Companies to increase the popularity of their software and gain new users use different strategies. There are those how pmg who organizes viral sales for its messiahStudio at 10$ per license and who, like StudioGPU, offers his program MachStudio Pro 2 for free, when previously it used to cost 4000$.
The strength of MachStudio Pro 2 is the ability to render a 3D scene in real-time, allowing a reduction of working time, which are usually very long.
Other features are:
- revolutionary workflow allowing manipulation of cameras, lighting, ambient occlusion, animation, and materials in real-time;
- seamless interoperability with most leading CG software programs including Autodesk Maya and 3ds Max;
- resolution independent, allowing renders at any resolution and format (e.g. 1080P, 720P, 16:9, 4:3, NTSC, PAL and even 2K and beyond);
- render as final frame, or as passes for additional compositing work.
