MAXON Announces Release of CINEMA 4D R9.6Free update includes more than 40 improvements (May 08, 2006)
MAXON proudly announces its second free update for CINEMA 4D this year. Release 9.6 has more than 40 improvements over R9.5. Most of the improvements have been made to OpenGL display speed, compositing functionalities and the Content Browser.
Macintosh users will immediately notice a much faster OpenGL editor preview, with increases in speeds of up to 50% on newer systems. In some instances, an increase of up to 150% can be achieved. Apple users will also benefit from improved OS X font handling with more precise display, a new selection dialog and additional font types.
There's good news for all compositing artists as well: Multipass now supports eyeon Fusion software and a new External Compositing Tag makes it easy to track objects from CINEMA 4D in 3D space within After Effects. Additional Multipass layer and compositing tags, as well as QuickTime support for H.264, MPEG2 and MPEG4 codecs offer ideal workflow improvements when working with animations in CINEMA 4D.
Numerous improvements to the Content Browser and material management system top off the R9.6 update. These include compressed libraries and Windows network support for the Content Browser, and material management with new hue/saturation settings, loopable noise shaders, faster and better texture handling, and much more.
CINEMA 4D R9.6 is free for owners of R9.5 and is immediately available for Windows (32-bit or 64-bit) or Macintosh (also as Universal Binary) systems as download from www.maxon.net.
