What's new in Vue 2016 R2

360° VR Panoramas

VUE Studio 2016 allows you to render 360 degrees panorama, as static images or animations. They are compatible with all of VUE's Render Options, such as High Dynamic Range (HDR) for instance.

When rendering a VR panorama, VUE Studio 2016 offers to automatically and perfectly level the camera to avoid unwanted distortion.

Rendered VR panoramas are automatically recognized by Facebook, YouTube (and other panoramic compliant platforms) as 360° images or videos.

Other User Experience Improvements

VUE Studio 2016 R2 also introduces a list of UX/UI improvements, such as:

Terrain modeling:

  • "Blend Terrain with Image" automatically modifies the Heightfield Terrain function graph (instead of modifying the terrain Heightmap).
  • Simplified "Resample Terrain" replaces "Resize Terrain", to update terrain resolution without changing its size within the scene.

User Interface:

  • "Interactive slider changes" option now also affects the mouse wheel for more dynamic visual display of your modifications in real-time.
  • Improved visibility in viewports thanks to reworked wireframe selection colors.
  • The User Interface is now locked when downloading an object or a scene from the extra content.

Materials:

  • Easier access and edition of multi-material thanks to sub-menu hierarchy display.

VUE is a 64 bit application, designed for the 64 bit versions of Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 and Intel Mac OS X platforms.

Like all 3D packages, it is highly demanding in terms of computer power. Although the application is totally multi-threaded to ensure the smoothest possible response, you have to realize that there is a lot going on when you work in VUE.

Please note that using VUE on a system carrying the below specification may result in slow response time and longer render times!

Please read further on for recommended minimal specification for an optimal VUE experience.

Macintosh

  • Mac OS X v10.6+ 64bit,
  • 2GHz Intel processor or faster,
  • 1GB of free RAM,
  • 200 MB of free Hard Disk space,
  • 1200x768 in 65K colors/16 bits (24+ bits recommended).

Windows

  • Windows 7/Windows 8/Windows 10 64bit,
  • 2GHz Pentium IV or better processor,
  • 1GB of free RAM,
  • 200 MB of free Hard Disk space,
  • 1200x768 in 65K colors/16 bits (24+ bits recommended).

Note: VUE Studio 2015 installed on a multi-core CPU computer will use a maximum of 8 CPUs on a 64 bit OS.

Recommended System Specs

  • Windows 64 bit (Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10), Mac OS X v10.10
  • Multi-core CPU (Intel QuadCore, Core I7, or Mac Pro), AVX compliant (windows)
  • 4GB+ of RAM,
  • 4GB+ of free Hard Disk space (on the drive hosting the OS),
  • An OpenGL accelerated video board (see below for optimal compatibility)

Supported Video Boards

VUE Studio 2016 includes an automatic configuration tool that will set all OpenGL options just after install, for optimized previewing on your video board / driver.

Any reasonably recent video board (typically less than 3 years old) with at least 1GB of dedicated VRAM and up-to-date drivers should allow you to get the most out of VUE's OpenGL engine.

If you run into any OpenGL issues, try disabling background draw and antialiasing in the Options panel. Worst case scenario: you can always run VUE in software OpenGL mode.  
  

Warning: Laptops using Nvidia's Optimus or ATI's BinaryGFX technologies may present severe OpenGl problems. We recommend that users deactivate this option when running VUE!
