updated 05:05 pm EST, Thu December 9, 2004

formZ 5.0 released

auto·des·sys has released with native Mac OS X support as well as all of the features and enhancements in version 4.5, which was not released to the broader user community (only to a special group of beta testers and plugin developers). Version 5.0 fetures a new API technology for plugins written in C/C++ and new script language (FSL), which is a simplified version of the C language. Other new features include improved copy & paste between windows, better font supports, improved shadows and interactive OpenGL rendering, a new new Doodle line renderer, four new primitives of ruled parametric surfaces (paraboloid, single hyperboloid, double hyperboloid, and hyperbolic paraboloid), a new star tool, new plugins (frames, screws/bolts, and gears), and improved rendering with the LightWorks 7.4 engine, which includes additional types of maps, new environment light, two new image formats (HDRI and OpenEXR), and more. It requires OS X 10.2 or later.
