December 09, 2010. Beaverton, Oregon: e-on software, the leader in Digital Nature solutions and Procedural Inc., makers of the leading tool for 3D city creation, are jointly announcing the immediate availability of CityEngine Vue, a complete city modeling solution. CityEngine Vue enables Vue users to create large cities with a few clicks, and seamlessly integrate the detailed building or street models into Vue landscapes.

"Anyone that has ever had to create a city knows that the amount of detail that goes into making a 3D city takes a lot of time to build and construct.", said Pascal Mueller, CEO of Procedural Inc. "CityEngine Vue does most of the work for you using procedural technology, cutting out time consuming tasks such as manual design, texturing and modeling of buildings and streets. Now you can build your city in no time and integrate it directly in Vue."

"CityEngine Vue provides a powerful suite of tools to create 3D cities and import them seamlessly into Vue for rendering in rich natural 3D environments. We are excited to bring this opportunity to our users through Cornucopia3D, e-on software's community and content division," said Nicholas Phelps, President of e-on software.
