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. - January 21, 2008: VizUp Technology today announces the unveiling of VizUp 2.5.1, 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 is its unique ability to retain the original look of a model.
