New Artlantis Render and Studio expected shortly

A new Artlantis Render and Studio are set for announcement shortly. New version will feature more advanced animation and better rendering


A CAD newsletter has picked up on an Abvent webpage detailing a soon-to-be announced new version of Artlantis Render and Artlantis Studio, one of the most popular 3D rendering applications used in architectural industries worldwide. Artlantis was an application born on the Macintosh by French-developer Abvent. The new version is expected to feature some exciting new features.

Future Artlantis 2

Abvent’s new webpage for what they are currently calling ARTLANTIS 2 runs off many of the new features we’ll outline below:

  • Full Radiosity – A new rendering engine allows accurate radiosity images in real time within the 3D preview window. You can display your 3d model in global illumination.
  • Physical Sky – The new version will feature a new “physical sky” allowing for realistic environmental simulation. This includes a sun, a moon, stars and other sky elements — which can all cast light onto the project using GI (global illumination).
  • New integrated post-processing – Artlantis will feature more post-processing editing tools, including new options for the setting of luminance, contrast and color index.
  • Shader Editor – The new version features an automatic texture definition and shaders have new properties: specular reflection, shiny ness, blur effect, normal mapping, et cetera. And for advanced users they can now create their own shaders through a sophisticated new interface.
  • Rich Media – Artlantis 2 will feature animated people (walking, running and dancing. Their clothes can be modified.
  • Media CDs – There will be five new CDs with new materials, cars, people (animated also), et cetera.

Artlantis 2 (see Architosh review, Artlantis R, date) looks to be a great update and the rendering sample on this pageshows that. Artlantis is known for its ease-of-use, deep integration with top architectural CAD and modeler programs (there are plugins for ArchiCAD, VectorWorks, SketchUp and more) and it runs superbly on the Mac in addition to Windows. The company says it will be announced soon.

Artlantis is used by over 75,000 professionals worldwide in over 80 countries.
