Autodesk Labs Technologies Project Newport - Sign up for this new technology

It's almost here. Sign up and get an email from Autodesk the moment this incredible new technology is released to the public. All things being equal, I honestly don't believe there is another architectural design software company that has anything close to the portfolio of Autodesk.

I also find it amusing that the same company that has some pretty incredible software out there, that their most popular program is a DOS-like line drafting program. How is it possible that this duality exists. The only thing I can compare it to is something like Porsche making a 911 Hybrid Turbo that does 0 to 60 in 3 seconds and their most popular product is a bicycle. Is it a good thing that every 911 comes with a bicycle included?

Anyway, Project Newport has been in the works for years now. It's pretty amazing for those of you who actually care about 3D and visualization of your projects.

Experience real-time 3D story-building technology designed specifically for architectural visualization and presentation. With game-engine technology and intuitive navigation techniques, Project Newport helps architects show their designs in context, rapidly explore design options, and create vivid and immersive 3D presentations in which customers and building owners can actively participate. Project Newport brings architectural designs to life by expressing design intent, understandably and in context, at every stage of a project.

No prior knowledge of 3D visualization, animation, or rendering is needed to learn Project Newport quickly. Every architect can create great-looking, easy-to-use presentations. Spend more time designing and less time revising. Avoid costly mistakes by communicating building information modeling (BIM) data in context. Bring together elements from multiple Autodesk applications. Add realistic, real-time sun and sky. Explore and share design options with camera animations and walkthroughs in either stylized or photorealistic views.

Maintain the fidelity of the data in your Autodesk® Revit® Architecture and Autodesk® 3ds Max® Design software ecosystem with integrated Autodesk® FBX®, ProMaterials™, and mental ray® technologies.
