 Artlantis 2.1
Accelerating performance
The complexity of geometries, the increasing number of objects, and the qualityof textures are constant challenges for developers aiming to accelerate thecomputing process. Speed has been a key goal for Artlantis since the initialreleases. Once again, this new release focuses exclusively on this issue topreserve Artlantis
leading role among the fastest rendering applications on themarket today.
Development highlights
1.
 
Enhanced support for multi-core processors2.
 
Geometry optimization3.
 
Enhanced light management with special focus on soft shadowsResulting in dramatic speed increases of six or even night times faster in somecases compared to version 2.0.3, the new, 2.1 version offers a more fluid designenvironment and a faster rendering calculation. Tests done on different platformsand for various scenes of still images, panoramas or animations prove the powerof this version.
Test results
1/ Enhanced support for multi-core processorsFurther algorithmic optimizations provide significant improvement for displayacceleration in the real-time preview window and for speed performance of thefinal rendering computing. Since version 1.2 was first released, Artlantis hasrecommended multi-core platforms, which, today, with their enhanced capacity,have become a standard option for version 2.1.

Artlantis file:- number of polygons: 46,265 polygons- number of objects: 69 objects with a total of 737,741 polygons
 
Compared Artlantis versions:- Artlantis Studio 2.0.3- Artlantis Studio 2.12/ Geometry optimizationThe optimization of the geometry enables Artlantis to open big models with lowermemory use and avoid messages like:
Run out of Memory.
In addition to aneasier handling of a larger number of polygons, this optimization also contributesto the acceleration of the rendering speed.The test below shows the attainable time differences in different hardwareenvironments between the two versions. The scene contains only one lightsource, in order to measure the speed resulting mostly from the optimizedgeometry.
