e-on Software has announced the unveiling of the upcoming Vue 11 product line. Key new features include faster rendering, illumination caching, terrain and EcoPainter improvements, 360 degree population, interactive EcoSystem population, as well as EcoParticles, e-on software’s revolutionary approach to particles.
With EcoParticles, users can do all the standard stuff that particles are good at, but they can also do a lot more. Rather than creating simple emitters, and having particles grow out of them, e-on software designed a new way of handling particles that is specifically well suited for Digital Nature.
