VUE xStream (called VUE for short) is a three-dimensional landscape designing & producing software (from France) specially designed for artists and illustrators. It can perfectly work with 3ds Max, Maya, LightWave, Cinema 4D, Softimage and other 3D rending tools, so as to simulate all kinds of very lifelike natural environments. For example: Terrains, Vegetation, Ecosystem, Atmospheres, Natural Elements, Lighting, etc.

The natural environment produced using VUE xStream perfectly fuses with the scenes and animation inside. In addition, it also supports rendering in 3ds Max, Maya, Softimage XSI, Lightwave or Cinema 4D in the form of a plug-in. Therefore, it is considered to be one of the best choices for building, illustration, matte painting and animation production.
