E-on Software on Wednesday introduced a free “
Personal Learning Edition
” (PLE) of Vue 6 Infinite, its software for creating, animating and rendering natural 3D environments.
The PLE is a fully functional version of the software designed for personal, non-commercial use only. Files can’t be exchanged with other Vue 6 users and renders are watermarked with a logo. But otherwise, users can create complete projects, save their work and export it to other applications, render stills and animations without size or length limits, and learn at their own pace — the PLE doesn’t expire.
The Vue 6 PLE includes all materials and atmosphere presets, as well as a complete reference manual in PDF.
E-on is offering two separate editions of Vue 6 — Infinite, a standalone version, and xStream, an integrated version that works inside other 3D software like LightWave and Cinema 4D. At present, only the Infinite version is available on Mac OS X.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.3 or later, 2GHz or faster processor (Intel included), 1GB free RAM, 200MB hard disk space and 1024 x 768 resolution in 16 bit color.
