Abvent releases Artlantis 6.5

Abvent has released Artlantis 6.5, the latest version of its architectural rendering software, adding a physical sky system, a new render manager, and the option to export projects to Twinmotion.

New rendering and project export options
The first major update to the software since Abvent 6.0 was released just under two years ago, Abvent 6.5 adds a handful of new rendering features, including a physical sky system for more photorealistic output.

There is also a new Draft render mode for previews and other situations when speed is more critical than image quality; and a new render manager for launching distributed renders across a local network.

The update also makes it possible to export Artlantis projects to real-time visualisation tool TwinMotion, which Abvent acquired with original developer KA-RA in 2015.

Pricing and availability
Abvent 6.5 is available now for Windows and Mac. The Render edition, designed for still images, costs €500 (around $590); the Studio edition, which adds support for animations and panoramas, costs €990 ($1,065).
