Senior elf
Feb 15, 2014
Vixen 3.4 Update 2 has been released and the Vixen team strongly recommends anyone on 3.4 or 3.4 Update 1 to update as it has a couple of crucial bug fixes.

New features include:
- Snowflake accumulation option
- Meteor effect - Added ground options to allow meteors to hit the ground and create craters.
- Reverse Colour Gradient - As per the Inline Curve option to hold alt + shift + left mouse button will reverse the Curve, now the Colour Gradient can be reverse by hovering of the Gradient in the Effect editor and hold alt + shift + left mouse button.
- Check out the right click context menu on the display preview for some added options.
