**HANDLE MASSIVE 3D CITY MODELS VIA ALEMBIC**

 

GUID-7B4C5D32-AE09-4A47-9D56-4A11E48DBAF

 

We are pleased to announce a highly anticipated new feature to CityEngine, the Alembic exporter. The Alembic format is used by visual effects and animation professionals, and is well suited for handling massive 3D models (dozens of GBs).

 

As a result, for the first time since the origins of CityEngine in 2008, the complete procedural modeling power of CityEngine can be fully utilized out-of-the-box in commercial 3D tools. By using Alembic caches, it is now possible to batch generate tens of thousands of building geometries at the highest level of detail and visualize them in a renderer without the need for an advanced production pipeline anymore.

 

Alembic cache files written by CityEngine can be read by popular 3D tools such as SideFX’s Houdini, The Foundry’s Katana, and Autodesk’s Maya, where they work together with renderers such as Chaos Group’s V-Ray and Pixar’s RenderMan.
