Improved:- New Shadow System:
A New Method To Improve Shadow Quality, Range and User Options
The shadow effect now includes an option for three quality levels. This allows you to create ultra sharp shadow edges up to a level where you can see the individual leaves of a tree.
The shadow routines are completely rewritten to extend their range further in the distance while providing excellent sharpness at close ranges. The new enhancements particularly improve the quality of aerial shots and sun studies.

Pro users can now load their .ls4 file into an existing scene. After selecting a file the options is presented to import light, models, imports or any combination of them.
Create Favourites in the Library:
The content browser allows you to add models to your favourites list so you can quickly find them later. When you have assigned one or more favourites, a new tab will appear listing all your favorite models.

* Easily transfer effects from one clip to another, or one project to another.
