e-on offers Cocoa-based 64-bit betas of Vue 8, Vue 8.5

Enhanced rendering speed

e-on Software has announced a new Cocoa-based 64-bit early-beta version of its Vue 8 and Vue 8.5 3D rendering software. The beta is a re-designed version of the Vue software made to take advantage of the 64-bit processing power in the latest Snow Leopard OS and Apple hardware. With the new modifications the software offers rendering speeds up to three times faster than the 32-bit versions, and allows developers to create larger and more detailed scenery and faster overall performance.

Currently, the early beta versions of Vue Infinite and xStream are made for evaluation purposes only, and lack many features found in the regular program such as Poser support and the ability to save animations as QuickTime MOV files. Additionally, the xStream beta is only capable of running in Standalone mode, and the OpenGL Shader 4 engine is not yet available. Finally, users can not save still images as TIFF files, yet other JPG and BMP formats are still supported.

The new betas are available as a free download for all registered Vue 8 Infinite and xStream users, and can be obtained from eonsoftware.com.
