Since 1985, the Abvent Group has offered innovative image and design solutions for CAD professionals in the fields of architecture and design, and photography.
For over 20 years, Abvent's cutting edge approach to digital imagery has resulted in products and services that are innovative, powerful, and easy-to-use. A recognized leader in preview window technology, Artlantis Studio / Artlantis Render is the rendering software used by architects, designers and urban design professionals in more than 80 countries.
The new, physically correct Artlantis 6 rendering engine, with its legendary simplicity, allows you to create visualizations of an incomparable beauty and quality.
White Balance allows you to adjust the dominant color of a scene to the ambient lighting. Simply set this new parameter to automatic color mode or select a reference color, which will be recognized as white in the 3D scene.
This new option in Artlantis allows users to display a global ambient occlusion to create virtual shadows in small areas where natural light doesn’t go. It brings more depth and relief to both interior and exterior scenes.
During calculation, white model rendering changes all surfaces to white except for those that are transparent. Lights maintain their color for sophisticated environments.
Choose among many pre-set modes (indoor, outdoor, low light) and different definitions (speed, medium, quality), to quickly set the best results!
Artlantis offers two illumination methods: Automatic Light Adjustment and ISO/Shutter. By choosing the Automatic Light Adjustment setting, the lights and neon power used in the scene are automatically adjusted to the sky and sun illumination.
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.
Artlantis now fully compatible with HDRI files, for the background and for the global illumination. The "enhanced sky" function in the engine settings increases the photorealism of the images.
In addition, neon lights have been completely updated for this version with considerable gains in terms of quality and calculation speed.
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.
Integrated Alpha Mask Editor
This revolutionary tool allows you to add transparency to a foreground image directly in Artlantis to enhance the quality of your projects.
With a simple click on the reference plane in the preview window, you set the position and orientation of the projection of the laser. A red line projected 360 in the model allows you to automatically position the objects or textures.
Catalog & Media
Accessing the Artlantis Media Store is now done with a single click. To customize your catalog, Artlantis 6 lets you freely create your own folders at level 2. Thanks to the "drop-drop" tool, you can insert random media from the selection into the project with every click of the mouse.
Autosave, A long-awaited change! Artlantis 6 now makes it possible to autosave a file.
iVisit 3D (requires Artlantis Studio) uses only still images and not a real 3D model or animation, making the calculations and navigation very fast. Developed especially for architects and designers, iVisit 3D allows users to view and share a project by navigating between viewpoints on the floor plan, in a palette of thumbnail preview images, or directly within the 3D views.
iVisit 3D Panorama
Creating an iVisit 3D panorama presentation is easy using Artlantis Studio 5. Just create as many panoramic views of your project as you want to show, and simply link them to each other with a ‘drag & drop’.
iVisit 3D on the web or on the go!
The iVisit 3D Flash Player from Artlantis Studio -- free and royalty free -- is automatically created in the HTML folder when Artlantis Studio calculates a panorama or VR Object.
iVisit 3D VR Object
iVisit 3D VR Object allows you to manipulate and move a scene in 360°. Performed automatically, simply select the number of images to calculate horizontally and vertically to ensure a smooth animation.
