2022.1 release notes

virtalis logo

Thank you for downloading Visionary Render 2022.1. This release introduces new features and addresses various issues reported by customers.

Key changes

Splines and spline helpers

The editing of splines has been improved in Visionary Render through the addition of spline helpers in the scene. Spline helpers are rendered by default and allow you to more easily adjust the shape of the spline. We have also made various improvements and fixes to tube splines and added support for gradients that show the curvature of the spline.

The user manual has been updated to include a new chapter on splines and spline helpers.

Improved Revit importer

The import method for Revit files has been revised. Revit models are now imported with greater fidelity to ensure that imported data structures are faithful to the input. The Revit manual has been updated to include descriptions of the new importer properties.

Cluster installation

Installing Visionary Render on a cluster is now easier to achieve as you no longer have to manually install the MSVC (Microsoft Visual C++) redistributable libraries on slave machines. The Visionary Render installer provides an option for the redistributable libraries on the master to be shared with the slave machines.
