Vue & PlantFactory R4
e-on software’s Q4 2019 quarterly release adds procedural material baking to PBR standards, cloud morphing, real-world terrain import, PlantFactory importers for 3ds Max and Maya (technology preview), 10 botanically accurate vegetation species, over 250 new content assets, and over 60 additional feature, performance and user experience enhancements.
Real World Terrain
This brand-new option allows you to select any location on the planet and extract the underlying terrain altitude data.
Cloud Morphing and Animated VDB export(1)
Morph two MetaClouds together. VUE will automatically create a smooth interpolation between the two cloud geometries and material looks. Cloud animations can now be exported as animated VDBs too.
PlantFactory Importer Plugins
These new plugins allow for loading, editing health, maturity and season as well as published parameters and converting native PlantFactory content directly within 3ds max and Maya.
Procedural Material Baking to PBR(1)
You can now bake and export the Metallic/Roughness PBR channels to textured maps from your procedural materials.
+ New Assets and Plant Species
We’ve added a new batch of over 250 3D assets comprised of atmospheres, materials, vehicles, animals, sample scenes, etc. 10 HD and LD – botanically accurate – vegetation species were also added to the PlantCatalog(2).
(1) Export and Integration Plugins are only available in Professional and Enterprise solutions
