One of the key challenges in utilizing 3d assets to create imagery for consumer-oriented solutions is immediate visualization of multiple product variations. Product designers and marketers want to show every possible option to the customer or potential client, however the costs of creating multiple versions of the assets becomes very labor intensive and expensive.
With LuSt our goal is to put the control of the rendering in the users’ hands. Product variations are created by the user through selection of product options and the environments they want the client to experience. The image is then created on demand and delivered to the user. Now consumers, advertisers, marketers and designers can view and interact with 3D assets in realtime, with photographic quality, to create their own images from any location using PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, or any Android based phones and tablets. This is the power of LuSt's 3D Rendering as a Web Service (3DRaaS).TOP
LuSt is built on a scalable server model that utilizes CPUs for rendering, leveraging the low cost and multi-thread support of modern CPUs. The Luxion render engine is very efficient, built to run on everything from 3D workstations to notebooks. This makes the server requirements very cost effective in that LuSt has low memory requirements and scalable CPU assignment to support many users per server. LuSt also supports both Windows and Linux clustered platforms, so the software runs on systems that your team is already using and familiar with. On the client side, we have designed the LuSt API based on open standards, supporting integration with any language that can interface with JSON and REST.TOP
