Eovia Corporation today announced the bundled plug-ins. ShaderStyle plug-ins allow Carrara users to add more enhancements to their 3D imagery and animation. Eovia ShaderStyle is comprised of Anything Goos, Shader Plus, Toon! Pro and Wireframe Pro plug-ins, all of which were developed by Digital Carvers Guild. 'Anything Goos' is a dirt and ageing shader that works with other common noise shaders to create effects such as chipped paint.
The Shaders Plus component is a collection of new lighting models for Carrara that gives users the ability to bevel models with a shader, use procedural or projection mapped shaders on a bone animated mesh, or compose with images or video using a GI shadow catcher and more. Toon! Pro is a unique cel shader that generates a cartoon look to any project. Wireframe Pro provides high quality wireframe rendering that can be combined with traditional ray tracing or GI rendering. Eovia ShaderStyle requires PowerMac G3 or better with Mac OS X 10.1 or better. Eovia ShaderStyle costs $100 and is available as an Elecrtic Software Download.
