Release of Cheetah3D 4.3

26. Oct. 2007


Cheetah3D 4.3 has been released today. Version 4.3 makes Cheetah3D MacOS X 10.5 (Leopard) compatible. Unluckily Leopard broke some drag and drop functionality in previous Cheetah3D versions so Cheetah3D 4.3 is a musthave update for all who want to use Cheetah3D on Leopard.

But Cheetah3D 4.3 doesn't just add Leopard compatibility, it also adds support for texture- and lightmap-baking and support of an second UV coord set. So game developers can now use Cheetah3D for creating realistic lightmapped environments. The FBX exporter has been also updated to support the second UV set.

The thrid major new feature in v4.3 is the Japanes localization of Cheetah3D done by Hiroto Tsubaki, Masao Miyata, Umeno Hideyuki and Satoru Imatake. Even the documentation is already translated by 75%. Many thanks for your help. You did a great job.

  • Cheetah3D 4.3 is Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) compatible
  • Added Japanese localization
  • Added texture and lightmap baking support
