"CityEngine 2010 lets you create smart 3D cities! They are intuitively to control, flexible to interactive manipulation and can be completely driven by GIS data." says Pascal Mueller, CEO of Procedural Inc. "Users from all industries benefit from smart 3D cities generated with CityEngine, ranging from Masdar City, the first zero energy city ever planned, to feature films by studios such as Pixar or Dreamworks. And due the new node-based rule editor, also users without scripting knowledge can now use the unlimited power of procedural modeling - without being restricted to pre-defined typologies or technical constraints."
