Autodesk Inc. announced a new subscription delivery for its 3ds Max 8 software called Pro Booleans, a new feature extension offered exclusively for its subscription customers. Pro Booleans delivers expanded flexibility for the installed modeling tools in 3ds Max, Autodesk's professional 3D-animation software. Pro Booleans, based on Power Booleans from NPower Software, is for building highly detailed inorganic shapes such as vehicles, hand-held items or mechanical objects appealing to 3D artists in visual effects, game development and design visualization. Other aspects of Boolean modeling include creating detailed, accurate surfaces with minimal numbers of polygons at high-speed performance. Pro Booleans avoids common Boolean modeling pitfalls that can generate surface flaws and other errors such as creating long, thin pieces of geometry. Pro Booleans will also offer 3ds Max subscription customers Pro Cutter, a tool designed to dismantle a model in a number of different ways. This feature can be used as a simple method for animating effects such as shattered glass and other similar procedural systems.
