ARTLANTIS 2021

A pioneer in architectural visualization and compatible with all the 3D modeling software on the market, Artlantis is the easiest and fastest solution for creating photorealistic renderings and animations.

A pioneer in VR imagery, Artlantis has conquered nearly 100,000 architects, interior designers, landscapers, urban planners, and space planners…in more than 110 countries. A CPU-based application, Artlantis is used by experts, advanced users and beginners alike, to simulate, present and communicate their ideas with striking photo-realism.

What’s New?

IFC Import

Artlantis 2021 enters the world of Open BIM! Known and recognized for its almost universal accounting, Artlantis 21 now imports the IFC format. This new performance, concerning the model’s geometry only, allows the Artlantis user to receive any model from an interlocutor using a modeler other than their own and, if necessary, to modify the design directly in their own working tool.

LUTs

Artlantis 2021 integrates LUTs, filters for modifying colorimetry and contrast in order to create a particular atmosphere or correct images in the preview and the final rendering.Artlantis 2021 offers a range of these filters by default. Should users wish to use any custom filter, they can import their preferred LUTs, which are available on various websites as free or licensed .CUBE files.

Easy Interface

With Artlantis 2021, you can choose the interface: the one offered by default or the new Easy interface. More refined in terms of settings, it has many predefined values ​​and allows you to modify the settings by level such as “high, medium or low”, for example. This approach makes it easier to understand settings, simplifies and speeds up scene-setting. Advanced users or beginners, all can use it according to their habits, their technical knowledge or their preferences.

MediaStore

With Artlantis 2021, Abvent launches a brand new MediaStore. Completely redesigned both in terms of search engine and ergonomics, its benefits are obvious:

  • Clearer and more readable interface
  • Faster navigation
  • Faster and simpler media search (tag system)
  • Direct access via the internet using an AbventID account
  • Available for versions 5, 6, 7, 2019 and 2020 of Artlantis…. and ready for future versions

Intuitiveness & Simplicity

Interface

Designed with an obvious and ergonomic interface, Artlantis is both easy and comfortable to learn and use. At all times, the necessary tools are at hand near the real-time preview window, which allows you to see each adjustment’s results.
Today the user can choose between the classic interface and the easy interface according to his knowledge and working habits.

Easy to learn

You don’t have to be skilled in computer graphics — learning and using Artlantis is easy and very fast. Artlantis is used by experts, advanced users and beginners alike to simulate, present and communicate their projects, by producing both high quality still images and animations with striking photo-realism in record time!

Unique and universal

Handling DXF, DWG, OBJ, FBX and 3DS formats, Artlantis is compatible with almost all 3D modelers currently on the market.

Specific plug-ins for ARCHICAD, Rhinoceros, Vectorworks, Autodesk Revit, SketchUp and Arc + allow exports to Artlantis.

Characteristics

Lighting

Artificial lights: easy to position and set the color, intensity or quantity.

IES profiles: you can import custom IES profiles and those of lamp producers.

Heliodons: environmental lighting, dependent upon the setting of the time, date and place (longitude, latitude).

Neon shader: simulates light emissive surfaces…

400+ media catalog

The Artlantis media catalog is rich with 3D objects and is set up intuitively for easy navigation.

Media packs are available for purchase through an integrated Media Store.

Shaders

Artlantis makes using shaders fast and easy. Add with a simple ‘drag & drop’ from the catalog onto the desired surface in the preview, you can dress surfaces with all the attributes of a given shader.

 

 

Texture mapping

Use your own textures as materials. Apply your own images with a simple ‘drag & drop’ from the catalog. Then, repeat them horizontally and/or vertically to cover the surface you have selected.

White model

By choosing the White Model, all surfaces change to white except for those that are transparent. Lights maintain their color for sophisticated environments.

White balance

White Balance allows you to remove unrealistic color casts and adjust the dominant color of a scene. Simply set it either automatically or to the desired reference color.

Ambient Occlusion

Create virtual shadows in small areas and increase the contrast of uniformly lit areas, adding more depth and relief to the scene.

Adaptive anti-aliasing

Smarter anti-aliasing makes it possible to detect the areas to be treated, optimizing calculations and reducing rendering times as a result, with no change in the quality of the image.

Post-Processing

Apply different effects to the current view and set the brightness, contrast, and color of a rendering. Save time and add effects, like grain, paint or pastel; highlight contours directly in Artlantis.

Render Manager

Optimizes the rendering calculation time: distribute your calculations across several computers of the local network (Mac/PC), in order to reduce the rendering time.
