Frequent updates with planned features and future versions made free to current buyers, no extra costs.
Can render up to 1100 strands. Please render each pass individually and export each map thereafter if you see crashing due to memory overloading, this can also happen if you have extra Ram.
Move window around by dragging the top area or Alt-Tab to switch applications. Minimise function was causing textures to be cleared, something I have not managed to resolve.
After changing a slider or a colour, please wait a few seconds for the previewer to update. You can use the Fast, Medium or Slow mode buttons to improve this speed as it will show less preview strands. Fast mode will be the fastest but less strands previewed. Always do a test render with Color Map enabled.
HSD will auto save after you release the mouse-button, this will be the file it may ask for when you launch it.
Added Heart icon so you can see the 'pulse' of the software. If it is still, be patient, don't click as it can upset the intense rendering or file saving.
