New Character Models And Animations
The new models include several business people, people involved in sporting activities, people sunbathing and even some people swimming. With these new models it’s easier than ever to bring your visualizations to life.
Improved Shadows And Reflections
The shadow routines are completely rewritten to extend their range further in the distance while providing excellent sharpness at close ranges. The new enhancements particularly improve the quality of aerial shots and sun studies.
Glossy surfaces are drawn with improved quality by removing errors and improving the filtering of the reflections. The amount of blur now accurately represents the glossiness and looks smoother. Light reflecting off surfaces now looks better as distracting visual errors are removed and this increases overall quality.
In Photo and Movie mode you can now copy-paste individual effects and you can save and load entire effect stacks. This is great to store your favorite effects to disk for use in another project.
The content browser allows you to add models to your favorites list so you can quickly find them later. When you have assigned one or more favorites, a new tab will appear listing all your favorite models.
Moving, rotating and sizing models now offers more detailed control. The new user interface allows you to type in values or use sliders to orientate, size or position models.
Configurable Sun And Moon Disc Size
