The long-awaited Beta version 3DF Zephyr 6.5 – codename “Fragola” 🍓 – is now in its Beta phase and officially ready for testing!
As always, beta testing is crucial during the development process of the upcoming stable release. And, as you already know, we need your help to test the software out with real-world datasets and find potential bugs we can fix before launching the new official release.
Are you interested in beta testing? Great! Read below how to get your beta key!
What’s new in 3DF Zephyr Beta 6.5?
In Fragola, we focused on improving our Structure from Motion algorithm, 3DF Samantha, to reach an even greater accuracy with faster computation times. Other than that, obviously, we optimized existing features and implemented new ones, like the ArtEngine integration, thanks to our partnership with Artomatix at Unity Technologies.
If you missed it, you could read the most recent Article including the highlights of the upcoming release and the updated (yet not definitive) Development Status Report on our Wiki.
The current beta includes all of these improvements and, while it is not representative of the final product, many of these new features/improvements are ready for testing by end-users.
Please note that the manuals and the translations of the different languages currently may not be completely up to date.
How can I get the beta?
If you want to go ahead and become a beta tester, you can already request access using the form below. We will then manually send you an invitation code that you can redeem once logged into your 3Dflow account page to get your beta key and download the beta installer (it may take a little bit longer for us to answer your Beta requests due to the Winter break). Besides, any beta participant can also generate up to three invitation codes from their account page.
Application to the beta is currently closed.
But don’t worry! You can still get access to the beta testing by joining our Discord server. We would very much appreciate you making part of our Community! Our Discord server is the perfect place to talk directly with the 3Dflow team and other Zephyr users in a friendly environment 🥰
Again, please be aware that the beta version does not correspond to the final product and may contain bugs that could potentially make you lose your work – do not use this in production environments!
Please note that beta keys from previous beta events are no longer valid, and you will need to generate a new one.
Meanwhile, best wishes for a great holiday season from the 3Dflow team! 🎄
