Posted by on May 4, 2020 in Announcements, Critical, EVS Release | Comments Off on Release of Earth Volumetric Studio 2020.5

The last time I was this excited about a software release was August 2016 when we released the first 64-bit version of Studio.  In many ways, the May 2020 release is far more significant.  However, before I list the new features you will be able to enjoy, I need to make you aware of the requirements to run Earth Volumetric Studio 2020.5. All Enterprise and Floating license customers must uninstall their current license servers and install and configure the new CTech Universal License Server. Instructions are here.

I encourage you to submit examples of your most complex equations to support@ctech.com and I will be preparing a short tutorial on how to use node_computation and to demonstrate just how easy it is to do these same operations in Earth Volumetric Studio.
