Cheetah3D v.5.6


Cheetah3D 5.6 brings you a flexible and professional 3D modelling, rendering and animation software for Apple Mac OS X.Cheetah3D provides the most useful features you need to get the job done, and organizes them within a beautifully elegant user interface that's powerful, intuitive and quick to work with. Performing truly advanced operations in Cheetah3D will seem like second nature very rapidly. Cheetah3D provides a level of productivity that you will be hard pressed to equal in software ten times the cost!Major Features:GENERAL FEATURESWritten from the ground-up in Cocoa!Universal Binary application64-bit version for Intel MacsHighly intuitive, thoroughly Macintosh-like user interfaceOpenGL previewQuad 3D viewCustomisable UI layoutAlmost all parameters can be animatedPolygons can have any number of edges (ngons)Full set of object, polygon and point selection toolsFull transformation hierarchyAdditional features can be assigned to objects using tagsIntuitive editors for objects, materials and propertiesUp to 16 different materials per meshA Fully integrated, multi-threaded rendererDrag and drop materials onto your polygon selectionsLink external 3D files into the sceneMulti
