Compressed 3D Models Still Look Great with VizUp Reducer 2.2!

VizUp Technology unveils a new polygon reduction system that enables anyone to reduce the number of polygons in a complex 3D model up to 90% without much effect on its visual quality

VANCOUVER, Canada. - August 9, 2006: VizUp Technology today announces the unveiling of VizUp Reducer 2.2, a new product family, which embraces Standard, Professional and Enterprise edition. VizUp Reducer is an ad-hoc polygon reduction system that enables you to reduce the number of polygons in a complex 3D model while retaining the quality and appearance of the original. The end result of the reduction is a 3D model with a well-balanced level of details and size, which is perfect for the use in virtual reality and real-time visualization systems. The process of reduction is extremely simple and doesn't require any advanced knowledge. VizUp Reducer automatically picks all necessary parameters without any manual interference on your side.

VizUp Reducer has a refreshingly uncomplicated user interface, which consists of the 3D viewer in the center and a toolbar with all commands and options ready at hand. Once you loaded a model, you can compress it with a single click on the Reduce button on the toolbar. VizUp Reducer performs the compression automatically. The best thing in it is that a model is compressed for all possible ratios at once. This means you can see the effect of any compression level instantly without having to restart polygon reduction each time for 10%, 20%, 30%, and other ratios. Another good thing about VizUp Reducer is its unique ability to retain the original look of a model. VizUp Reducer doesn't change the coordinates of the vertices and it results in minimal distortions during texture mapping even at high compression ratios. You can examine the result of reduction in 3D from different perspectives and in different visualization modes. This includes displaying a model as a set of textures, a set of smooth surfaces colored according to the material properties, as an object consisting of flat polygons, as a wireframe, or as a set of vertices.

Version 2 of VizUp Reducer builds on the success of the previous release that saw a high customer adoption in 2005 and received favorable comments and recommendations from customers like the one that belongs to Stuart Williams from Virtuality. "I have tried out several commercial polygon reduction tools in the past, and this is easily as good or better than them. It's extremely simple to use and the polygon reduction is great. Very useful for simplifying models made with nurbs or metaballs. It reduced a high-poly vrml model from 617kb to 115kb with practically no difference in appearance. I had to check the wireframe view to be sure of what I was seeing."

VizUp Reducer's Features at a Glance:
• High quality of complex model optimization;
• Extremely simple and user-friendly;
• Optimization is performed automatically, no parameter tuning necessary;
• Decrease the number of polygons dramatically without loosing quality;
• Perform optimization only once - simultaneously for all possible reduction ratios;
• Visual control for model tuning during the process of optimization;
• Built-in 3D viewer is intuitive and lets you examine your model;
• File structure stays the same - comments, text format, etc. do not change;
• Supports VRML 2.0/97 and StereoLitho (.STL) file formats.
