AfterBurn delivers rendering speed improvements, workflow enhancements and modularity/extensibility.

Here is a short list of what’s new in AfterBurn :

– New AfterBurn Shadow Map brings a great speed improvement without significant shadow quality loss. Speed improvement over Raytraced Shadows in AfterBurn 3.2 can be more than a factor of five for dynamic scenes and even up to factor of ten for static cloud animations.

– AfterBurn no longer needs special type of shadows to be able to calculate self-shadowing effect as it supports standard light’s interface for atmospheric shadows (light’s “Atmosphere Shadows” option).

– FusionWorks support. AfterBurn will properly blend with FumeFX, ScatterVL Pro and Standard 3ds max Fog. FusionWorks support also brings output to FusionWorks Z-Depth Render Element as well as output to non-clamped colors, used in .exr, or .hdr file formats.

– AFC View is a new workflow improvement that allows users to edit all AFCs and Gradients from one place.

– Geometry Clipping option enables that particles that are contained inside geometry do not render outside of it.

– Completely reworked built in noise types are now in form of a plug-ins for AfterBurn that can also be developed by 3rd parties. New 3D Texture Map allows users to use 3ds max 3D Map as a noise generator inside AfterBurn.

– AfterBurn Daemons user interface is displayed directly inside AfterBurn UI.

– New Cebas’ ThinkingParticles controller that allows using TP’s channels to replace AfterBurn values.

– New max script functionality.
