New features include a software development kit, multi-touch navigation, and easier asset re-use.
RTT says there are more than 60 new features and enhancements in DeltaGen 12, the latest release of its flagship 3D visualization software. DeltaGen is popular with automobile and aircraft manufacturers, luxury goods makers, and similar high-ticket products with strong visual appeal.
DeltaGen specializes in photorealistic display of 3D CAD data with real-time interaction. It processes data from all professional CAD systems to create images, films, and animations to support use cases from design and development to marketing and sales. DeltaGen users reduce the need for physical prototypes and increase access to decision making.
The new version, DeltaGen 12, offers a variety of new effects for artistic composing and post production including motion blur, lens flare, sun shafts, render passes or flexible real-time light and shadow settings. The new camera model enhances a real photography approach through provision of sensor sizes, focal lengths, and shutter speeds.
RTT says the new release also offers a performance increase through easier scene building and increased reusability of data. Time-to-asset is faster through unseen performance increases for offline rendering and real-time ray tracing, including global Illumination.
RTT now offers a software development kit (SDK) for DeltaGen, allowing users to customize the standard feature set and develop their own tailor-made extensions.
RTT also introduces RTT Xplore DeltaGen, the first multi-touch navigation tool that facilitates the presentation set-up and makes interacting with a scene like browsing a web page.
RTT also provides a custom version of DeltaGen for Siemens PLM’s Teamcenter, which is also updated to release 12. The Teamcenter update includes an enhanced metadata concept, quick update processes and customized queries for search, filter and sorting.
Named customers of DeltaGen include Adidas, Audi, BMW, Daimler, EADS, Electrolux, Ferrari, General Motors, Harley-Davidson, Porsche, The North Face, and Volkswagen.
