Autodesk VIZ software is the ideal 3D visualization companion tool for Autodesk customers. Based on the power of Autodesk 3ds Max software, VIZ enables architects and designers to create photorealistic 3D renderings and animated 3D imagery. Powerful DWG import capabilities enable Inventor, AutoCAD, AutoCAD Architecture, and Revit software users to transform imaginative designs into breathtaking visualizations. The newly integrated mental ray 3.5 rendering engine includes radically simplified setup and a physically accurate sun/sky system for faster, more realistic renders. Dramatic performance improvements, integrated video and learning tools make it easier than ever to pick up and communicate your vision.
