ArchMOD, using Crysis for architectural modelling
A piece of news from the Digital Urban blog, the ArchMOD project is an architectural visualization mod for the CryEngine 2 engine, based a non-game modification for Crysis aimed for use in Archviz and by a target audience of architects. Further aims include the simplification of interaction with the engine and the editor when building an interactive scene, model or even game level.
The strength of this exercise is based on what the developer of ArchMOD considers the advantage of CryEngine in this area; the fact that it can render pictures similary to what renderers like Vray, Maxwell and Artlanti can, but is far more WYSIWYG. Check out the website here and also witness the excellent and very impressive results of this in the video above.
