+ Cheetah3D 5.3 was released today. The biggest change in Cheetah3D 5.3 is undoubtedly the 64-bit version for Intel 64-bit CPUs. Now Cheetah3D can use all the memory installed in your Mac, and will allow you to create much more complex scenes. To deal with these complex scenes, the Cheetah3D raytracing core has been accelerated considerably, and Altivec/SSE optimized. On the user interface side, the already convenient and easy-to-use Render Manager has been rewritten completely and is now even better. For example, for easier finding of old render jobs, a thumbnail preview is now available. The pose manager functionality has moved to a tag to allow saving poses locally and making it more conveninent and faster to work with character poses. To offer an even better learning experience, we've once again teamed up with Andrew Heyworth to produce Cheetah3D 5.0 video training material. The resulting "Cheetah3D 5.0 for Beginners" video tutorials cover all the main aspects of using Cheetah3D from the user interface, the new material system, modelling, rendering and animation. The length of the video tutorials has grown to five-and-a-half hours, and they are available via download (1.4 GByte, 1024x768 resolution) for just 29$. For more information, please - Click here
