Today we released our 2nd FREE Service Update – Build 202 for Cycles 4D.

We have updated to the latest Cycles core (as of the 19th May 2017) which includes many fixes in the core, plus rendering features and workflow improvements. This FREE update contains over 30 bug fixes and over 20 changes to increase performance and stability. Rest assured, we will continue to make these improvements to our products and services.
