+ Autodesk had announced the Global launch of VIZ 2008, a 3D visualization software purpose-built for architects, technical designers, and visualization specialists. What's unique about this VIZ release is that it has inherited the dramatic viewport performance improvements from 3ds Max 9 along with the new mental ray sun/sky and architecural & design shader. Plus, it has Autodesks latest improvements in interoperability with DWG - which represent a major improvement over prior releases. Viz 2008 Performance enhancements increase interactivity with high-density geometry and complex scenes, and improve file I/O, working with splines, geometry modelling, viewports, and xref. Dozens of integrated tutorials make getting started with VIZ easier than ever.
