Physical engine - To create stunning images, Artlantis 6 now includes its own built-in physical engine, emphasizing physical rendering quality, precision, material accuracy, and energy consumption. Real-time preview -- Artlantis's founding concept -- gives users continuous control of each change in the scene. Artlantis stands out as the only rendering software able to provide a quality / calculation time ratio as relevant in the preview as in the final calculation. Simply put -- all Artlantis developments share the same goal: ease of use, quality and speed.
Lighting and Neon lighting - Artlantis 6 introduces a standard lighting measurement system -- the power units are measured in lumens. By default, Artlantis offers 8 IES pre-set profiles. Artlantis 6 now allows you to import downloaded IES profiles from manufacturers' websites. These files are used to simulate realistic illumination of your projects. In addition, neon lights have been completely updated for this version with considerable gains in terms of quality and calculation speed.
Site insertion - When using the site insertion feature, Artlantis 6 offers a new and simple projection process with more accurate calculations. After aligning the XYZ axis in the 2D view and in the preview window, the model is easily positioned on the background image. A revolutionary integrated tool allows you to add transparency to a foreground image directly in Artlantis to enhance the quality of your projects.
