Release of Cheetah3D 4.2

19. Jun. 2007


Cheetah3D 4.2 has been released today. Version 4.2 is fully loaded with enhancements in the rendering tools. A physical sky light object, much improved antialiasing, physically correct area lights, faster and more accurate blurred reflections, gamma correction and a much improved irradiance cache to name just some. All together it will be much easier and faster to create stunning images. Especially the rendering of indoor scenes is now much easier.
But Cheetah3D 4.2 also offers enhancements in other areas. For example support for 3DConnexions Space Navigator. The SpaceNavigator is a 3D input device with six degrees of freedom which makes the navigation in 3D space easier.

New features in Cheetah3D 4.2:
  • added 3DConnexion Space Navigator support
  • added sky light
  • added support for under- and oversampling (replaces super-sampling)
  • added bucket based rendering
  • added pixel filtering (gauss)
  • added gamma correction (new scenes will use default 1.8)
  • added orthographic projection rendering
  • added soft shadows to point light
  • added display of light geometry to point and area lights
  • added "clamp color" property to render settings to avoid aliases at super bright pixels
  • added color support to STL export (VisCam and Magic encoding)
  • add materials to more than one object at once
  • improved irradiance cache
  • increased blurred reflections performance and quality
  • increased soft shadow performance and quality (16 samples should be enough for most scenes)
  • increased ray-depth max. to 24
  • improved "edge" antialiasing mode (is default in new scenes)
  • physically correct area lights
  • fixed grey boarder bug when rendering scene with transparent background
  • much faster rendering job cancelation
  • various other bug fixes and optimizations
