Also, Procedural Inc. has introduced CityEngine STUDIO for $1,695. The new version is suited for small studios in architecture and entertainment which want to realise the full potential of CityEngine or do not qualify for the low-priced CityEngine INDIE.

With its graphical interface, users can now create detailed procedural buildings with a few clicks only." says Pascal Mueller, CEO of Procedural Inc. "And with the introduction of CityEngine STUDIO for $1,695, we now offer a cost-saving city modeling solution to small film, game and architecture studios who don’t have the resources to spend endless hours manually creating a 3D city."
