Keeping you on the cutting edge with Hair & Fur, mental ray 3.4, and Autodesk® VIZ features for design visualization

Coming in April! With 3ds max 7.5, exclusively for 3ds max 7 software subscription members, Discreet further empowers 3D artists who want to raise the bar for their work. Whether it is in feature films or state-of-the-art design visualization, 3ds max 7.5 delivers what artists need.

Release 7.5 will provide new and enhanced functionality in three key areas:

• Hair and Fur—Based on Joe Alter's highly regarded "Shave and a Haircut" solution, Hair and Fur will offer numerous styling and dynamics tools for creating amazingly realistic hair and other strand-derivative effects.

mental ray 3.4—Delivering numerous optimizations, mental ray 3.4 will include faster final gathering performance, double precision computation for ray tracing and fast rasterization for first-generation rays.

Discreet Subscription program members will get immediate access to all of the new features in 3ds max 7.5, including Hair & Fur, mental ray 3.4, and VIZ—at no additional cost—the minute they become available. And don't forget, you can download the Cloth Extension and multiple e-learning modules for 3ds max 7 right now!

Finally a hair system!

Bottom line,
3ds max 7.5 will be available in April for download for Subscription members only.


I guess it'll be cool, but announcing things ahead always sounds suspicios to me. I hope that all the new stuff is ready and at the moment is just being tested to be rock-solid. I like the 7 version a lot (maybe now because max became "mature"), many people do and I hope discreet has learned the lesson on stability from now on. There's no point in new features if they're just dust to throw at the competition.
