Video Tutorials and In-Depth Manual

You won’t feel lost inside of Live Interior 3D thanks to the video tutorial course and the in-depth user manual. While both are available on www.belightsoft.com, video tutorials can also be launched from inside of the program.

Live Interior 3D is also available in Pro Edition! ★

Pro-only Features:

● Unlimited number of stories (2 stories with a loft in Standard Edition).
● Export movies in HDTV quality (up to 1920 x 1080 at 60 FPS).
● Export interior views in very high quality (up to 3360 x 2400 with custom sizes).
● QTVR panorama views with high density (up to 1024 x 768).
● Pro Edition features a Light Editor, Wall Designer, Advanced Material Editor and Edit in Google SketchUp ™ feature.

Cons

  1. This app is complex enough that you need to watch all the tutorials in order to know how to use this app but of course it’s necessary
  2. Google 3D Warehouse search may be limited to popular 3D model, where’s ikea’s 3D model? 😀

There’s a pro version too at $129.99 for the pro-only features!

This is a dream come true for architect, interior designers & home owners to design their dream home! If I am moving to a new home, I wish to create my own dream home too using this software.

I got a feeling that the property agents of tomorrow will also love to get hold of the pro version & create a HDTV quality video of the properties they are selling and show off to their potential customers on iPad or television in their show room.

It may be slightly complex to work with it but it’s powerful enough to create any interior designs you like, I wondered if you can use this to create a 3D game materials (pro version)

For a start, the standard version is sufficient for most interior designers students!
