cebas Visual Technology releases SP2 for its leading 3ds Max core rendering engine Today, cebas Visual Technology Inc. released its Service Pack 2 (SP2) update of finalRender. The latest release includes many easy presets that run extremely fast and readily create outstanding results. This allows first-time users to quickly get up to speed with finalRender without having to first learn its many features and ways of adjusting them.
Easy Presets Leverage Render Technology Especially for New Customers
“We wanted to give first-time users an easy and quick ramp-up for using our top-selling software. This release allows them to create eye-popping renderings with blazing speed. Our simple, new presets leverage the true potential of our core rendering engine,” said cebas CEO Edwin Braun.
“The difference in ease-of-use compared to the cumbersome built-in functionality of the built-in 3ds Max raytracing system is just huge now and more self-evident than ever,” added Michael Breitzke, Head Technology Engineer of rendering solutions.
