Software Options for the "Focus" Studio

Studios are supplied with two variants of software: HotActions and HotActions Lite.

In addition to the hardware/software system Focus proper, the appropriate scenes (design projects of interiors) created in a compatible format with Focus are required. The standard delivery set includes a small set of training samples and entry-level scenes. HotActions Lite solutions do not include tools for creating 3D scenes and imply ordering the content from third-party developers.
