Cheetah3D 4.5 adds better Leopard support

updated 12:55 pm EDT, Wed March 12, 2008

Cheetah3D 4.5

Cheetah3D 4.5, a new version of the 3D modelling, rendering and animation solution for Apple Mac OS X, was released today. It improves the MacOS X 10.5 (Leopard) compatibility and should solve the last minor problems. The new release also mproves the memory efficiency of the render manager. Now only active render jobs are kept in RAM and finished render jobs are swapped to the hard disk. This also allows the render manager to recover the results of finished rendering jobs if Cheetah3D should crash. In addition, the PDF import has been improved to allow an even better workflow between Illustrator and other applications.

Other new features include faster application start up; scroll wheel works in all mouse navigation modes now; scroll wheel drag works as camera rotation; fixed F-Curve/3Dview redraw bug; fixed bug in Javascript (CYLINDER primitive was missing); fixed bug in UV unwrapping tool

Cheetah3D 4.5 is free for all registered Cheetah3D 4.x users. A single user license costs $130 and $60 for an update of an older version (1.x, 2.x or 3.x).
