Editors' Review

Vue Pioneer for Mac provides extensive options for creating 3D terrains that are useful for advanced users who need a rendering program or for those who have the time to decipher a complicated interface. Its feature-rich capabilities and useful operations overcome some speed issues.

The program's download and installation take time due to its 700MB size. The user is prompted to enter an account from the developer's Web site, but this can be bypassed for a trial, which places a watermark on output. Vue Pioneer for Mac also gives the user an option to view a tutorial video, which is a great help since the menu is very complicated. The main window contains many buttons along the top and left side, none of which is labeled well. These allow for things like zooming and shape entry. This does not even include the drop-down features, which are extensive. Selecting a button allows the user to click and place it in the rendering screen, which takes a lot of trial and error to figure out. Ultimately the functions work well and cover most of the areas found in other 3D rendering programs. It took a while to figure out, but the images in the main window turned out well and were of good quality.

For those looking for a program to create 3D drawings, Vue Pioneer for Mac performs well, but requires patience to operate its complicated interface and features.
