SAN DIEGO, CA (PRWEB) January 24, 2006
(http://FrameForge3D.com/) announces immediate availability of Version 2 of FrameForge® 3D Studio, the first multi-camera, optically correct previsualization software for film, video and commercial directors. FrameForge helps to explore, sharpen and ultimately convey visual concepts to clients, producers and investors, while at the same time acquiring vital production data for cast and crew to make that vision come alive.
“Action Director Spiro Razatos and I had a blast working with it, spitballing ideas and camera angles in real time, trying different lenses and perspectives in 3D space,” recounts Jacques Haitkin, Second Unit Director of Photography on Herbie: Fully Loaded. “On a production level, it allowed the rest of the production operating staff to see what was in our heads, saving time, providing clarity and avoiding confusion. We could not have done as well without FF3D.”
Others find FrameForge 3D to be an effective means of creating presentations. "[I] was able to take several commercial projects away from much bigger companies,” said ad agency producer Dennis Looney. “My clients appreciated how quickly I was able to turn their ideas into functional storyboards.”
By offering a range of critical preproduction features, FrameForge 3D is poised to play a larger role in all productions. Director Johannes Roberts affirms: “I would no more start shooting my next film without using FrameForge than I would start filming without a script.”

Step Up To The Power of Previz!™
The FrameForge ‘Multi-Camera Control Room’ is a virtual film studio where users can build rooms and spaces, place cameras, props and actors anywhere with drag-n-drop simplicity. This creates a virtual but true-to-life location in the user’s computer to explore and experiment with multiple camera angles, shots and lenses in an optically accurate 3D world.
FrameForge comes with over 750 unique WorldReady™ Objects that work like their real counterparts and intrinsically know how to interact with FF3D actors. Drag an actor to a chair and he sits, drag a gun or cigarette to a hand and becomes held, dresser drawers pull open and trees lose their leaves. Further, actor features like ‘reach-for’ and ‘look-at’ simplify posing that can be modified down to a single finger's joint.
Notable new features include:
– Faster Rendering with OpenGL Hardware Acceleration, Texture Sharing and other optimizations;
