Universal Audio announced new UAD Software v7.8 for its UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform and Apollo audio interfaces. The software features an all new Thermionic Culture Vulture plug-in ($299 US) modeling the original hardware distortion unit's three distinct all-valve circuit topologies and features Universal Audio's first ever pentode tube circuit model.

Version 7.8 also introduces two new Softube-developed plug-ins: Valley People Dyna-mite ($199 US) and Tonelux Tilt EQ ($99 US).

Designed to speed up EQ workflow and enhance creativity, the Tonelux Tilt EQ plug-in allows for quick, simple, and effective broad-stroke EQ moves. With the single Tilt control, engineers and producers can quickly mix as they go. Turn it to the right to cut lows and boost highs, turn it to the left to cut highs and boost lows. The Tonelux Tilt EQ Plug-In also models the transformer found in the Tonelux hardware, adding a subtle distortion for bass frequencies, fattening up the low end of a track. [source]

Pixar Animation Studios releases RenderMan 20
Pixar released version 20 of its Academy Award-winning RenderMan software, introducing major innovations allowing cinematic quality imagery to be created more easily and faster than previously possible. Highlights include a game-changing noise reduction technology that directly addresses the problem of image artifacts associated with physically based ray tracers, massively reducing the time needed to deliver completed shots and images.

A new Marschner hair shader represents the first time Pixar has shipped shading technology specifically developed for use in its feature films, making available truly Pixar quality hair and fur. In addition, RenderMan's tradition of advanced customization is emphasized through a new light filter API. Rendering shots for dailies is also faster than ever with new enhancements to RenderMan's noted image checkpointing, allowing entire shots to be quickly previewed nearly immediately and at full resolution. RenderMan 20 is compatible with Mac OS 10.9, 10.8 and 10.7, Windows 8 and 7, and Linux glibc 2.12 or higher and gcc 4.4.5 and higher. RenderMan 20 is also compatible with versions 2014, 2015, and 2016 of Autodesk's Maya, and with version 2.0 of The Foundry's KATANA.
