Ø Improved dynamics
New Digital sculpting tools
· Dynamic sculpting tools include pull, wax, smooth, inflate, knife and pinch which give artist more functionality and smoother work flow while sculpting the model.
· New presets are added for brushes, stamps, stencils, size, pressure, symmetry etc.
· New powerful layer system for each process. Now you can easily bake the sculpted high mesh geometry in to displacement and normal maps which can be applied to the low poly geometry.
Improved modelling tool sets
· Interactive work planes, dynamic guides and powerful snapping system with option too snap to grid.
Camera enhancements with motion tracking
· New motion camera, morph camera and camera composition helper helps artist to easily integrate 3d elements with the photographs and real footages. Better 3d matching functionality to improve the work flow.
Faster and better rendering
· Improved rendering gives unmatched realism to renders with faster rendering time and easy work flow. New materials and shaders for wood grain, stimulating weather effect and normal mapping.
· Global illumination with radiosity and unified sampling.
· New position pass which allows relight scenes, pull position based mattes and reconstruct objects after rendering.
· New interactive grading curves allows user to perform colour correction after rendering the whole scene.
· Caustics are faster than never before with 2x speed.
· Better sub surface scattering for real objects such as milk, wax and skin.
Better integration to compositing softwares
· Seamless integration with Foundry’s Nuke.
· Directly create multi pass rendering and export to composited layers in Nuke.
· Supports open EXR and FBX integration with in render pass.
· 3d layer exchange to Adobe Photoshop with built in plug in.
· Better integration with After effects.
Extra features
· Improved realism and controls for aero dynamics, springs and connectors.
· Improved editor which displays soft shadows and high lights newly added objects.
