“Release 16 provides features and enhancements for users at every skill level and discipline,” Manuel Casasola Merkle, Partner and Creative Director at Aixsponza states. “Even as members of the beta testing team, we found R16 incredibly stable and utilized it on the new ‘Dreadnought’ game trailer. The new PolyPen tool especially speeds up modeling tremendously which allowed us to achieve higher quality results in less time. R16 is a must-have upgrade!”
