Artlantis Render


Artlantis 6.5 Released!

Artlantis 6.5 offers a number of new features that maximize calculation speed and rendering accuracy.

Drawing on the concepts that made it the success it is today — the user-friendly interface and the power of its features — Artlantis meets all of your needs when it comes to speed, ease-of-use, and high quality renderings. The stand-alone rendering application chosen by more than 85,000 architects, designers, space planners, interior designers, urban planners, and landscape architects in more than 80 countries.

To go beyond still renderings with animations and virtual panoramas, check out Artlantis Studio.

Artlantis is compatible with ArchiCAD, Vectorworks, SketchUp, Revit and most other 3D CAD software programs.



Artlantis Render LogoArtlantis Render shines in the rendering of still images. It is known for it’s high quality photo-realistic renderings and fast rendering algorithims. Requiring no expertise in computer graphics, learning Artlantis is fast and easy. Thanks to its user-friendly graphical interface, designed to optimize its intuitiveness and guarantee unsurpassed working comfort, mastering Artlantis takes only a few hours.

Real-time preview – Artlantis’s founding concept – gives users continuous control of each change in the scene. While radiosity (global illumination) guaranteeing the realism of the scene, is known to use a lot of calculation time, Artlantis stands out as the only rendering software able to provide a quality / calculation time ratio as relevant in the preview as in the final calculation. Interactive navigation and management of the 3D database is specifically designed to manage scenes containing millions of polygons. Simply put: all Artlantis developments share the same goal: quality and optimal productivity.

Recognized and recommended by leading software developers, Artlantis communicates directly with ArchiCAD®, Autodesk Revit®, Vectorworks®, Trimble SketchUp Pro®, and Arc + ® …and has many import formats (DXF, DWF, OBJ, FBX and 3DS) used to process models designed with almost all 3D software, without any loss of information. In addition, the «Open with reference’ allows, whatever the exchange format, to make project updates.

Artlantis Studio contains all of the features of Artlantis Render plus an easy-to-use, fast animation engine. Studioexcels in the creation of animations and virtual panoramas with iVisit 3D.

Highlights of Artlantis Version 6

Physical Engine

Artlantis Rendering


To create stunning images, Artlantis 6 now includes its own built-in physical engine, emphasizing physical rendering quality, precision, material accuracy, and energy consumption.

White Model

During calculation, white model rendering changes all surfaces to white except for those that are transparent. Lights maintain their color for sophisticated environments.


Choose among many pre-set modes (indoor, outdoor, low light) and different definitions (speed, medium, quality), to quickly set the best results!

White Balance

White Balance allows you to adjust the dominant color of a scene to the ambient lighting. Simply set this new parameter to automatic color mode or select a reference color, which will be recognized as white in the 3D scene.

Ambient Occlusion

This new option in Artlantis allows users to display a global ambient occlusion to create virtual shadows in small areas where natural light doesn’t go. It brings more depth and relief to both interior and exterior scenes.

Lighting and Neon Lighting
By default, Artlantis offers 8 IES pre-set profiles. Artlantis 6 now allows you to import downloaded IES profiles from manufacturers’ websites. These files are used to simulate realistic illumination of your projects. For even greater flexibility, Artlantis 6 allows you to easily edit the brightness, color, direction and opening angle. Artlantis offers two illumination methods: Automatic Light Adjustment and ISO/Shutter. By choosing the Automatic Light Adjustment setting, the lights and neon power used in the scene are automatically adjusted to the sky and sun illumination. In addition, neon lights have been completely updated for this version with considerable gains in terms of quality and calculation speed.

Site Insertion

When using the site insertion feature, Artlantis 6 offers a new and simple projection process with more accurate calculations. After aligning the XYZ axis in the 2D view and in the preview window, the model is easily positioned on the background image. A revolutionary integrated tool allows you to add transparency to a foreground image directly in Artlantis to enhance the quality of your projects.
