Gain more power to create—just added
Experience greater RenderEngine performance with numerous under-the-hood improvements—using your existing hardware. Without changing any other components. Get the power you need to create higher quality graphics, and boost your visual identity and production value exponentially.
View your work in high resolution—just added
No need to make resolution adjustments when working with high-res media. With support for high-resolution monitors, Maestro | Designer can now scale its application display to your required resolution, making it easier to prep, create, view, and refine content in up to 4K resolution. Take advantage of today’s high-res displays and see the fruits of your labor in stunning clear detail.
Speed up review and approvals
With new improvements and advancements made to RenderEngine, creating and sending previews of the content for which you seek editorial approval has never been easier. You can now send scene content directly to RenderEngine’s internal VideoEngine—locally or remotely—to render a clip or sequence of images displaying the scene content. This eliminates the added steps of having to externally capture content or use Maestro | News (formerly Maestro) or Maestro | Branding (formerly 3DPlay) to render files.
Gain more creative flexibility
With the new advanced Geometry modifiers, you can now customize base objects right in Maestro | Designer (formerly 4Designer), enabling you to create new elements and designs without the need for third-party modeling tools. Designs never before possible in Maestro | Designer or 3Designer.
Build beautiful bar charts easily
Forget having to design a graph from scratch when you need to share a range of data to viewers. You can now accelerate the process of creating and customizing high-quality bar charts using a wide range of premade elements. And because all of these elements are editable, you can quickly update charts as data or needs change.
Get tons of improvements
With a wide range of user-requested features, improvements, and fixes added, you can now work faster and easier than ever. Build special functionality into your scenes with extended Photoshop import support. Visualize heat map data as 2D textures natively in Maestro | Designer—no plug-in required. And use Maestro | Designer on the latest Windows 10 computers.
