    • This release still works on WIndows XP but not the GPU-accelerated part. We recommend Windows 7 or 8, as you'll get best results and performance with it. A good graphics card or chip (GPU) is recommended for the fastest possibvle 3D rendering and other modules that have been ported to use the GPU.


  • You will get an installer. Save it locally, then run it.
  • You will also get unzip keys for the extra, optional toon brushes. Look for them in the README file.
