^^ On Windows it offers 64-bit support (supported over 2GB memory rendering)!
^^ Create QuickTime VR panoramas or object movies directly from Shade
^^ Support for 3D sound (wav, au, aif, aiff), that users can import and mix with animation and output together into movie file.
^^ Path Constraints plugin - easy to create linked motion.
^^ Boolean and Bezier modeling, Polygon mesh modeling, Auto-smoothing of curves and more to detail projects.
^^ Global Illumination renderer includes Photon Mapping, Path Tracing, Raytracing and Radiosity-with-physics for photorealistic imagery. Callisto, the rendering plugin with global illumination and detailed settings, has been upgraded. A translucent shader and metallic shader have been added, and aberration is now supported.
^^ Network rendering and render queue with support for unlimited nodes (professional) or one additional node (standard). Shade also able to automatically search all available ShadeGrid servers that running on the same local area network and display the IP addresses in the preference dialog.
^^ Supports pixel depth in 32-bits, 64-bits and 128-bits for all rendering image output.

^^ OBJ, IGES5.3, DXF format support for integration into a CAD-based environment.
^^ 100 levels of Undo and Redo. ShadeExplorer U.I. improved with instant file preview and added keyboard control.
^^ Shade integrates with Poser, ArchiCAD, Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, as well as other 2D, 3D and CAD applications.
Advanced Modeling Tools
Use Boolean modeling, Polygon mesh modeling, and Auto-smoothing of curves for those projects focused on detail. Use Metaballs for physics-based modeling and organic natural designs. One hundred levels of Undo/Redo provide the ultimate in design flexibility.
Ideas Rendered Photorealistic
A powerful Global Illumination renderer, including Radiosity, casts soft shadows and natural color bleeding. Use Raytracing for light reflections and refractions. Output many formats to showcase your radiant designs.
Flexible 3D Design
From graphic design to illustration, architecture to city landscapes, Shade's diverse set of modeling tools allow you to create your dream design. Use intuitive Bezier tools to quickly bring ideas to life. On-line and tangent control points allow quick visualization and easy tailoring of curves and 3D surfaces.
Large Libraries of 3D Content
Shade comes with a rich selection of buit-in 3D content to get you started fast. Simply drag and drop furniture, cars, doors, windows, musical instruments and much more into your design. Save time by using these libraries to populate you environments!
Integrate with Poser
PoserFusion 2 provides the best integration of Poser characters into Shade. Enhance and change figures with a comprehensive set of mesh editing tools or create props using Shade’s powerful Bezier and polygon based modeling tools. Shade is a must have for every serious Poser user.
