CityEngine is advanced 3D modeling software for creating huge, interactive and immersive urban environments in less time than traditional modeling techniques. The cities you create using CityEngine can be based on real-world GIS data or showcase a fictional city of the past, present, or future.
Build entire 3D cities
Create a massive city all at once instead of modeling each building individually. CityEngine powers rapid adjustments to the architectural style or other features of your city so you can easily create multiple design scenarios.
Better export to Unreal Studio (beta)
The Unreal Engine exporter (“Datasmith” format) of CityEngine now supports Unreal Studio 4.22, the latest version of the acclaimed tool for real-time rendering in architecture and design. We significantly improved the exporter to make it easier to bring the vast and rich CityEngine scenes into Unreal Studio. Highlights include support of (1) native Unreal landscapes for terrain elevation data, (2) physically based Unreal materials, and (3) workflows that require metadata on meshes.
CityEngine VR Experience now also for Oculus Rift
The CityEngine VR Experience is a tabletop virtual reality application for urban planning. It allows planners, designers, city officials, and citizens to immerse themselves in a CityEngine scene, and view, discuss, or modify possible development scenarios in ways that were not possible on regular computer screens or with physical models up until now. Besides many new features, usability improvements, and extensive new documentation, we added support for Oculus Rift headsets. Learn how to build your own CityEngine VR Experience.
Palladio, a CityEngine plugin for Houdini
Palladio started as a side project from an enthusiastic CityEngine developer who teamed up with a talented CityEngine artist to build a unique procedural modeling plugin for SideFX Houdini. By using Palladio, 3D environment artists do not have to leave their familiar Houdini toolset anymore to make use of the generative modeling power of CityEngine. With this release, we made Palladio easier to install, simpler to use, and more stable to work with. You can download Palladio here (available for Linux and Windows).
