Good news for all the PhotoView 360 fans!
What make me so looking forward to SolidWorks 2011 is….
Beginning with the release of SolidWorks 2011, PhotoView 360 will now be the standard photorealistic rendering solution for all SolidWorks software versions moving forward, which means, PhotoWorks will no longer be available. With the launch of SolidWorks 2011, SolidWorks software and PhotoView 360 will provide the equivalent rendering capabilities
that are now available in PhotoWorks, including, but not limited
(i) The creation and reuse of custom appearances, scenes, and decals :
I personally like this very much!
(ii) The ability to directly render different configurations, display states, and model changes:
This is good since we will able to save different color combination wthin a single file!
(iii) The production of rendered animations from a SolidWorks Motion study
Yay! This will make the animation much more lively!
(iv) The ability to use physical lights in renderings
Yup, current PhotoView360 still have limitation to create our own custom directional light , spot lights, etc…
(v) The scheduling of renderings to be completed later
Yeshhh! This can let the bundle of rendering images completed at off peak hours!
