CEI Upgrades Collaborative Visualization Software

Post Processing CEI's new EnLiten 1.6 3D geometry viewer and animation player includes a range of new and upgraded features requested by users who want an easy way to view, analyze and manipulate complex visualization scenarios from EnSight and EnSight Gold. EnLiten 1.6 is available for free downloading on the CEI web site.

The latest version of EnLiten offers smaller file sizes, greater control over model attributes, and new features such as demo mode, alpha transparency and fast display mode. EnLiten Gold 1.6 supports the same new VR features added to the recently released EnSight Gold 7.6 visualization software.

One of the major issues addressed by EnLiten 1.6 is the size of scenario files from EnSight and EnSight Gold. New polygon reduction functions in EnSight and EnSight Gold allow users to quickly and easily reduce polygon counts for scenario files to be used in EnLiten. Polygon counts can be reduced to 10 percent of the original size without significant image degradation. This makes it easier to import, run and interactively manipulate files within EnLiten.

EnLiten 1.6 also includes a new feature called "demo mode." It allows a user to play through a series of EnLiten scenario files previously created in EnSight or EnSight Gold. Demo mode is a good tool for displaying a series of different models during a presentation, or automatically presenting work in an ongoing animation loop at an exhibit.

On the VR side, EnLiten Gold 1.6 benefits from improvements included in EnSight Gold 7.6. These include a time slider, a new variable list, and a "color a part" command in the heads-up macro (HUM); the ability to display annotations and plots on VR walls; and new information on VR configuration in the user manual.

Visit the EnLiten home page for more on features, support and free downloads.
