Visualization Sciences Group (VSG) has released version 6.2 of Avizo, its visualisation and analysis software for scientists and engineers. Bringing many improvements both on performance and usability, Avizo 6.2 represents an essential step in VSG's continuous efforts to deliver even more powerful and easier-to-use 3D data analysis tools.
In version 6.2, new advanced tools have been added and significant improvements have been brought even to basic features. The ergonomics of the program have been considerably improved to make repetitive tasks easier to use, such as setting the position of a plane in 3D space. Improving performance has also been a very important goal for VSG developers. In this new version, particularly for the Wind and Fire editions, various calculation modules have been adapted to take advantage of multi-core systems. A particular effort has been made to reduce the loading time of CFD files and the memory footprint of the application, allowing loading even larger files much faster than before. The quantification package also benefits from all enhancements made to the embedded Visilog package.
