E-on Software has announced that it will be previewing the next version of its 3D landscape creation software at the Siggraph trade show. Siggraph is being held this year in Boston from August 1-3.

Vue 6 Infinite is based on a redesigned architecture that provides users with more power, improved workflow and increased productivity, according to E-on. Its 150 new features include EcoSystem Generation II technology, an enhanced version of Vue 5's technology for growing landscapes 'organically' to save time over building them manaually.

E-on says that the upgrade will feature more realistic cloudscapes using a Spectral Atmosphere model and MetaCloud technologies. A full list of features will be released later in the summer, according to the company.

Pricing has not yet been announced, but E-on says that anyone who purchases Vue 5 from July 1 2006 will get a free upgrade to version 6.
