Electric Image Updates Universe

New version adds features, fixes bugs for Animator and Camera By Dave Nagel
Electric Image has released an update to Universe 5, the company's 3D modeling and animation suite. Version 5.0.4 fixes bugs and adds features to Animator and Camera. It's available now for Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows.

The new version changes the way material pasting is handled. When the most forward window is the Material Info window, the pasted position of the texture within the material is offset by the coordinates of the object. Otherwise, it behaves as in the previous version. Also new is a feature for Spot Lights that allows them to inherit the Inner Cone angle, Outer Cone angle and and Factor from their Master Light when the Inherit Attributes option is checked. Version 5.0.4 also fixes some bugs with Animator and Camera. Full documentation is available on EI's Web site.


The Universe 5.0.4 updater requires Universe 5.0.3. It's available as a free update for Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows systems. For more information, visit http://www.electricimage.com.
