Cheetah3D 4.6 Released With Video Tutorials

Posted May 14, 2008 at 11:22am by iClarified
Cheetah3D 4.6 was released today. Version 4.6 adds support for Auto-saving documents. If turned on in the prefernces window your work will be saved automatically every few minutes. So if a crash should happen only the work of the last few minutes gets lost. Other enhancement in this version is the support of rendering movies with an arbitrary frame rate or the improved FBX file loader.

To offer an even better learning experience we've teamed up with Andrew Heyworth (known as "fused" in the Cheetah3D user forum), a professional designer and teacher, to produce Cheetah3D video training material. The resulting "Cheetah3D for Beginner" video tutorials cover all the main aspects of using Cheetah3D from the User interface, materials, modelling, rendering and animation. The 4h video tutorials are available via download (851 MByte, 960x720 resolution) for 29$.
