Release of Cheetah3D 7.1 - Adds polygon reduction, loft,…

7. Dec. 2017


We are pleased to announce the the first feature update to Cheetah3D 7. After a smooth rollout of Cheetah3D 7.0 two months ago many powerful new features like polygon reduction, a loft modelling object and a vastly improved text spline object been added. Users with limited amounts of RAM will be happy to hear that the renderer is using considerably less memory with Cheetah3D 7.1 which allows even more complex and realistic scenes.

Major new features in Cheetah3D 7.1:
  • Added mesh simplification tool (using fast quadric mesh simplification)
  • Added normal compression to Cheetah/Falcon (geometry uses approx. 20% less RAM)
  • Added Loft creator object
  • Added uv coords to covers of lathe, polyplane and sweep objects
  • Added scroll wheel support to movie player in renderer manager
  • Improved Text spline object
    • Added multi-line support
    • Added font size property
    • Added text alignment property
    • Added character and line spacing property
    • Added animation property
  • Improved SVG import
    • Improved import of densely packed path tags
    • arcs are no longer tesselated but converted to splines
  • Improved spline tesselation algorithm
    • More evenly spaced
    • 3x faster
  • Improved transform gadget (handles are easier to pick)
  • Imporved numerical precision of polyhedra object
  • Imporved numerical precision of ruler tool
  • Improved performance of material preview rendering
  • Improved FBX exported/imported (joint type gets handled properly)
  • Timeline is always displayed after launch
  • Render tags inherit their settings to child objects
  • Render tags can be attached to folder objects
  • Fixed bug in STL, OBJ, 3DS, etc. exporters (subtract with boolean modifier caused problems)
  • Fixed bug when entering negative values in properties editor (under Swedish language)
  • Fixed bug in transform tool (IK failed under certain contitions)
  • Fixed transparency bug in Cheetah
