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.
The result of a dream shared by its authors and more than a hundred architectural firms in the world, Twinmotion is a visualization and 3D immersion software dedicated to architecture, urban planning and landscaping.
Extremely easy to learn
The interface with chronological tabs continuously guides you. From the perspective to orthographic views, you can observe your project from any angle. For even more precision, access the Object manager and its advanced features to customize your workspace.
Set your camera settings by choosing a focal, vignetting and possibly lens deviations. Change the color of your scene with 29 types of colors. You can also transform your scene by using a filter-like "white model", "Black & White" or "Sketch", etc.
BIMmotion is a free, self-executable file (mono or stereoscopic) that includes your project model and the Twinmotion engine. Without needing any other application, your customers and partners can view the project on their computers simply and instantly; change perspective, follow an animation, move in 3D freely or on a pre-defined path, and even access different project alternatives.
The Phasing function allows you to view the project at its various stages of progress. From breaking ground, through the structural work, to the landscape vegetation, the goal is to stage the evolution of the building. BIMmotion can, if you wish include these phases
When creating a project, you can either use the Twinmotion terrain library, or import your own file as a point cloud or a 3D mesh
Twinmotion offers a wide choice of materials that can adapt to the time of day or night. Adjust their UV scale, opacity, and their halo effects, illumination or brightness. More than 500 objects organized by category are available to dress your models.
Use the "Brush" tool to create a forest on a defined area, choosing and adjusting tree species, their size and densities. All vegetation is animated - 3D trees and blades of grass react to the wind and adapt to the seasons. Various rocks and 3D models of green walls are also available.
Crowds & Traffic
Define the path of your characters and vehicles with just a few clicks. On the Bezier curve you draw, you can choose different types of animated character (professional, casual mixed...) and their accessories, or adjust the number of traffic lanes, their density and the speed of the cars. The various vehicle models are also customizable (high beam, passenger, color).
Twinmotion import many model types directly (FBX, DWG, DAE, SKP, C4D, LI3). You can also merge multiple Twinmotion projects or other formats in a single scene. Imported files can be updated at any time, while keeping your modifications and materials.
The calculation time and display of your images and videos is 25% faster; real-time views are 200% faster with the new, lower display quality available in 'Draft' mode.
Twinmotion and BIMmotion can be controlled not only with the mouse and keyboard, but also with joysticks like those used with XBOX 360, XBOX ONE, Thrustmaster, Logitech, and PS4.
Twinmotion simplifies your daily life by managing updates; patches are automatically downloaded and applied to the software. The installation and activation of TEAM licenses are also simplified.
