Newsletter 2: Builder IITSEC 2011
Pre-launch information for a select view
I would like to thank you for showing an interest in the upcoming launch of re-lion Builder. We have had a great end of 2011 and a successful I/ITSEC exhibition in Orlando early December, where we demonstrated the first preview release of re-lion Builder. Many thanks go to our hardworking development team; they managed to integrate terrain footprint technology just in time for the exhibition and we received good feedback on that. More about this technology can be found below.
At the end of the newsletter are some interesting downloads: the 4 most important benefits to use re-lion Builder, a tour along those benefits and finally, the video as was shown on I/ITSEC.
If you received this e-mail without being subscribed to our launch mailing list, be sure to visit the re-lion Builder product page and subscribe. In case you received this e-mail and want to unsubscribe, check the end of the mail on how to do this.Thank you,
CEO, re-lion BV
Where does re-lion Builder fit
re-lion Builder was originally envisioned as a standalone terrain database generator tool. During tests of re-lion Builder's commercial strategy with potential customers and suppliers of existing terrain database generators, it became clear that re-lion Builder also offers you an advantage when combined with existing terrain database generators like TerraVista and TerraTools. This allows you to upgrade terrain detail in an easy way.
For your convenience, I have included the diagram below. It provides an overview of the birth and updates of terrain database:
What is the Footprint technology
Do you also find it difficult to exactly line up the terrain to your 3D models or vice versa? Often, you will find seams and holes between your objects and the terrain surface. This can seriously distract people using your terrain database in their tasks.
Figure: terrain with hills before creating a road
Figure: the same terrain after creating a road with footprinting.
Notice the seamless connection.
Downloads for your pleasure
For those of you that did not or were not able to attend the I/ITSEC, I have included a small movie and some reading material that will be posted on our website when re-lion Builder is released.
