Tools developer Maxon has announced a free upgrade for its rendering, modeling, and animation package Cinema 4D Release 9.5.
In addition to a number of bug fixes, this update boasts over a dozen optimized features and additional improvements. Since Maxon was one of the first tools developers to release a 64-bit version of its software, the company has announced that Cinema 4D R9.52 is also available in 64-bit.
The R9.52 update includes such improvements as changes to the Content Browser that make it even easier to use, expanded drag & drop functionality and an improved menu structure, making this easy to learn application even more efficient. In addition, a new shader has been added to Cinema 4D - the ChamLum shader.
This shader illuminates the surface of objects with a soft, slightly fuzzy look - great for rendering realistic skin. Furthermore, a Content Browser library containing shaders, light setups and a bunch of useful goodies is also available for free download.
