Release of Cheetah3D 5.6

16. Nov. 2010


Today saw the release of Cheetah 5.6. The biggest change in this latest version is undoubtedly the completely rewritten transform tool. The new transform tool now supports multi-object selections, has a gadget mode to arbitrarily align the transform gadget and comes with much improved snapping tools for precise modeling. Version 5.6 also introduce post- and pre-rotations which are great for orienting joints. The added support for many video codecs like H.264 or MPEG4 plus many small workflow enhancements rounds off the new features.

Cheetah3D 5.6 is a free update for all registered Cheetah3D 5.x users.

The $99 Cheetah3D special offer (normally $149) ends Nov. 19th 2010.
