New car prop (BETA)
Update V2.5.8d adds a new car prop to your studio library and props selection. This SUV is high detailed and comes with various options available:
- Open all doors individually
- Turn the headlights on
- Adjust the steering
- Change the color of the car
- Left-hand drive/right-hand drive selectable
You can find the new car “Car 2” in the props library (filter category: Accessories)
(Beta Info: Our vehicles in set.a.light 3D are still experimental and only intended to be used as a prop. Reflections in the car paint are not rendered accurately. We’re working on it.)
New fitness props available
The content library got extended with lots of new fitness props for you to play with. From now on you can use objects like a tennis racket, tennis ball, gymnastics ball, basketball hoop, ergometer, treadmill, weight bench, wall bars, gymnastics boxes, yoga mat, trampoline and lots more in your sets.
This props update gives you a variety of new composition possibilities for your setups. Try it out. :)
New option for the picturewall: Transparency
There’s a new option available for the picturewall with which you can make it transparent. To do this, place the picture wall in your setup, select it and navigate to the detail settings on the left. Choose “Transparent” under the “Material” section and set the level of transparency using the slider. If you combine this setting with “Self-Luminous” you can create nice effects, visualize light painting ideas or simulate a compositing concept.
Note: If the picture wall is set to transparent, it will not cast any shadows.
We hope you like the new features and look forward to discovering new setups and creations from you in the community and on social media..
