What’s New?

RAL Colours – Artlantis 2020 offers 243 codified colours and tints from the RAL Effect, RAL Design and RAL Classic colour charts, which are the defining paint standards in the world of architecture and building construction.

Denoiser Tool – Decrease or even cancel the noise from your renderings, typically produced by the reflection from shaders. Want a little noise in your image? Decide for yourself to activate this option or not. The Denoiser tool analyses the image’s pixels and reduces the noise.

3D Grass – The integrated Media catalog offers 4 new grass types and 6 updated types of 3D grass enhanced with new settings to adjust the colour of the grass tufts and apply density variations.

Portals Tool – A new optimisation setting for managing light in Artlantis. When using low settings for a fast calculation of your renders, this option improves the lighting of your indoor scenes and removes the noise from the image.
