Element 3D V2 Official Release Date!

Element 3D V2 will be available in 2 weeks on Dec 2!

Yeah! I know I’m 2 days past my November goal but we are really happy with the progress and we needed the extra time to get everything dialed in! This update is insane!

What can I say, we like to push the limits of technology and features, but at the end of the day it is important that we release a product that is high quality!

Stay tuned for even more announcements as we reveal other big features!
(and you’ll see why things took a little longer!)

Additional Product Announcements:
We are also excited to announce the all new Pro Shaders 2! Now with massive 2K Maps and physical shaders plus the new Motion Design 2 model pack that was designed for Element 3D V2

If you haven’t watched our first look video, check it out Now!

In the mean time:

  • Make sure your Graphics card driver is up to date!
  • Maybe check out a new graphics cards to get the most out of E3D V2
  • Think of all the cool things you will be able to create with V2!

PS: We are still tweaking the website and hope to have it dialed in this week too!

Sporting a New Design!

I’m not really sure how long it has been since we have redesigned the website but we thought it was time!

The new design is focused on content so we finally made the page wider. We’ve also updated the tutorial section so that you can watch the tutorial you click on with few clicks. The project file and related information is all in one place too. One of the bigger new features is the tutorial playlists. Right now, I’ve just created a few playlists of some of my favorite tutorials but what this mechanism will allow me to do is create more in depth training that has multiple parts and still fit into our typical system. Lots of important stuff behind the scenes!

Noted Features:

  • Wider page width! (Dynamic sizes coming for mobile)
  • Fewer clicks to access tutorials and content
  • Tutorial Playlists
  • Better resolution for embedded videos on blog

We are still transitioning so please give us time to get through all the small bugs, we’re working on it!
