“EON 7.0 is a major mile stone for EON Reality in our now over 10 years of 3D interactive software development. In a market situation when many companies are cutting back on R&D EON has been more aggressive and launched several new products in the past 12 months. For our users EON 7.0 will include many new and exciting features such as a new physics system with support for fluids and particles, new updated importers, a new light editor to make it easier to use advanced lighting features and materials.
