Thank you for downloading Visionary Render 2022.3. The focus for this release has been three-fold, first we have implemented a new method to improve scene performance where there are high numbers of small meshes. Second, we have taken on some feedback and put emphasis on issues reported by customers. High priority issues which may have caused crashes with the animation sequencer have been covered, as well as various fixes which will improve customer experience and workflow have been implemented. Third, the importer libraries have been updated and new version support is reflected in a table below.
In this release we have improved the rendering performance for scenes which contain many thousands of small meshes. Visionary Render is now able to more fully utilise the capability of high-end GPUs without requiring complex CAD data to be simplified. Depending on the nature of your scene and hardware this can more than double the frame rate in some cases, compared to Visionary Render 2022.2.
There is a new option under navigation settings to enable snap rotate in immersive mode. This comfort setting is a movement style which may reduce motion sickness for sensitive users (Settings>Navigation>Immersive Snap Rotation).
Collaboration connection speed
The data sent and received over the network for users who already have the scene open has been reduced and the connection process is now much faster.
Import / Export library updates
Defects, or bugs, are an unfortunate, but inevitable occurrence in any software product. At Virtalis we work hard to maintain and improve the quality of our codebase and resolve as many reported issues as we can, as quickly as we can. We have identified and resolved 18 issues as part of our internal testing for the 2022.3 release. This number includes the 12 customer issues detailed in the below table.
