Free Personal Learning Edition of Isotropix Clarisse is available at: http://www.isotropix.com/index.php?to=products. It looks like a very promising software.

I wanted to see how Lumion would perform with one of the test scenes and here is the result:



As PLE edition of Clarisse can not export the scene I have created a similar scene with the supplied models. Lumion rendered the scene very beautifully and the results look impressive  (except the moon which is pixelated, most probably a bug).

Cool stuff.
Bit bumped by their prices though.
Will download the PLE too and see just how 'different' things are.

i'm going to try it too. look like Premiere/after effect workspace, and i like the fact you can change the workspace, and always have acces to the position/rotaion of object for exemple. think Lumion is a bit restrained and it's sometimes painful. But it's good to see other soft, and it can be only better to lumion  :-D

5bln polys in realtime does sound kinda charming.
What's the catch? There's gotta be a catch right?

Nice looking GUI.  Reminds me a little of TM (RIP).

For rendering though you need one of those fastest on the planet PC's, fastest you can get i7 or Xeon with bucket loads of RAM, but even those are getting cost effective now.

Interoperability seems to be a current issue.  The background is heavily Lightwave (developers background), and only support LWO format, so it might be nice for a studio that has a Lightwave foundation and pipeline. 

Focus is stated on web site towards high end studios and removing some of the pipeline bottlenecks, but all you do is change to a Maya/Max, or maybe Cinema or even Modo (key staff from LW anyway) platform, and throw in a bit of Houdini or Messiah for good measure.

There's also no real animation (at present anyway) as far as could see, there's no mention in the Help docus about support for vertex, skinned, blending and morphing.  The only animation is transform and a procedural deform, so not sure what character anim can come in from LW.

Nevertheless, interesting to see how it progresses, not too keen on the additional maintenance fee to really get the bug fixes and clean-ups.

Played with it for a bit.
Fun stuff.
Not fun enough though.
