Artlantis

Artlantis meets all your needs when it comes to speed, ease-of-use, and high quality renderings and animations. The stand-alone rendering application chosen by more than 85000 architects, designers, space planners, interior designers, urban planners, and landscape architects in more than 80 countries.

Artlantis Versions

Available in two main versions, Artlantis offers a product line suited to different needs and practices. Artlantis Render is designed more for those who seek very high quality rendering (architects, interior designers, urban planners, landscapers, exhibition organizers, exhibitors, etc.). Artlantis Studio, on the other hand, is the ideal tool for anyone who wants very high resolution rendering not only for images, but for iVisit 3D Panoramas, VR Objects, and animations as well. A recognized leader in preview window technology, Artlantis is the rendering software used by architects, designers and urban design professionals in more than 80 countries.

Themed collections of materials, parametric textures, and 3D objects available on CDs and online round out the innovative Artlantis family product line. Designed especially for Artlantis by industry partners and independent designers, Artlantis Catalogues enable users to quickly and easily simulate life-like scenes in a realistic environment.

Artlantis - Interoperability with ARCHICAD

Interoperability with ARCHICAD

ARCHICAD exports the model in the Artlantis file format through its dedicated plug-ins. You can transfer the geometry, textures, perspective cameras, the sun, lights and layers. The plug-in offers you the possibility to update your second Artlantis file and take over the settings from the first one in case you need to change anything in the ARCHICAD model.
The Artlantis export plug-in is installed by default in ARCHICAD. You can find more specific information about the plug-in and a tutorial here.

Lighting and Neon Lighting

Exposure

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

IES Lights

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. For even greater flexibility, Artlantis 6 allows you to easily edit the brightness, color, direction and opening angle.

Pre-settings

Choose among many pre-set modes (indoor, outdoor, low light) and different definitions (speed, medium, quality), to quickly set the best results!

Ambient occlusion

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.

Site insertion

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. A revolutionary integrated tool allows you to add transparency to a foreground image directly in Artlantis to enhance the quality of your projects.

Laser projection

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.

Catalogue and 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. New selection features allow you to view recently used media, shaders and objects already in the project or those added to the selection. Thanks to the "drop-drop" tool, you can insert random media from the selection into the project with every click of the mouse.
