July 2nd, 2012 - Victoria, BC
cebas Visual Technology Inc. is glad to announce the release of its legendary volumeBreaker, ScalpelMAX, stairMAX and maxVR.qt plug-ins for 3ds Max and 3ds Max Design 2013.
The recompile offers higher stability as well as full support through cebas’ web-install feature "cebas Autoupdate 2.x", allowing users easy and instant access to the latest updates of their favorite tools.
A volumetric geometry-fracturing tool that will instantly create sub-geometry within any mesh - geometry that perfectly fits together and fills any given volume.
With volumeBreaker, cebas brings a Hollywood quality destruction tool to 3ds Max.
It was developed to meet the very exacting demands of VFX artists working on multi-million dollar movies such as “2012”, which is why volumeBreaker is truly a production proven tool!
It is an object modifier; offering advanced slicing functionality with many specialized features. ScalpelMAX is perfect for users who are looking to create complex CAD visualizations with polygon counts above 100.000. Also used in games and video effects - people fell in love with this plug-in due its incredible texture-slicing feature!
Mapping coordinates won't be affected by ScalpelMAX operations and this makes it possible to cut down any geometry without losing the materials and mappings.
The advanced stair builder plug-in lets you create parametric stairs and escalators from within 3ds Max and 3ds Max Design. Every single stair parameter can be animated as stairMAX uses a 100% parametric approach to create 3D stairs.
With just a few mouse clicks, you can build hundreds of different stairs. The ease of use is beyond remarkable. Even user defined and customized stair elements stay fully parametric and adjustable!
This plug-in lets you easily create QuickTime MOV files for the web or CD-ROM presentations.
maxVR.qt uses the latest QuickTime technology, licensed and distributed by Apple. You can create QuickTime Panorama files and also QuickTime Object files.
cebas is expected to announce the release of its remaining flagship products - fully supported and compatible with 3ds Max and 3ds Max Design 2013 - VERY soon! Stay tuned.
