Other than these new features, there are a few bug fixes in this new version. Here follows the details:

  • Water effect: Reduced a little bit the wave speed and amplitude.
  • Advanced Particles Effect: Changed display of “Random Speeds” with 3 decimals.

  • Transitions: Changed some details to make some transitions smoother (there was 1 pixel offsets on several).
  • New Click Object Display Mode: Objects can now appear after a delay or depending on user click
  • “Gang of three” font: Removed a problem that could lead to a “memory access violation” problem.
  • Movie Importation: *.mpg, *.mpeg and *.mp4 are now accepted.
  • Bug Report: Re-added user email in sent report.
  • Powerpoint Import: Corrected a bug when importing from powerpoint: some transitions were not correctly created.
  • Export to movie: Sometimes end of sound was cropped, it is now fixed.
  • 3D Cube: 3 new animation effects where you can change side on mouse click.
