Select and move turbines on the map, in 3D and within a spherical panorama. Adjust turbine manufacturer, hub height and rotor diameter and evaluate visual impact in real time.
SkyDetect is a clever algorithm that cuts out the sky from a panorama, automatically creating photomontages that fit most use cases.
With the Manual Masking tool you can create perfect photomontage if SkyDetect fails (i.e. if a turbine is placed in front of a building or a mountain).
Show life-like sizes within Google Daydream or Cardboard VR-glasses. To public or boardroom. Adjust their vantage point in sync with your narrative.
EditorMove and adjust turbines within a panorama.
SkyDetect masking nNeural Network trained to automatically mask panoramas.
Manual MaskingQuickly create a manual mask in case the automatic SkyDetect is insufficient.
VR-glassesExperience turbines in life-like scale
Create photo montages on the fly. Choose one of three options to position the turbine in the surroundings exactly where you want it to be:
- SkyDetect: this is a clever algorithm that cuts out the sky from a panorama, automatically creating photomontages that fit most cases.
- Manual Masking: with this tool, you can manually adjust the skyline if SkyDetect fails. And, for instance, if you want to position a turbine in front of the mountain but behind the trees.
- No mask: in this option, the turbine will be placed in front of all objects.
