Announcing Element 3D V2.2

Super busy but I wanted to share some exciting news, Element 3D V2.2 is almost ready! We’ve added some very cool new features for compositing, rendering, workflow and design!  Plus some improved C4D integration.  There are at least 5 impressive new features in this update!

The poster graphic was also created entirely inside of Element 3D V2.2 using the Motion Design 2 pack!

Upgrading:
Element 3D V2.2 will be a free upgrade from V2!
If you are still running V1.6, you can upgrade to V2 now and receive the new update when it is ready!

Needless to say we have been working hard, developing new plug-ins, I’m directing a new short film and working on some great new tutorials! Now I just need to finish them!
