Autodesk’s answer to realtime rendering from Revit is continuing its steady development. Now known as
Autodesk Revit Live (formerly Autodesk LIVE), the new features include being able to choose visual styles for RPC, and support for Revit LT.
Online release notes:
Level of Details geometry generation and material instancing have been added to the LIVE Service to enhance performance when working with large models and/or virtual reality.
The handle used to move and rotate the Minimap has been replaced by using the Controller Grip buttons. This provides a more natural and instinctive way to move, rotate, and scale your Minimap model.
People Styles and Animation
You can choose between three visual styles for the RPC characters imported from Revit as part of your scene.
Characters have subtle animation that can be turned on or off.
Characters can be hidden or made visible.
The view name is part of the default header.
The scene’s header is editable.
Texture orientation and offsets are consistent with what is set in Revit.
Customer texture files placed in C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Autodesk Shared\Materials\Textures folder are used in LIVE service to generate the LIVE models.
Presentations published from scenes prepared from the same Revit file but different 3D views no longer overwrite each other.
Revit LT support
LIVE is available for Revit LT.
