Maxon Computer has released version 7.1 of its Cinema 4D XL 3D modeling, animation and rendering suite. The latest releases receives a few new features, including Shockwave 3D export, and is a free update for users of Cinema 4D XL 7.

One of the new features is the inclusion of the plugin called Smells Like Almonds 2.5. SLA is a set of procedural shaders for Cinema 4D that includes six 3D shading engines that enable users to create complex and realistic surface effects, such as multi-layer specularity, anisotropic metals, volume rendered woods and stones, rusted and blistered surfaces and translucent backlighting. It also includes several 2D shading engines and more than 25 noise types in the noise shader alone, with control over contrast, brightness, clipping and procedural patterns.


Version 7.1 also supports export to the Shockwave 3D format, which is used by Macromedia Director to create interactive 3D content for the Web and stand-alone applications.

Release 7.1 also includes compatibility for Mac OS X. OS X compatibility was previously available in version 6.x.
