Software announces Beta availability for version 2.0 of Power Booleans, the second
major release of its popular "Power" plug-in for Discreet 3ds
Max / Viz. Power Booleans 1.0 is a great
tool, but Power Booleans 2.0 is a spectacular
tool for both the game developer and users of subdivision
surfaces. Game developers will love the level editing
and enhanced mesh editing features. Power Booleans
2.0 includes the following new features:
* Level editing (with visual hierarchy display)
* Reorder Boolean operands
* Easy modification of Boolean operation type
* Improved "Quad based" meshing to facilitate mesh
editing (sub-division, mesh smooth, etc.)
* Site licensing
level editing and improved meshing are built on top of
outstanding proprietary polygon modeling technology.
This technology provides significant advantages for game
development. Game Engine development companies can
license the technology from nPower Software for inclusion with
Game Packs. It is possible to License Power Booleans for
GMAX and also to license the underlying C++ source code for
non GMAX environments. Contact nPower Software for licensing and product
