Announcement - Coming Soon - 3D ProAnimator v7
Version 7 of 3D ProAnimator is coming soon, and is filled with new features. This upgrade is all about lighting, but it's lighting like you've never seen before. You'll get to create Lighting Rigs with flares, trusses, lighting fixtures, volumetric cones, all animated without using keyframes, and all craftable in ways that would take you days of work if done in a standard 3D program.

Here's a teaser video showing some of the new features in action. When you watch this video keep in mind that the program is creating everything you see on the fly. There is no modeling or keyframes involved, and there are only 3 lighting tracks.
