Orad Hi-Tec Systems, leader in video and graphics solutions for the
broadcast market, will unveil 4Designer and RenderEngine7, the next
generation of its real-time graphics authoring software this NAB at
As the successor to the award winning 3Designer,
4Designer offers not only new capabilities that streamline the graphics
creation workflow, but also a complete overhaul of the user interface
and features based upon customer feedback.
RenderEngine7 are native 64-bit applications which allow artists to take
full advantage of todays' computing environments to build complex
graphical content. New workspace layouts support high resolution /
multi-monitor desktop displays that are common in most design
departments and give designers the flexibility to arrange the user
interface according to their requirements.
4Designer is geared towards real-time on-air graphics creation from humble SD, through HD, UltraHD and large scale video walls.
user interface provides an improved object tree with material and
texture previews, object isolation that lets the designer focus on the
elements currently being edited both in the tree and in the preview.
preview features include a multi-camera local preview which gives
artists multiple working cameras for designing complex graphics; for
virtual studio designers, this multi-camera preview allows them to
easily realize all the camera angles used in a production without
requiring a connection to the virtual studio.
Master animations reduce the time spent sequencing animation playback
in controllers by allowing designers to combine different timelines
into master animations that can be controlled independently. Coupled
with the new export control designers can precisely time the way data is
sent into a scene during production without needing to replicate this
timing in the production controller.
File import options have been
greatly extended to include industry standards FBX, LWO, X3D, 3DS, DXF,
VRML and Collada, so that externally generated content can be easily
incorporated in the production.
In addition to huge performance
increases, RenderEngine7 brings a host of new capabilities, including
real-time motion blur; a new shader pipeline for full-screen visual
effect assignment during production and new geometry objects that
further extend the modeling options for the designers.
"4Designer is the direct result of feedback from our customers and
designers, and delivers many capabilities that not only allow artists to
realize more creative real-time graphics, but to help improve their
day-to-day workflow and make their lives easier. We listened and the
answer is in the new name - 4Designer,"Martin Appleton, Product Manager.
