The Change Log: 3ds Max, Silhouette FX, ZBrush, CoreMelt, More

the Changelog

It has been a crazy week for updates! They just keep coming! We have updates from Autodesk, Silhouette FX, Coremelt, Boris FX, Zynaptiq, Blue Cat Audio, and NUGEN Audio.

Although these are small point updates, they’re often important updates. They can add support for hosts and remove support for older hosts. Sometimes bugs that have been driving you mad can get fixed, and other times it’s a crucial security fix. And, sometimes they’re just giving you some great new features!

I’ve also tried to make The Change Log more concise so I’ve removed product descriptions and left it as a button to learn more about a product. Scroll down to see what’s new!

Autodesk 3ds MaxAutodesk 3ds Max 2020.1

Autodesk 3ds Max 2020.1 came out on Wednesday, June 12.

You can now easily customize, merge, and visualize shortcuts keys with a new hotkey system and enhance your workspace experience by extending your viewports across various monitors.

Plus, building upon the feedback we received on the 2020 chamfer modifier updates, we have polished and provided an additional update to bring you a more predictable modeling tool.

The full Autodesk 3ds Max 2020.1 release notes are available at Autodesk Help but there’s a nice overview video that is easily digestible, below.

  • They added a new Clamp node in the Color group which clamps out super-blacks and or super-whites by default.
  • Paint > Profile > Buildup allows the opacity to accumulate so it doesn’t get clamped by the Opacity parameter value.

They also had some changes and bug fixes in this update. To see all of the changes, see the Updates tab on the Silhouette product page. Silhouette v7.5.3 is a free upgrade for Silhouette v7 customers and your current v7 license will run v7.5.3 without making any changes.
