E-on software announces Vue d'Esprit 4 (Vue 4), the next version of its 3D scenery animation and rendering software. Vue 4 improvements include a new ease-of-use architecture and the addition of several advanced realism features for the creation of natural-looking 3D graphics. In addition to rendering speed improvements and UI enhancements, Vue 4 adds a whole new volumetric atmosphere system that mimics the complex interactions of air and light; volumetric clouds, materials and lights. It adds the ability to reproduce lens flares, stellar and atmospheric objects, planets, moons, stars, rainbows and ice rings. Vue 4 brings a new Terrain Editor and SolidGrowth 2. The Terrain Editor comes with a real-time 3D preview, random rock generator, and symmetrical terrains. SolidGrowth 2 advances e-on software's realistic tree and plant creation and rendering technology that creates unique natural objects within a click. In addition, users of Curious Lab’s Poser can now have a direct import of static Poser Scenes for inclusion of complex animal and human models. Vue d'Esprit 4 will retail for $199.
