ProWalker GPU has officially been released! ProWalker is an updated version of Podium Walker, and is now powered by NVIDIA's Iray render engine, a physically-based pathtracer with support for all Podium material properties. ProWalker is available for for Windows users ONLY.

  • Podium Walker "Standard" is still available Because ProWalker GPU is not available on Mac, we will still offer the old version for Mac users, and those with less powerful hardware. We are looking into licensing AMD's ProRender GPU-accelerated raytracer to provide a comparable alternative for Mac users, but nothing is definite yet.
  • Increased quality and versatility: ProWalker includes a physically-based pathtracing mode, and can be used as a powerful visualization companion to SU Podium for both still images and camera animation. See examples in the still gallery. See examples in the still gallery.
