News CEI announced today the latest release of its visualization product, EnSight Lite, version 9.0. This version is more affordable and easier to use. EnSight Lite is aimed at small- and medium-sized companies, and large companies looking to maximize their post-processing investment across the enterprise.

New improvements to EnSight Lite include: easier to use interface, cutting user time to reach common features; the use of keyframe animations, a method to control a virtual camera for movie sequences; and the ability to work with both 32-bit and 64-bit systems.

EnSight Lite is now much easier to use for those who are interested in exploring their data interactively. It will have twice as many functions tied to the computer's mouse buttons; part highlighting to show which parts are selected; and right-click menus preloaded with context-sensitive menus allowing users to post-process and visualize a model using only their mouse.

The addition of keyframe animations in EnSight Lite allow the user access to sophisticated motion control and output options for generating animations for either online presentation or video. All keyframe animation functions are controlled through an easy to use Quick Interaction Area, so users can edit their animations on the fly.

Craig Makens, director of sales and marketing at ThermoAnalytics, had this to say about the latest version of EnSight Lite, “It is a great tool for post-processing RadTherm transient images. The new keyframe animation feature allows engineers to generate complex vehicle fly throughs of virtual climate tunnels or natural environment simulations. It is imperative to my work that both RadTherm v9.2 and EnSight Lite v9.0 are available for 64-bit Windows, in order for me to analyze larger file simulations in less time.”

“We are excited to announce these new price and feature points that customers have been asking for. Now that 64-bit laptops and desktops are common, EnSight Lite makes perfect sense for the mainstream engineer, scientist, and researcher. Adding these new features to EnSight Lite gives our customers much more value for their money,” says Darin McKinnis, vice president of sales and marketing at CEI.

EnSight Lite supports every major CAE solver, with more than 60 interfaces for finite element, CFD, structural, crash, dynamics and hydrocode analysis. It runs on 32-bit and 64-bit platforms allowing users to post-process more data faster and works on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux machines. Follow this link to read more about EnSight Lite.

EnSight Lite version 9.0 is now available and is priced at $1,600 for a standalone commercial license and $400 for approved academic institutions. EnSight users can download the newest version from the website.
