Can't wait for the demo to try out the new anti-aliasing for animations. I hope it does what it says on the specs page.

The cloud engine is (as always) amazing.

I hope they have a new, "non-crashing" feature in this release. :)

This time I don't see anyting extra special. Vue 5 brought us Ecosystems. Vue 6 brought us Godrays, wind emitters, spectral clouds and paint on Ecosystems. 7 is not really bringing anything truly new.

6.5 even brought us Light and cloud interaction

Version 7.....eh?
Faster render, slightly more realistic, and supposedly less crashes but that is about it.

well, less crashed and bugs would be the best new feature they could make, because version 6 was hell working with for me....

The video looks like its working nice now, but have to test it out myself before judging, because those kinda videos always look nice :)

So I wasn't the only one with weird crashes with Vue.

I had the chance to try Vue 5 a long time ago, and while it was an impressive piece of software in its features, using it felt like defusing a bomb. Ecosystems were particularly crash-prone, if I recall correctly.

Hopefully Vue 7 is a bit more solid.

What's the word on Ozone 3.0 being updated to work in Maya 2008 or 2009 (in my case 2008)?

I love the software, but need it in the current versions.

I like that it can be used now as totally a plugin inside the app.
That will be the thing that gets my purchase.

thats been the case with Vue6 Xstream also - at least for some people ;-)

vue7 xstream do work much better then vue6xstream and fully integrates to the host app.

in my opinion it cant even be compared to how vue6xstream worked or didnt work.

It is interesting.

I'm wondering if Vue 7 Complete has support for
multi-threaded rendering tho, or is this only for Vue 7 Infinite and xStream?

No Vray compatibility yet, oh well

i hope its not a pre beta like the vue xstreme 6 version. the integration into c4d was horrible.

The C4D integration is superb. You can paint ecosystems in any C4d view. You can rotate/scale/transform any Vue object using the Cinema tools. You do 90% of your Vue work right inside Cinema's interface.

You've got the full software, right? Have you used it with anything other than C4d?

The rest of us bums are waiting on the demo. ;)

No, only C4D. From what I've read, ecopainting inside the host app is only possible in Cinema and Max atm.

from the vue website :

"Vue 7 xStream for 3ds Max and Cinema4D will even let you paint EcoSystems interactively (on Vue objects or on native objects), directly through the host application's viewports*.
* This feature is currently only available in 3ds Max and Cinema4D.
XSI, LightWave and Maya support is planned, but is still pending development by Softimage/Newtek/Autodesk."







cheers

Argh, I wonder if that will be part of the paid 7.5 update, then.

maybe its good integrated, but somebody from the c4d maxon section said its crashing like hell on his pc ( like vue xstreme 6 did too )

Other people in the thread are saying it's stable, so if you are worried, it's probably best to wait for the demo and see if your machine is blessed or cursed.

Too bad it's not fully integrated into Maya. I don't like the sound of the quote from e-on, "pending development by Softimage/Newtek/Autodesk." Sounds like it could be a long time, if at all.

Thanks, I found it. The guy who has crashes is on the mac, so I can't say anything about that. On the PC, it works really well.

I am (was) a true believer, cause I was under the impression that the integration into Maya would be there in v7. Sigh. Oh well. It looks nice in Max. D'oh.

bruno021

Well, ecopainting aside, the integration in Maya is the same as for others. But I agree, ecopainting in your host app viewports is way cool.

I guess all I really care about in the end is stability. I work on a PC in Maya, so I hope the demo is stable for me.
