DRAPER, Utah (PRWEB) August 7, 2007
"I think that users will be amazed when they see what Carrara 6 will do for them," stated Chris Creek, executive vice-president of DAZ 3D, Inc. "Now that the entire DAZ 3D library of content is compatible with Carrara's advanced features, 3D artists everywhere will discover a whole new dimension of possibilities."
Historically, Carrara has been known for its broad set of 3D tools including modeling, rigging, animating, terrain-building, and rendering. With the aforementioned addition of the full support for its huge content library, as well as other major features, DAZ 3D believes Carrara 6 is taking a quantum leap forward from its previous versions.
"Carrara 6 fills what has been a long-time void in the 3D industry," says Dan Farr, president of DAZ 3D, Inc. "Never before has there existed a single solution for realistic figure posing and animation combined with advanced modeling, terrain-building, physics, and rendering that was readily compatible with such a large array of 3D assets."
The extensive support for DAZ 3D content includes handling of morph targets, the conversion of Surface Materials and complete Rigging, and Enhanced Remote Control, which allows users control over multiple translation and transform dials simultaneously.
Notable upgrades include Non-linear Animation, giving users the ability to create clips of animation that can be reused and combined on multiple tracks of animation; Dynamic Hair that allows artists to style, cut, brush, and drape the hair; Displacement Modeling where the user can paint detail on a model using free-form brush tools; and Symmetrical Modeling that allows content creators to edit both sides of a symmetrical object at the same time using a variety of editing tools.
Pricing and Availability
Carrara 6 is scheduled to be released for sale on the DAZ 3D website in August 2007 with a special introductory discount being offered to DAZ 3D customers. The standard edition of Carrara 6 will have a MSRP of $249, and Carrara 6 Pro will have a MSRP of $549.
