I started Vue d'Esprit with version 2. Used the demo for about 20 minutes and placed my order. No other program has ever grabbed me so fast as that. Version 3 added many more features and has been a real gem of a tool. I use Vue for all kinds of scenes: indoor, outdoor, abstract, portraiture, illustration, etc. I can hardly wait to get my hands on this new version 4 (which will also be available for Mac OS X). How could E-on Software improve an already exceptional program? Incredible, but they did! :)
