e-on software has announced a free personal learning edition (PLE) version of its flagship product, Vue 6 Infinite

Vue 6 Infinite is a widely-adopted professional solution for creating, animating and rendering natural 3D environments for movie, broadcast and architecture.

The new PLE version is fully functional. Users can create complete projects, save work and export it into other applications, and all rendering operations are supported. It ships with all Vue 6 material and atmosphere presets, as well as the complete PDF Reference manual.

Nicholas Phelps, president of e-on software, said: "3D professionals can now experience, free of charge, how Vue's natural environments can become a definitive production asset."

Users can download the Vue 6 PLE free of charge from e-on software's website. The software is for personal, non-commercial use only. Files created with the PLE cannot be exchanged with other PLE users and are not compatible with other versions of Vue. (Renders may be watermarked and carry a logo.)
