  • New types of lenses and crystals;
  • New types of highlights;
  • Improved particle system for more complex patterns of lenses;
  • Ability to apply special effects to crystals;
  • Ability to create glass surfaces of the shape of any selected area;
  • ABility to reflect objects from glass surfaces of lenses and crystals.
