Improved artificial lights
The artificial light sampling method, which is more precise, improves the energy diffusion of the light sources in the 3D scene and reinforces the reflection of the satin materials with a brighter gloss.
Smarter anti-aliasing makes it possible to detect the areas to be treated, optimizing calculation and reducing rendering times as a result, with no alteration of the quality of the image.
Artlantis optimizes the rendering calculation time with the new Render Manager. On your own computer, you use it like the “batch rendering” feature to launch the calculation of images, panoramas and animations locally. Thanks to an application installed on the other Mac or PC computers connected to your local network, the Render Manager scatters the renderings among all the network computers, dramatically reducing the calculation time as a result.
White Balance allows you to adjust the dominant color of a scene to the ambient lighting. Simply set this new parameter to automatic color mode or select a reference color, which will be recognized as white in the 3D scene.
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.
During calculation, white model rendering changes all surfaces to white except for those that are transparent. Lights maintain their color for sophisticated environments.
Choose among many pre-set modes (indoor, outdoor, low light) and different definitions (speed, medium, quality), to quickly set the best results!
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.
Artlantis is fully compatible with HDRi files for backgrounds and for global illumination. The “enhanced sky” function in the engine settings increases the photo-realism of the images.
By default, Artlantis offers 8 IES pre-set profiles. Artlantis 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.
In addition, neon lights have been completely updated for this version with considerable gains in terms of quality and calculation speed.
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.
When using the site insertion feature, Artlantis 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.
Alpha Mask Editor
This revolutionary tool allows you to add transparency to a foreground image directly in Artlantis to enhance the quality of your projects.
When creating an object, it is now easy to define its orientation.
A new vignetting effect is now available in post-process.
With the display filter, you can now quickly find one object’s materials, the objects in a view, the project’s shaders…
For even greater productivity, search fields have been added to the lists of each inspector.
On Mac, Artlantis is now compatible with Retina screens for high quality display.
A long-awaited change: Artlantis now makes it possible to AutoSave a file.
The KeyServer protection allows you to automatically start Artlantis on Macintosh, and as a service on Windows.

Welcome to Artlantis, the rendering software that make architects and designers’ dreams come true. Artlantis is the rendering software used by more then 85,000 architects, designers and urban design professionals in more than 80 countries.
With the launch of Artlantis 6.5 Abvent has created the latest version of the fastest, stand-alone 3D rendering application developed especially for architects and designers. Artlantis 5 combines the most advanced and efficient tools for rendering photo-realistic 3D projects, Artlantis interfaces directly with many leading architectural CAD and BIM software titles, such as ArchiCAD™, Revit™, SketchUp™ Pro, Vectorworks™, and Arc+™. Native support for many popular file formats, such as DXF, DWG, 3DS, DWF, OBJ, and FBX, allows Artlantis to seamlessly interact with nearly all leading 3D CAD and BIM software on the market today.
Available in two versions, Artlantis offers a product line suited to different needs and practices. Artlantis Render is developed for design professionals (architects, interior designers, urban planners, landscapers, exhibition organizers, exhibitors, etc.) who need to create very high quality still renderings. Artlantis Studio, on the other hand, not only creates exceptional, high-resolution still images, but also offers an enhanced suite of tools to generate dynamic renderings, such as iVisit 3D panoramas, VR objects, and animations, that provide interactivity with and motion through the project.
Like previous versions, Artlantis 6.5's productivity is based on a founding concept: real-time Radiosity preview. Regardless of the change in the scene settings (materials, lighting, environment), the preview is updated instantly. You control your work, you confirm your changes, and you run the calculation in high definition for your final image without wasting time.
New features in Artlantis 6.5
Artlantis 6.5 optimizes rendering calculation times with the new Render Manager. Similar to the earlier Artlantis “batch rendering” feature, Render Manager allows users to launch the calculation of images, panoramas and animations on their own computers. Thanks to an application installed on the other Mac or PC computers connected to their local network, the Render Manager scatters the renderings among all the network computers, dramatically reducing the rendering calculation time as a result. This time-saving feature is available in Artlantis 6.5 for an unlimited number of nodes, free of charge.
Preview now available in 'draft' mode
Artlantis has long been recognized as a leader in real-time preview window technology. Regardless of the change in the scene settings (materials, lighting, environment), the preview is updated instantly. Users can control their work, confirm changes, and run the calculation of the final image in high definition without wasting precious time.
For even greater productivity, Artlantis 6.5 now offers a choice between preview window display speed or high definition accuracy with its new “draft” mode, a particularly valuable preview option when working on a project. Users can switch back to normal mode at any time to display their scenes more accurately and photo-realistically.
Users can now export their Artlantis 6.5 projects in .tma format to communicate directly with Abvent's award-winning 3D immersion tool, Twinmotion 2016. With unmatched speed for modeling sites and reliefs, trees and plants, the flow of vehicles and people, Twinmotion is the perfect interactive tool to explore, explain and share in real-time the 3D environment of a project.
Artlantis 6.5 improves the photo-realistic quality of architectural renderings — new, realistic clouds are integrated in the physical sky, while the “God rays” effect is now visible behind glass surfaces.
SketchUp Pro 2017 to Artlantis 6.5 plug-in
Artlantis 6.5 now has the long-awaited feature of opening files saved from SketchUp 2017. The corresponding plug-in can be downloaded here.
Artlantis reads the latest versions of the most common file formats such as .dxf, .dwg, .dwf, .fbx or .obj. SketchUp files can be opened directly in Artlantis, which is a big step toward a direct data transfer between a modeler and an independent renderer.
Built-in plug-ins allow the many popular BIM and CAD software to export 3D models directly to the Artlantis file format:
