VRcollab LITE gets Screen Space Reflections (SSR), HDR Bloom and added realism for glass windows
VRcollab LITE v0.10.26, the latest version of the AEC-focused collaborative VR tool, features improved graphics, easier sharing of meeting links and a new organisation dashboard.
The graphics enhancements include Screen Space Reflections (SSR), which adds reflections, giving objects a glossier look; HDR Bloom, which adds a “glow” to reproduce an imaging artifact of real-world cameras; and an advanced windows (glass) setting that adds realism to glass windows and how light passes through.
The new release also makes it easier to invite others to join a VRcollab coordination, design review or presentation session. Previously, guests had to manually insert the code generated by the meeting host, but now meeting links automatically open the software.
Finally, a new organization dashboard helps managers track the team’s productivity and VRcollab usage.
VRcollab LITE can be integrated with many of the leading CAD/BIM tools and there are plug-ins available for Revit, Navisworks, Rhino, ArchiCAD and SketchUp. The developers are also working on a Revit Live Link, which is currently available as a beta feature
The software works with a range of VR headsets including the HTC Vive CE / Pro, HTC Vive Cosmos, Oculus Rift / Rift S and Windows Mixed Reality Series.
VRcollab LITE is available as a free 7-day trial.
