Ratings and Reviews
Great app but there are some cons
First of all - i'm very happy to say Reallision did a good job. They improved almost everything. I like the way character's head look really 3d, much better and more realistic than in CT6.0.
At the first moment i wanted to get my money back, because it doesn't support project files from CT6.0 and I've done a lot of work before so I have to do it again. After my anger gone down I realised that the process of animating is much simplier in this version, export works as charm, there's much better support for rgba images with alpha (in ex. pngs).
So if you have dozens of older projects you still work on I don't recommend you to buy it now, but if you're just starting some new stuff just go for it, cos it's worth it.
Big thanks for Reallusion they finally did CT for mac. It makes my production process 4 times shorter than using PC version, exporting to pngs then writing to pendrive, importing here on my mac etc. is horrible and now I've got much more time for some serious stuff.
