What's new in VRED 2020

VRED™ 2020 visualisation and virtual prototyping software introduces tools for superior interaction, improved rendering, enhanced interoperability and better scripting.

  • VRS supported viewing

    Leverage VRS for foveated and content adaptive rendering in virtual reality with Eye tracking.

  • SPEOS generated Rayfiles

    VRED now supports Rayfiles generated in SPEOS by ANSYS, enabling hyper-realistic visualisations of vehicle interiors and exteriors with highly accurate lighting simulation.

  • Camera/backplate matching

    Perspective match adjusts the camera viewpoint so the backplate image matches the scene. (video: 1.06 min.)

  • Substance source web shop

    Small web browser toolbar lets you access, download and use substance materials directly in VRED. (video: 53 sec.)

  • Cryptomatte renderpass

    Efficiently eliminate the tricky issue of automatically generating consistent ID mattes from render. (video: 1.08 min.)

  • Python constraints

    Create, remove and search for constraints in your scene. Change them and change target weights. (video: 0.53 min.)

  • Rounded edges in ray-tracing

    The additional shader effect modifies the shading normal near edges to give the appearance of round edges. (video: 1.13 min.)

  • Catia axis system import

    Import additional axis systems from Catia, and then create a transformation group with hidden co-ordinates.

  • Character use in scenes

    You can now move and position characters directly in VRED without needing third-party software. (video: 1.19 min.)

  • Multifile batch import

    Import different file types into VRED, set up specifications per file type and run the process in batch.

  • X-ray material type

    Add this material to produce a translucent effect to the surface with the ability to see what’s behind it.
