If you're one of those people who toyed around with Poser in the days of Fractal Design, then you're probably as surprised as I am that a) Poser still gets updates and b) those updates cost a few hundred dollars ($239.99 and $399.99 respectively). One the other hand, it is pretty cool to see that a *small* application like this outlasted so many others and looks to be doing well in their own regard. Check out the product video -- it'll blow your skirt up a bit too. Lots of things have been added since 1995!
It's only been 15 days since 2.67 was released and already there have been over 100 bug fixes in UI, viewport, animation, sequencer, composite/nodes, general rendering, cycles render, freestyle render, modifiers, tools, sculpting, game engine, particles and more. Seriously, are these guys for real? If you ran into any bugs with the last release, you can download 2.67a here. Full list of bug fixes after the break.
Unity Technologies has announced today that independent Unity developers will be able to deploy their games to Android and iOS platforms completely free of charge. Watch the (slightly awkward *whats up with the scripted words*) video of CEO David Helgason explaining this decision.
Tinkercad allows you to quickly turn an idea into a CAD model for a 3D printer. This acquisition actually makes sense for Autodesk given their software portfolio. One can hope that with Autodesk's backing, we can all get onboard the 3D printing train...that is, hopefully that we can all afford 3D printers for home use, along with the assortment of materials that'll allow us to print to our heart's content. Until someone develops the replicator from Star Trek TNG. Side note: no mention of how much Autodesk bought Tinkercad for.
Artists, architects and designers always want their software to do more. More detail, more speed, more quality. With the announcement of V-Ray 1.6 for SketchUp Open Beta, users now have the biggest expansion to SketchUp’s rendering capabilities right at their fingertips. This massive upgrade to V-Ray for SketchUp includes a series of new feature introductions that enhance visualization workflow and render quality (V-Ray RT®, V-Ray Dome Light) and streamline scene complexity (V-Ray Proxy).
