RevitUp: More Revit 2009 News- Cool New Rendering Technology - You've got to see this video!!!!

Autodesk also showed off a new technology under development, codenamed 'Newport.' Autodesk representatives prefaced the demonstration by asking 'What if visualization could be easy? What if it could be learned over lunch?' Newport was initially talked about at Autodesk University, but today we got a chance to actually see Newport in action.

Running on a system with multiple quad-core CPUs, Newport is a 'sandbox' for visualization that eliminates many existing limitations. This R&D application was able to render a Revit-based model placed into its real-world environment, with photorealistic materials and lighting and interactive motion and animation in real-time. It understands the Revit model. Users can dial in a stylistic scheme and then replace it later with a more realistic scheme. It can handle real-time presentations and HD-quality output.

I'll finish off this posting with a video of the Newport technology demonstration.


[Disclaimer: Remember that this is a technology demonstration only. This is not a product and may never actually be available as a product. Also please note that this video was shot from an LCD display using a handheld camera.]
