Vivien 2013, made by CAST (also makers of award-winning wysiwyg lighting design software) is the most comprehensive sales, catering, planning and event design tool on the market that easily produces eye-popping event designs, 3D virtual room layouts, and photorealistic renders for the full spectrum of event professionals who sell, plan or work in the special events and meetings industry. Vivien 2013 is fast, intuitive and easy-to-use.
Vivien 2013 uses several wizards that make all complex repetitive tasks fast and easy. For example, you can build an entire room -- no matter how large -- fill it with tables, chairs, and special lighting effects in less than two minutes. Think of how impressed a [potential] client will be if you can deliver a really virtually real photo of their event to them by the end of a sales call. Use your mouse in Vivien 2013 to quickly lay out pipe & drape with the ease of a few clicks. Another wizard, the Environmental Lighting tool, means you can design an outside event anyplace on planet at any future date and time of day/night and capture authentic light conditions. You can even introduce the potential impact of rain, cloud, or fog. Use Vivien 2013’s Guest Management tool to seat and organize thousands of guests with just a few clicks, including RSVP status, meal choices, notes, and other information to aid in costing, managing and producing a very successful event.
Vivien 2013’s library of tens of thousands of proprietary industry-specific objects and textures, augmented by several thousand items from leading event furnishings manufacturers AFR, CORT Furnishings, and Backdrops Beautiful, make its object Library the most powerful electronic catalogue in the business. Vivien 2013 can also import room and event drawings from AutoCAD, SketchUp, and from Google’s free 3D Warehouse at http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/. Use all Vivien’s tools to win customers over by showing and then delivering to them exactly what they wanted – and this is a key factor for building repeat business. Vivien 2013 makes any business more productive, more profitable, more professional.
What are Vivien 2013’s new features?
- Virtual View Selection: Making beautiful lighting pictures for the client just got SO much easier. Now simply grab lighting fixtures right inside Vivien’s Virtual View and highlight your design using lighting looks – fast and easy. This way your customers really get the look and feel.
- Drawing Purge: If in the big, big event plans your Vivien files become very large and heavy, by using Vivien 2013′s powerful Purge tool, you can clear the drawing of old imports, renders, library custom items and more characteristics (you aren’t relying upon) to make the file smaller and easier to move around. No need to waste time pulling huge files from the server anymore; keeps you truly mobile.
- Layer Merge: For dealing with an enormous file from a client or a convention centre with lots of drawing layers, Vivien 2013 enables you to merge some of those Layers together so you can better manage the drawing and make things less confusing.
- CAST has also made some serious improvements to Cameras, Camera Paths, Camera Targets, the Event Info Wizard, Camera Path Editor, and much, much more. All of Vivien 2013’s improvements are geared to making event designs work faster.
