"Very good renders,that's about it!"

February 13, 2014  |  By Wowzaworks

 |  Version: Cheetah3D 6.3.1

Pros

Capable of excellent renders...

Cons

...but, 5000 pixel limit on size. I haven't found anything anywhere on the materials nodes. I still haven't a clue what some of the nodes are for! I have spent days trying to create the proper texture material for an obj. You can't have a bump map with an obj that wasn't created in Cheetah!
Hexagon and Wings are much easier to use for modeling. You can not "aim" at the obj you are working on like you can in Hex. and Wings. I don't find it to be Mac-like, and don't like the extra steps (m clicks) to select obj's, or areas.

Summary

What good is a great render if you don't have the right materials or textures.
If there were some tutorials on the material nodes, then I would say buy it. Not until then.

Pros

The explanation of the various functions of the menu are well defined. Very easy to relate without getting too technical. Some of the icon are hilarious.

"Inexpensive and Powerful"

April 05, 2005  |  By VersionTrackerUserOpinion

 |  Version: Cheetah3D 2.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I recently decided I wanted to try making a 3D game, so the first thing I needed to find was a 3D modeling program. After trying a few (very expensive) programs, I stumbled across this one. It's amazing how many useful features there are! Almost everytime I need a specific feature, I can whip out the in-depth documentation and find exactly what I want.

When I first started using version 2.1, I was experiencing intermittent crashes using the point slide and scalpel tools. Fortunately the developer was VERY responsive to my problem and sent me a new version which works perfectly!

My only complaints are that Cheetah 3D seems to be missing a way to "unwrap" selected polygons (for easier texturing), and any support for bones (although technically it isn't vital for what I'm making).

Overall I am VERY satisfied with Cheetah 3D. I use it all the time!
