Cheetah3D is a lean, fast, and elegant 3D modeling, rendering, and animation package with an easy learning curve. It simplifies the world of computer-generated imaging, enabling creation of 3D artwork for the next iPhone game or to make a first animated character. Cheetah3D 7 has large sections of its core completely rewritten and modernized, laying the foundation for subsequent point releases and making the overall program leaner and faster. Cheetah3D v7.0 has been re-architected at a foundational level, likely tapping into Apple’s latest graphics APIs, such as Metal. An updated UI reflects internal “leaning” of the code base with the major new feature being its new unbiased renderer.

“Overall a good animation software”

Simple interface and easy to use remains the major strengths of this software. Camera is attractive and capable of import and export of objects. Limited to only mac users and is a bit expensive. Useful for animators, not beginners.

Cheetah3D Presence in 3D Animation Software
Cheetah3D is a computer graphics program for 3D modelling, animation and rendering. It is written in Cocoa for MacOS. The program is aimed at beginning and amateur 3D artists. It offers a number of medium and high-end features in conjunction with an intuitive user interface. Cheetah 3D still an excellent software application to do some easy tasks, one of the best feature of Cheetah 3D is the user interface and how simple is to make standard scenes and animations with these tools. It is really instinctive and with high efficiency. The most noticeable change in v7.3 is probably the support of the macOS Mojave Dark Mode and the biggest upgrade ever was the release of Cheetah3D 7.0.
