Recommended Posts

Hi there, first off, I have no affiliation with Caligari other than having used their products for many years now... I figured I'd let you guys know that their 3D modeling and rendering software trueSpace is now free in it's latest version 7.6 This is a pretty impressive 3D modeling software which works well as a game content creation package. Check it out at http://www.caligari.com/

Run it as an administrator.

It crashes at the title screen when you don't run as admin. You right click on the shortcut and choose run as admin, or you can look in the shortcut properties and set it to always run as admin.

ZeroWolf, 100% agreement. It's even worse that the program is running 6.6 and 7.6 at the same time and has a bridge between the 2 versions, copying data over constantly.

I saw that the other day on the XNA forums. It would be nice to have a good replacement for XSI|ModTool, which constantly crashes on me and is now a problem since I have to sell my game on XNA Community Games. I didn't get very far when playing around with it...does anybody know whether it has decent support for custom DX9 shaders/effects via SAS or whatever? I currently have that all hooked up pretty nicely with ModTool, and I'd hate to migrate to a tool that didn't support that.

Yes. The whole workspace side of the program is a DX9 real time shader thing. It renders everything you build as if it were a videogame scene, with full shadows and everything. It includes a realtime renderer option, and you can just render out a movie as it plays in real time, and it looks almost as good as a basic raytrace.
