If you’re into CGI, than you heard about e-on software. The products these guys created proudly stand behind big name movies like Avatar, G.I.Joe, Australia, Imaginarium of Doctor Parnasius, Prince of Persia – Sands of Time and a lot others. You can check their official website to learn more here: http://www.e-onsoftware.com/
What you might not know, is that these guys work on a new plugin for SketchUP, and SketchUP Pro for architects, a plug-in that will revolutionize how we visualize architectural projects in real-time 3D with photo-real illumination called LumenRT.
From the creators:
Thanks to LumenRT, architects no longer have to choose between high-quality images and real-time visualization: They can walk or fly through their designs and experience the true quality of light in fully interactive 3D!
LumenRT real-time environments can even be packaged into convenient, self-contained executables that can be run on any computer without requiring additional software.
This is what is going to be possible in real-time:
LumenRT will be built as a photo-realistic light simulator. We don’t know a release date yet, since the software is in developing stage, but from what you can see, it promises a lot, and surely will deliver based on e-on software experience.
So stay tuned, and keep learning every day.
