Eningen, Germany - Sep 2nd, 2009 - Trinigy, an industry leading 3D game engine provider with over 100 licensees and offices in Germany and Austin, TX, today announced the release of version 7.6 of its Vision Engine. The latest version offers a host of new features designed to give game developers more workflow freedom, more runtime power and more creative choices. Some of the key features included are new animation and component editors, deferred rendering, and all-new integrations with partner technologies.
"The growth of new technologies and the speed at which those technologies are coming to market have given rise to new forms of games and new methods of distribution," said Dag Frommhold, managing partner at Trinigy. "Supporting those changes requires middleware that is flexible enough to help a wide range of teams achieve higher quality content faster for multiple platforms and genres. Trinigy's Vision Engine has always been designed to do just that and every feature of this latest release builds on that core principle."
Highlights of the Vision Engine 7.6 include:

- Animation Transition Editor: This new editor empowers artists to easily create animation transitions without the aid of programmers
