Release of Cheetah3D 5.0

8. Oct. 2009


Cheetah3D 5.0 was released today. Version 5.0 adds a completely new node based material system which allows professional designers to create stunning new materials just by drag and drop. Additionally, the render engine was optimized to efficiently handle up to 16 CPU cores. The modeling tools have been extended by a new bevel tool and a bend modifier, and basic export to the Collada file format has been added. Cheetah3D 5.0 now also supports pivot points.
Last but not least, Cheetah3D offers many small UI enhancements which accelerate daily work.

Cheetah3D 5.0 is priced at $149.00 (USD) for a single-user license. Customers may upgrade from Cheetah3D 1.x - 4.x for $69.00.
