Visuals in an instant

Still images
Your visuals are ready the moment you find the view you need. There is no rendering time, so send your images to your clients immediately.

Create high quality, high resolution animated clips, and merge them into a single walkthrough without having to use 3rd party video editing software products.

What’s more, there is no need to wait for hours until your animation is ready, as they are made at an instant, and they are ready to be viewed on your computer, or any smart device.

Panorama 360

Take your client to where the action is, use 360 degree panoramic images when presenting your projects. Send your work to your clients, who can explore on their own devices, what you have created. No additional software needs to be installed for such an experience. 

What is ARCHLine Live?

ARCHLine Live is easy to use, affordable arch-viz animation software to turn your 3D model into an immersive design, creating high quality visualization images, videos and live walk-throughs.

ARCHLine Live enables architecture and interior spaces to be visualized in a real time, simulating materials, sun, lighting, vegetation, water and other environmental features such as people and vehicles etc.

Model your design in your favorite modeller and make it come alive in ARCHLine Live.

There is no rendering time so that you can react to your clients’ requests immediately, on the fly and reflect modifications in minutes, regardless of the size and complexity of your project. Less time spent on rendering means more time left for design.

ARCHLine Live is now available directly for use with SketchUp or ARCHLine.XP BIM/CAD software. 

Your design speaks for itself

Lifelike materials
Thanks to genuinely realistic and detailed materials, even the tiniest of details of your surfaces can be emphasized. Test countless variations and ideas, and find the one that really fits your style.

Fantastic lights
Whether it’s about the warm caress of the rising Sun, or the moody lights of an interior, there is no limit on your imagination. Set up intensity, color, temperature, and show your design in the best possible light. 

Water surfaces
Use dynamically moving water surfaces on pools, bathtubs, which ripple in the wind, to give an even more natural effect.

Explore it

The mood of your design touches your clients if they can freely walk around, feel and experience their future property, long before it becomes a reality

Movement, wherever you look

ARCHLine.XP LIVE is shipped with ready-to-use high quality motion capture animated human assets to help increasing the realism of your visuals. You can draw animation paths for the human characters and they will start walking or running based on the selected animation or if you prefer, they can also start a conversation.

Moving vehicles and objects
Place a vehicle in the model, draw a path and set up the movement speed. That’s all you need to populate the streets of your visuals in a few steps. Of course, you can bring in 3D models from external sources, to add smart vacuums or other moving objects to your plans.

Animated surfaces
Animating a surface material is just as easy as ABC. Set up the horizontal and/or vertical texture speed and you are done. Use this unique feature to create animated rollup advertisements, LED panels and more.


Foliage painter
Plant detailed foliage around your models, even if you need to cover huge surfaces. Set up your painter to randomly generate a variety of shrubbery, trees and flowers over the area you need.

Ready to use high quality cylindrical backgrounds are available in the LIVE Library to enhance the realism of your model’s surrounding in one click. The backgrounds are in various sizes designed to surround smaller and larger projects in urban or natural scenarios.

Simulate and fine tune clouds, sunlight, fog, rain or snowfall. Just find the weather settings you need, and LIVE will make sure that the result of the chosen style is visible on your visuals in the shape of puddles, or even a sheet of snow cover.

LiveSync and Imports

Working with SketchUp and LIVE is easy with the free ARCHLine.XP LIVE SektchUp plugin available for SketchUp Pro users. Simply model anything in SketchUp and use the Sync button to visualize the model in LIVE. Turn the model into real-time photorealistic visuals in minutes. Whenever the SketchUp model changes, just push the Sync button again to update the LIVE visual with the latest changes. It is that simple really!

Working in ARCHLine.XP? Great news: track changes to architect and interior design plans with the LiveSync feature, which allows the changes made in the ARCHLine.XP design software to be synchronized with ARCHLine.XP LIVE archviz animation software with a single click.

LIVE is able to read SKP, OBJ and FBX models, so you can enrich your visuals and extend your object library with even more content.

How does ARCHLine Live compare with Lumion?

ARCHLine.XP 'Live' is newer to the market and is targeted to those on a tighter budget. 'Live' works directly with ARCHLine.XP Pro architectural modeller and also SketchUp. ‘Live’ is also suitable for any other modeller such as Revit and ArchiCAD but unlike Lumion there is no linkage between the two programs, so if you make a change in your modeller you need to re-export to ‘Live’. ‘Live’ is available to purchase outright and is also available as an annual rental/subscription license.

Lumion is the world’s premium visualiser with many additional years of development that’s reflected in its price and performance. Lumion has a larger library to work with and is able to generate even higher quality still renderings, apply more atmospheric and surface effects and textures. Lumion is currently only available as a permanent license, no annual subscription version is available. Lumion links directly with models from a variety of CAD software so as you update the model in CAD the model in Lumion updates also.
