Congratulations on the Cheetah 6.0 release. Things have really progressed since version 3!

Just purchased and downloaded from MAS. Clicked on 5 stars...

I was just thinking about this the other day, having not been on here in awhile, wondering if 6x would include the ability for balloons to bounce off each other in the air (as seen in the movie UP). Sure enough, 6x addresses this feature!

Great to see 6x is available. Congratulations on all the new features Martin. Looks promising!

Possible future 6x FEATURES I want to see:
In the near future, might a 6x version also include:

-Pivot any Joint and choose to rotate what is above or below (this would dramatically speed up and improve my character animations). Currently, I can only rotate everything below the joint selected in the skeleton, but often times, rotating the body above would be so much easier, like stop motion Claymation pivot points.

-Video .mov textures in the future? I could have a TV or flat screen playing, or use it for special FX in background.

-Correction of rotation of joints in work window, stretching apart unintentionally when rotating too far away from point 0 0 0 xyz, say at position 100,000 100,000 100,000?

31 mb sounds like a faster download.

The physics engine seems extremely useful and well implemented. The examples are good. Metaballs could be fun and useful. The new modifiers are a good addition too. A very solid update.

Thanks for the feedback on the physics. Good to hear.

Kind regards

Thanks for posting this info. For registration, does it still require the computer to be online only to confirm registration with that computer? Only reason I ask is I try to keep my main computer offline. Thanks.

I'm so tired... because I've been having fun with the new dynamic features of Cheetah3D 6.0 all day long!

Thank you Martin.

Placed my first C3D 6.0 test on YouTube:

Yep bought the upgrade this morning. Haven't had much time to play with it yet, but I will. The good news is that I got an Intel Mac at home about 3 weeks ago, and finally got a new Intel iMac 3 days ago at work. So I'll be able to use v6 in both places now!

All MAS customers fall into the free Upgrade time frame (the MAS opened Dac 6th 2011) so please don't take that as a general case forwever.

How I will handle v7 is not decided yet. But the price will be the same for both license types.

The Sandbox is still a problem with a big question mark. Existing products are allowed not to use the sandbox but once the sandbox become mandatory things get pretty ugly since the sandbox definitely wasn't designed for a 3D app.

Andrew is very busy at the moment so I don't know it by myself yet.

Thank you very much. Good star-ratings and reviews are always very motivating.

I just updated to 6.0. Great job, Martin. The bullet physics alone is worth the price of the update. Very nicely done! Also, I noticed we finally get a functioning Orthographic camera view. Yeeha!

Your welcome. You sure you will also like the 6.x updates. There is at least one feature coming you will love especially.

Bye
Martin
