Editors' reviewLive Interior 3D Pro is a full-featured interior-design application designed to help you plan and visualize redecorating and remodeling projects, in both 2D and 3D. The most impressive improvement in version 2 (which also splits the application into Standard and Pro versions) is the ability to edit 3D objects directly in Live Interior 3D using Google SketchUp, and you can even export entire projects to Google SketchUp format. The 3D models that you can create--both as QuickTime movies and QTVR virtual-reality walk-throughs--have gotten better, with improved lighting and reflection effects, even up to HDTV quality. Live Interior 3D Pro gives you over 1200 3D objects to work with and over 1300 surface materials, and you can also access the Google 3D Warehouse. Learning how to manipulate objects in 3D can still take some time, but improvements to the already Mac-like interface help reduce the learning curve. For anyone embarking on a major home improvement project, Live Interior 3D Pro can be a small but worthwhile investment.
Live Interior 3D Pro is a powerful yet very intuitive interior designing application. Whether you are remodeling, improving or building a new home, Live Interior will assist in visualizing your redesigned apartment way before you actually start the work. Draw CAD like 2D plans, then surf 3D environment to get the look and feel of the interior. Add and arrang objects in both 2D and 3D modes.
Shoot movies, make screenshots and generate 360panoramic views of the interior. In addition to that, you can export the whole interior project (an apartment or multy-story building) or selected objects into Google SketchUp format. Easily share your projects with others via Google 3D Warehouse.
