What is Bentley LumenRT?
LumenRT is a revolutionary real-time visualization software that enables you to bring your projects to life with cinematic quality images, videos, and real-time presentations of your infrastructure design models immersed within the context of lifelike digital nature. Used by many professional in the AECO industry, LumenRT easily delivers environmentally coherent models and can speed stakeholder buy-in for all your projects.
- Access rich content libraries
This easy-to-use software gives you access to rich content libraries containing plants, trees, people, vehicles, architectural objects, civil engineering elements, and more. Add lifelike windblown vegetation from a huge library or create your own custom plants using the Plant Factory application. Sculpt terrain formations and ground covers, render water features and photo-realistic skies in day or night scenes.
Populate models with animated people, animals, and moving vehicles using custom object animation paths as well as indoor and outdoor objects. Use the EcoPainter capability to paint or erase groups of objects in large populations automatically repositioned relative to the terrain.
- Speed stakeholder buy-in
Shorten the time required to gain stakeholder buy-in and secure project approvals by producing attention-getting presentations that enable people to experience design work in a natural world environment. Create stunning photo-realistic visualizations in seconds using the dynamic immersive visualization engine platform. This platform provides natural looking light and shadows, real-time global illumination, IES point and spotlights, lens flares, and luminous materials. Interactively adjust time of day, add lens flares, and apply depth of field while benefiting from highly accurate reflections,
anti-aliasing and motion blur.
- Create highly impactful designs
Make any design highly impactful with the ability to work seamlessly within any modeling and geospatial workfl ow, regardless of the authoring environment. LumenRT provides API integration with MicroStation, Autodesk Revit, Esri CityEngine, Graphisoft ArchiCAD, and Trimble SketchUp with workflows that ensure continued synchronization with native designs throughout work-in-progress while also supporting the import of additional content in standard 3D formats. Reliably export vehicle simulations easily add multi-lane traffic animation, add section planes, switch on and off layers, and leverage model intelligence for tasks such as labeling. Produce remarkable high-definition images, videos, and interactively navigable animated 3D LiveCubes. Share compelling presentations of your projects that can include camera animation paths and walk-through and fl y-through modes.
This technology has been jointly developed with e-on software, which is widely acclaimed in the digital content creation (DCC) market, where its VUE and PlantFactory products are a mainstay among computer graphics (CG) professionals in the media and entertainment, science, and education industries. E-on’s offerings have been used in the making of numerous blockbuster films, including Minions, Jupiter Ascending, How To Train Your Dragon, Avatar, The Hunger Games, The Avengers, Hugo, and Terminator.
