LucidShape Visualize Module Available Now

We are pleased to announce that the new LucidShape® Visualize Module is now available.

LucidShape Visualize Module

LucidShape's Visualize Module delivers high-speed photorealistic images of an automotive lighting system's lit appearance. Because the Visualize Module depicts all interactions between system geometry and light sources, it provides designers with a physically correct diagnostic tool for evaluating how a lighting system will be perceived by the human eye. This is particularly important for evaluating automotive components such as turn signals and brake lights. The Visualize Module is a fast, reliable engineering tool that enables designers to perform design checks and make improvements early and often in the product development process.

The Visualize Module delivers these key capabilities:

  • Supports environment sources for the integration of 360-degree, high-dynamic range (HDR) photographic environments into photorealistic visualizations. Includes all physical and optical properties for an immersive, accurate rendering of a lighting scene.

  • Combines LucidShape's luminance camera and backward ray tracing to perform rapid, high-accuracy luminance calculations and generate photorealistic images at multiple angles and viewing directions.

  • The speed of the Visualize Module's simulations gives designers the flexibility to rapidly evaluate their models at any point in the design process. The Visualize Module can also use LucidShape's GPUTrace feature to accelerate illumination simulations by orders of magnitude compared to multithreading capabilities.
