DAZ 3D, a leading developer of professional quality 3D software and models, announced today the release of a free U3D content exporter included as part of DAZ/Studio 1.5 (also available for free).

With the ability to manipulate the 3D models inside Photoshop CS3 Extended, users can achieve a new dimension of realism with their artwork.



It's so easy to bring in 3D elements from DAZ/Studio to CS3 Extended that literally anyone can do it

    "The new 3D technology in Photoshop is very exciting," said Chris Creek, executive vice-president of DAZ 3D. "The response from everyone at the recent Photoshop World conference in Boston was incredible. Artists love having the ability to easily load and manipulate 3D assets directly within their favorite 2D art tools. I think this technology is a great example of how 3D is becoming more and more accessible to the masses."

Available for free download, DAZ/Studio provides an ideal solution for budding 3D artists as well as professional 3D designers, photographers, filmmakers, animators, and illustrators. With DAZ/Studio, users can work with virtual objects to create images of any genre, ranging from medieval to contemporary. Using the free U3D exporter now available, it's easier than ever to complete scrapbooks with 3D art and backgrounds; design books with vivid cover images; create compelling storyboards, and more.

"It's so easy to bring in 3D elements from DAZ/Studio to CS3 Extended that literally anyone can do it," said Russell Brown, Senior Creative Director at Adobe Systems, Inc. "By combining the extensive catalog of 3D assets at DAZ 3D with the power of Photoshop CS3 Extended, artists will experience amazing creative freedom."
