2021.3 Release Notes

Thank you for downloading GeoVisionary 2021.3. This release is focussed on further enhancing the performance of the software, particularly on complex scenes comprising a lot of layered data, something commonly experienced in practical use.


We’ve also introduced support for the Microsoft Hololens 2 and created a editable text box feature. Beyond this, we’ve been doing the usual work on maintaining the code and resolving issues reported from the field.


Key Changes

Performance

Our focus has been on ‘in scene’ performance, and we have made changes across a number of areas, from memory handling to managing animations of complex structures. The result of these improvements is a very significant increase to the rendering speed, and in the best cases the frame rate is double that of 2021.2. The scale of the improvement depends on the structure of the data in the scene and the best improvements are seen on complex tree hierarchies with many individual parts.


New Features

Microsoft Hololens 2 Support

It is now possible to remotely render visualisations to the Microsoft HoloLens 2 from Visionary Render. The initial implementation allows the device to be used similar to other HMDs, with future support for HoloLens 2 specific features being continually evaluated.


Editable Text Boxes

Editable text boxes can by styled similarly to other in-scene GUI components, and work with existing script events to support a number of possible use cases, including:

  • Responses to situations/issues/questions in training scenarios
  • Interactive GUIs in simulations/training
  • Accessing scenario specific data from external sources
  • Virtual notebooks
