Autodesk VRED Products

3D visualization and virtual prototyping software

VRED 3D visualization software helps automotive designers and engineers create product presentations, design reviews, and virtual prototypes with realistic materials, physical camera settings, engineering tools, and even surface analysis modes. Use Digital Prototyping to visualize your ideas, evaluate your designs, and move from physical to virtual prototypes in real time.

 



Data preparation & navigation

Import Alias layer structure

Simple User Interface
VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL
The new Simple User Interface helps casual users create imagery more quickly.

Asset Manager
VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL
Create predefined asset libraries with the new Asset Manager module.

Camera collision detection
VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL
Navigate through your virtual space more easily with a camera that can now recognize and avoid colliding objects.

Integrated file converter
VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL
Import a wide variety of file formats with the integrated DirectConnect CAD converter.

GeometryEditor
VRED PROFESSIONAL
Set surface normals and split objects according to specific degrees with the GeometryEditor.

Scripting API and command terminal
VRED PROFESSIONAL
Use the scripting API and interactive command terminal to make extensive customizations to VRED Professional.

Evaluation workflows

Alias curvature shader
VRED PROFESSIONAL
Now use the same curvature shader evaluation mode that is available in Alias industrial design software.

Visual simulation
VRED PROFESSIONAL
New visual simulation features help you better understand lighting distribution and let you define color spectrums on a mathematical basis.

Measurement, grid, and ruler tools
VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL
Accurately evaluate model size and proportions. VRED includes tools that help you measure in 3D space, plus a reference grid and ruler to provide context.

Clipping module
VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL
Use 3D clipping on digital data, polygons, and even on native NURBS data.

Analytic rendering modes
VRED PROFESSIONAL
Analyze 3D surface shape, quality, and continuity. Access multiple analytical rendering modes, including isophotes and zebra stripes.

Gap Analysis tool
VRED PROFESSIONAL
Evaluate the fit between adjacent surfaces with the Gap Analysis tool.

Annotations
VRED PROFESSIONAL
Attach annotations directly to a 3D model during an interactive review.

Presentation

Oculus Rift support
VRED PROFESSIONAL
Experience designs with a virtual reality head-mounted display.

VRED app
VRED PROFESSIONAL
Remotely control a VRED scene from any mobile device.

Animation module
VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL
Create keyframe animations interactively in real time. Simulate motion sequences and produce moving images.

Variants and VariantSets
VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL
Present different configurations of your 3D model using Variants and VariantSets.

Display options
VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL
VRED Design supports a wide range of stereo modes. Additional advanced modes are available in VRED Professional.

Conferencing and collaboration
VRED PROFESSIONAL
Synchronize two or more VRED Professional instances to show the same scene.

Rendering

TrueNURBS
VRED PROFESSIONAL
Build your own NURBS topology or rebuild an existing one.

Spectral rendering
VRED PROFESSIONAL
Achieve color correctness with spectral rendering, and capture realistic dispersion effects with wavelength-based spectral rendering.

Multiple rendering modes
VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL
Take advantage of a wide range of rendering modes that deliver different levels of display quality and speed.

Render passes and render layer
VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL
For additional post-processing, you can export your render passes for further adaptions in separate image processing software.

Sequencer
VRED PROFESSIONAL
Organize complex batch processes and execute them sequentially, on a single machine or in a CPU cluster environment.

Online and offline rendering modules
VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL
Shorten rendering time by adding an offline rendering cluster module to VRED Design or an online rendering cluster module to VRED Professional.

Visual setup

Physical camera settings
VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL
The camera module’s physical parameters—focal length, shutter speed, f-stop, and depth of field—make elaborate post-processing unnecessary.

Measured materials
VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL
Use measured materials to visualize realistic material behavior based on captured material data.

Layered glass material
VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL
Single-sided objects can now have a simulated thickness in order to achieve the appropriate index of refraction (IOR).

Realistic materials
VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL
Use a wide range of photorealistic material types such as glass, car paint, and metal.

Powerful lighting options
VRED, VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL
Easily control lighting with a variety of features.
Displacement mapping
VRED DESIGN, VRED PROFESSIONAL
Efficiently simulate highly detailed surface structure based on texture information, in real time.

Subsurface scattering
VRED PROFESSIONAL
Accurately simulate the translucent behaviors of materials such as skin, milk, wax, and plastic.
