New additions to Anima 2.5

Moreover, there are new additions to the software as the new revamped visuals (lighting and 3d viewport shader improvements) and a new material and texture system that allows selecting render quality in the export options and plugins in order to optimize rendering times. Actor assets will now store different quality levels of the texture maps and the Actor editor displays a reference decal on the left view useful for determining the orientation and size of the character.

It is also important to highlight that the auto-center support and free movement for background models has been vastly improved. Background models can be freely moved inside anima and the applied transformation will be reversed when exporting scenes or using anima Plugin. This is very useful for working with background models that are not centered in the origin 0,0,0.
