TruFlite - Fact Sheet

TruFlite for Windows is one of the most powerful 3D landscape rendering systems available on the market. One of its most distinctive advantages compared with its competitors are TruFlite's amazing capabilities to deal with very complex surface grids.

You are able to render millions of gouraud-shaded texture-mapped polygons on a standard PC.

  • Windows program originally designed for this platform
  • a program producing research grade results available for PCs
  • 3D renderer capable of rendering hundreds of millions of polygons, with no upper limit
  • 24 bit resolution in elevation - 16 million elevation steps possible
  • context sensitive help system
  • intuitive, easy-to-use control desk
  • renders multiple sceneries simultanelously
  • utilizes Gouraud shading
  • antialiasing/color interpolation can be parameterized
  • light effects
  • fog effects
  • fast wireframe preview
  • size or aspect ratio of texture file needs not be the same as of elevation file (resizing at run-time)
  • allows masking, you can overlay your own logo
  • produces single images or series of images for creating animations
  • input files: TGA format; any bitmap editor capable of loading TGA files can load TruFlite elevation or texture files as well
  • output files: TGA and/or YUV
  • import filters for:
  • ASCII x/y/z
  • U.S. Geological Survey 3 arc second DEMs
  • U.S. Geological Survey 7.5 minute (30 meter) DEMs
  • U.S. Geological Survey 30 arc second BILs
  • Erdas Imagine® binary files
  • Idrisi binary file import filter
  • ARC/View DEM files
  • generic binary file import filter
  • import of multiple USGS DEMs - tiling is done automatically
  • output can be compiled to animations using third party software
  • edit/clipboard copy/print preview/print functions even during the rendering process
  • animations: move along straight lines or along a closed curve
  • define the flight path by clicking and dragging the waypoints directly on the map
  • export or import images via the clipboard
  • rectify or rotate texture data from scanned maps to fit the elevation data
  • use scanned maps as source for elevation data, create DEM files out of height contour lines
  • the crew that has been developing TruFlite over the past fifteen years are all C++ and visualization experts as well
  • the program emerged from an object oriented design process from the very beginning which has made it easy to adapt it to your needs
