Modeling, Rendering and Animation Software Created for Mac Graphic Designers, Game Developers, Architects and Hobbyists of All Levels
Tapfheim, Germany - MW3D-Solutions announced the release of Cheetah3D 6.0, a major update to its professional level 3D modeling solution for Mac OS X. Developed from the ground up utilizing the latest Cocoa technologies, Cheetah3D is a lean, fast, and powerful 3D modeling, rendering, and animation package with a relaxed learning curve.
Cheetah3D provides many of the most useful features and organizes them within a beautifully elegant user-interface that is intuitive and easy to use. It offers many powerful tools, such as subdivision surface modeling, joint based character animation system, UV unwrapping, texture painting, rigid and soft body dynamics, PDF import, global illumination renderer, and much more.
The biggest change in v6.0 is the smooth integration of the industry-proven Bullet physics engine for the simulation of rigid-body and soft-body dynamics. It is now easy to create a bowl of marbles spilling or simulating a flag waving in the wind. Cheetah3D 6.0 can handle this easily with just a few mouse clicks.
Major new features in Cheetah3D 6.0:
Simulation of rigid-body and soft-body dynamics using the industry-proven Bullet physics engine
Seamless integration of the physics engine with interactive realtime preview Simulation baking for complex scenes
Isosurfaces (Metaballs) with support for balls, vertices, particles and splines Keying (animation) of mesh vertices and spline control points
