HVE, HVE-2D & HVE-CSI Version 9.12 - Now Available
(updated June 5, 2013)

Status of Version 9.12
- - Now Available

Release Date - - June 5, 2013

The list of new features, enhancements and capabilities found in Version 9.12 includes:

Improved Scene Rendering

Two changes have been made to provide for a more realistic appearance of the event at the time, date and location set in the Environment Information dialog:
  • The vehicles color (material) attributes have been modified to improve vehicle rendering.
  • The lighting for a scene now comes directly from the current sun position. Previously the viewer was flooded with additional lighting from an extra light source positioned behind your view, which is now turned off by default.

Check out the screenshots below for an example:

The top screenshot shows the rendering improvements provided by Version 9.12. The Environment Information dialog indicates the creash occurred at 1635 on 09/21/2010 in Bannockburn, Illinois. Note the contrast between the dark and light sides of the vehicles and buildings in the scene due to the position of the sun as the only light source for the time, date and location indicated.

The bottom screenshot is from the same event shown in Version 9.10. Note how the whole scene is flooded with extra light.

Higher Definition Color Mapping for Video

The Video Creator now produces video using 32 bits per pixel, an increase from the previous 16 bits per pixel. The result is higher definition color mapping and improved rendering of scenes with fog. (Note: This effectively doubles the size of the resulting video file.

Users of Version 9.10 may download a set of Patch Files to update their installation to Version 9.12. Please visit the Support Downloads section of this website for more information.
