Cheetah 3D update supports Snow Leopard

Cheetah 3D 4.7, the latest version of the 3D rendering, modelling and animation software for the Mac was released today. The update delivers a series of bug fixes for rendering issues and texture importing, along with support for Mac's newest operating system Snow Leopard. The software delivers a variety of polygon and spline modeling tools, and enables users to create and animate 3D scenes. A UV editing function is also included that makes it possible to move, scale or rotate UV coordinates, and displays the changes in a 3D preview.

In addition to the bug fixes the software adds improvements for faster calculation of materials in preview renders, as well as an optimized frame buffer for less memory consumption.

Cheetah 3D 4.7 is a free upgrade for all Cheetah 3D 4 users and is compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 or later. A single user license is priced at $130 with upgrades costing $60 for people who are currently running version 1, 2 or 3.
