The EcoSystem revolution
Instantly populate your scenes with hundreds of thousands of wind-swept plants, rocks, objects or animated meshes. Interactively paint, erase and modify EcoSystems.
Animate SolidGrowth plants with breeze and wind, globally or per-plant. Breeze settings include random pulsations, gusts of wind and fluttering of leaves. Add omni and directional ventilators for local wind effects.
Procedural terrains can be stretched to any size, yet display an unlimited level of detail. More detail is dynamically added closer to the camera.
Animate all atmospheric elements (shifting volumetric clouds, twinkling stars, fog, haze, sunlight, etc
Spectral atmospheres automatically react to the position of the sun, for ultra-realistic sunsets and time lapse animations.
Standard keyframing and motion design
Use standard animation tools like automatic or manual keyframing, time curves, move/copy/paste keyframes, tangents & interpolation, look-at constraints and ease in/out.
The Motion Designer automates the animation process for various types of vehicles by accurately following terrain elevations and adding secondary motion like spin, bank and vibration.
High-end rendering power
Light your animations with area lights, GI, radiosity and HDR image-based lighting. Speed-up render times with illumination baking, fast soft shadows, 2.5D motion blur and full network rendering.

Vue xStream - the Integrated Solution
| || || |
Darkside Animation, a UK based SFX studio, was commissioned to recreate an animated sequence for a High Definition special called "Volcano Fire and Ice", a co-production between Mentorn and The Discovery Channel.
Darkside created a digital landscape with Vue 5 Infinite and used LightWave to integrate digital smoke in the footage.
Vue is an awesome software! So much detail can be created in just and then altered quickly. You can't help but smile with so much power at your disposal!
