniques previously required to render them. With physically based lighting, designers can position lighting fixtures in their scenes as they would in the real world, and evaluate the lighting effects of a given design both visually and quantitatively.
