- Caustics speed optimized
- Overall optimizations in geometry storage (most visible benefits will be seen with displacement, and scenes with very complex geometry)
- 2.5D Displacement introduced, for even more significant improvements to memory and render time savings when displacement is used
- Overall optimizations including for geometry pre-processing, scenes with a very large number of instances, the Corona ColorCorrect, and more!
The best 3D modeling software will not automatically make you a better artist - you still need to hone these 3D skills. But when it comes to creating incredible illustrations and animations, having the right 3D modeling software for your style, skill level and budget certainly helps.
Of course, what suits you as a beginner or professional may not be suitable for another artist. But it doesn’t matter if you are a 2D artist seeking advanced training or an experienced 3D professional seeking to update existing tools, there is a program that is right for you - and you will find it in this guide. You can help start the creative process by downloading a few free textures or free 3D models.
