CL3VER, whose flagship 3D visualization application goes by the same name, has announced the all new CL3VER 3.0—now powered by a brand new proprietary WebGL GPU driven lightmap technology.
The cloud-based, interactive 3D presentation software is solving one of the oldest problems in presentation-oriented businesses, such as architecture and product design—long rendering times.
Version 3.0 introduces a new proprietary automatic real-time lightmap rendering solution that drastically shortens rendering time by passing off the rendering duties to today’s powerful GPUs (graphics rendering units) typically found in today’s workstations and laptop computers. Rendering times that used to take hours are now taking just minutes.
This latest version will offer engineers, architects, urban planners, and other design professionals a higher level of flexibility and faster iterative workflows. The end result is the ability to create the innovative, CL3VER final rendered and interactive presentations useful to all stakeholders in projects.
Any changes to the design or presentation can now be more quickly incorporated since extensive re-rendering will no longer be required. The lightmapping process is automatic, meaning the scenes are calculated in real-time while the users continue to work on the presentation allowing them to immediately see the impact of design changes in an illuminated scene. The difference between the old version and the new version with lightmaps can be seen in the image above. (image 01)
CL3VER 3.0 will be released 11 March 2015, just one week before CL3VER’s participation in the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference in San Jose, California, at booth #118.
CL3VER has enabled a subscription list to provide early access to the 3.0 version. To learn more here.
