Beta 5 of Inspire Render and Inspire Studio are available

In this beta we focused primarily on the following:
  • Animation -- We added a basic animation system with keyframe and path animation (and Real-Time rendering).
    see https://youtu.be/dlWHFlHRDe0 and https://youtu.be/wKpF384N6IY for examples
  • Bug fixing -- Lots of bugs fixed (including ivan.dedos .obj import bug)
  • Refinements -- There is now a specific ToolBelt for rendering-related tools (Studio)

Animation Notes
  • Rendering through DarkRoom (Thea engine) creates a folder in the standard "Images" folder with the name of the scene file and inside it, each frame is stored as an independent .png image.
    We understand this makes things a little more difficult, but there are also some notable upsides:
    1. You can start looking at the pictures and see problems without waiting for the whole animation to be rendered.
    2. Ensures the highes possible quality when working with Adobe Premiere /Final Cut / Sony Vegas / etc.
    3. It's easy to stop and resume an animation rendering.
    4. It's also possible to re-render just a little part of the animation.
  • Rendering through RealTime directly creates an .mp4, the rendering speed is so fast that there's no need in this case to stop/resume a rendering. Even though the quality is not comparable to Thea, it can be a good choice for preview animations.
  • RealTime rendering is "What You See (in the 3D view) Is What You Get". This means, for example, that you need to esplicitely hide the grid if you don't want it in the movie. You can also render a movie in wireframe mode if you like (or any other display mode)
  • We are preparing tutorial videos on animation, they will be added to the landing page videos soon, keep checking out that page for updates.

is the numbering correct? I thought that if this is beta 5, maybe the number after the 2019 would be 5 and not 3 or is that from something else?

This is beta 5 for tests of Inspire Studio / Render 2019 release number 3.
Altair releases, each quarter of a year, a new update for the same software package but with bugs fixes. The number 3 is for the release version.
I hope it helped here. :roll:
