Piranesi 4 for Mac OS X
Informatix Software today announced . Version 4 of the "3D painting" software is now shipping, according to the company. With Piranesi, designers can start with simple models and renderings, and quickly fill in details and create hand-drawn effects. Piranesi 4 supports Archvision Rich Photorealistic Content (RPC) on Mac--cutouts that are built as multiple images or 3D models and can be viewed from any angle. Version 4 also includes the ability to use 3D models in 3DS, Sketchup, and DXF formats as well as RPC; and a whole range of user-requested improvements to the painting effects. The company has added over 300 new cutout and texture images to the Piranesi library. A 30-day free trial is available online.
