"(February 20, 2007) Synthe FX, LLC has announced the immediate availability of DashRender 1.1, a Dashboard Widget for rendering Autodesk Maya scene files on Mac OS X. This new version brings the single-most requested feature, email message alerts, as well as a complete rewrite of it's core functions as a Cocoa plugin, resulting in major performance gains.
With an simple interface that is quick and easy to use, you will be rendering and keeping track of Maya renders like never before. No more fumbling around with writing commands in the terminal, only to result in frustrating syntax errors. Simply drag and drop your scene file onto the widget, and click render. That's it.
DashRender respects the settings and paths that users have already set up in their Maya scenes. Users can also set "per-render" options such as render size, start and end frames, performance settings, and also now have the ability to send email message alerts on render completion and errors.
DashRender can be purchased for download immediately from the Synthe FX web site. A special introductory price of $15.00 US Dollars has been extended until March 15, 2007. For more information, screenshots, and demo movies of this product in action, please see the DashRender specific product page Here.
