Key features from this release

Path Tracer

Create final-pixel imagery comparable to offline renderings, including compromise-free global illumination, physically correct refractions, super-sampled anti-aliasing, and much more, with the new Path Tracer.

This DXR-accelerated*, physically accurate progressive rendering mode can be easily enabled in the viewport with a single button push, or used to output stunning still images and panoramas, right from Twinmotion, in minutes. It can also be used to render orthographic plan views with shadows.

* The Path Tracer requires Windows DirectX 12 and a GPU that supports DXR real-time ray tracing.
See this article for full requirements.

Twinmotion Cloud Early Access for all!

Share your projects with any stakeholder anywhere in the world! With just a basic computer, tablet, or smartphone and a web browser, users can view and interact with a presentation or panorama running on a high-end GPU in the cloud. With this release, this feature is now available to all users as part of the Early Access program, including educational licensees and trialists.

In addition, new Panorama Sets enable you to curate specific points of view for a review, rather than providing a fully navigable scene. It's also now easier to share links and update presentations.

 

HDRI Skydome

Used in conjunction with the Path Tracer, the new Skydome feature enables you to create more realistic skies and lighting for convincing exterior shots. We've provided an extensive library of 285 skies to select from, or you can use your own custom HDRI texture.

Datasmith multi-sync support

Simultaneously synchronize files from multiple CAD tools into the same Twinmotion scene via Datasmith. For example, you might have a landscape in Rhino and buildings in Revit; now, you can continue to edit each while viewing the combined result in Twinmotion.

LiDAR point cloud import

We've added the ability to load and display laser-scanned data from popular formats, typically acquired in the context of architectural or industrial applications with scanners such as Leica or Trimble. This enables you to view a project in the context of existing landscape and/or structures.

Thousands of new assets

We’ve added two more categories from Quixel Megascans, bringing over 200 new 3D plant species, each with multiple variants, and over 2,000 new decals to Twinmotion. We’ve also added the ability to select which variants from each 3D plant set are used.

In addition, there are nearly 150 new interior and exterior furniture assets.

Meanwhile, it's now possible to use custom Reflectivity, Glow, Bump, and Metalness textures with both standard decals and the new Quixel Decals library.

 

3Dconnexion SpaceMouse support

We've added support for 3Dconnexion SpaceMouse devices, which offer fluid and efficient 3D navigation, easy access to frequently used commands, and seamless switching between different 3D applications.

Full-screen mode editing

It’s now possible to perform various editing actions such as transforming, copying, pasting, and deleting objects while in full-screen mode, enabling you to make changes to a scene while remaining in an immersive environment.

Center pivot & Local axis

We’ve added the ability to edit pivots of objects and to perform actions in local space, enabling you to more finely control the translation, rotation, and scaling applied to your objects.
