Update assets in your standard Art tools (Maya, Photoshop, Max) automatically converts, compresses, and optimizes the content. Updates on all platforms, Instant feedback on light effects, materials, and modeling changes.

4

Real-time graphics

Always Next Gen Ready, Fastest high-end renderer, new features specifically designed for console platforms, Benchmark setting graphical performance, near- photorealism in indoor and outdoor environments, real-time special effects, scalable across multiple platforms,

5

Flow Graph

Visual editing system allows designers to control events, triggers and game logic in a vary user friendly intuitive way. Allows designers to create complex levels without needing to write a single line of code.

6

Integrated Vegetation & Terrain Cover Generation System

Vegetation behaves according to rules found in nature. Taking into consideration things like Real-Time shadows, density, precise placement based on ground slope angle and altitude. Automatic painting options are complemented with ability to position individual elements for full control.
