Vue 7.5 updates released

e-on has announced the availability of Vue 7.5 xStream and Vue 7.5 Infinite. The software is used to create, animate and render natural-looking 3D environments. Infinite is a standalone application, while xStream functions within 3DS Max, Cinema4D, LightWave 3D, Maya and SoftimageXSI. Both upgrades include a variety of improvements.

Among these are features such as camera mapping, effects-driven material mapping in the Terrain Editor, and color and alpha masks for single or layered clouds in multi-pass renders. The applications have also been given spherical cloudscapes, and new spherical and planetary procedural terrains with infinite levels of detail. The xStream edition is set apart because of its support of EcoSystem painting in XSI, and the V-Ray renderer in 3DS Max.

Users subscribing to either a Standard or Premium maintenance plan for Vue 7 are eligible for an upgrade to the corresponding v7.5 product for free. Those without maintenance plans can upgrade to v7.5 xStream and Infinite for $495 and $295, respectively. xStream is $1,500 new, while Infinite is $900.
