finalRender Subscription Drop 6 Service Pack 5

finalToon and finalToon Standalone gets a major new feature update!

We are excited to announce the release of finalRender Drop 6 Service Pack 5! This latest update brings essential bug fixes and improvements to enhance your rendering experience. As an existing subscriber, you can download and install the upgrade for free through the cebas Product Manager application.

finalToon is the first 3ds Max Plug-In to offer 2D-SVG Vector export/rendering. Check out this animated 2D-Vector file, rendered with finalRender and finalToon and saved as an SVG file.

finalToon: SVG Export (1.1)

We have introduced the Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) export feature, providing a modern and widely supported format for rendering 2D vector graphics. SVG offers compatibility with major programs and web browsers, surpassing our previous AI implementation. We highly recommend utilizing SVG for all your future projects.

finalToon Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed an issue with the Distance Line Effect in 3D Effects not functioning properly.
  • Resolved the problem with the "View Independent Strokes" option not working as intended.
  • The Output File Dialog now defaults to the standard 3ds Max Export Project Folder.
  • SWF format has been removed due to obsolescence and security concerns.

finalRender: VDB Grid Merging

We are thrilled to introduce the new VDB Grid Merging option in finalRender. This feature allows you to merge three individual Float Grids into a single vector (color) grid, enhancing rendering capabilities with fR-PyroVDB or fR-VolumeVDB Material/Shader. Discover new possibilities for creating stunning visual effects with this powerful addition.

finalRender Bug Fixes:

  • Motion blur fix for deforming meshes.
  • Bug fix in the normal map shader.
  • Screen remapping added in matte/shadow/reflection shader.
  • Problem with material IDs in the render elements shader fixed.
  • Bug fix in the override material in the GPU kernel code.

To ensure optimal performance, we recommend updating your NVIDIA drivers.
