+ cebas VISUAL TECHNOLOGY Inc., makers of finalRender® and ThinkingParticles, today present a first glimpse at the forthcoming releases of the long awaited finalRender R3 and the all new finalRender R3 SE (Studio Edition) for 3ds Max. With this announcement, cebas shows its commitment to their user base and to it's high standards in bringing only the latest and most advanced software technologies to market. finalRender R3 SE was specifically designed to meet the needs for Roland Emmerich's $200 million picture “2012”, co-produced by LA based film production company Uncharted Territory. All the changes introduced into this latest release of finalRender made it the renderer of choice for 2012 at Uncharted Territory. Many first of a kind features and unique tools have been developed to cope with this extremely demanding production environment, allowing for complete flexibility and fast turnaround times from start to finish. One of the most challenging tasks was the creation of a completely new Render Passes system able to outperform the built-in system of 3ds Max. Handling of 100+ Render Elements per frame was a big task that had to be solved. 3ds Max has a built-in maximum of 32 Render Elements per frame which had to be overcome by finalRender Studio Edition, as well as addressing the problem of the extra amount of memory needed for so many Render Elements. With the introduction of Release 3.0, finalRender for 3ds Max will be offered in 2 flavors; as a standard version (finalRender R3) targeted to the mainstream user base, while the other version, named Studio Edition (finalRender R3 SE for short), will be the perfect choice for bigger production houses and advanced users seeking the maximum in quality and flexibility. Both products use the same rock solid and Hollywood production proven rendering core. finalToon, the quasi standard in Non Photo Realistic (NPR) rendering for 3ds Max has also been massively upgraded with features and functions, finalToon is available as an integrated part that comes with finalRender R3 or finalRender R3 SE or as a standalone version.
