Free U3D content exporter
DAZ 3D has released a free U3D content exporter included as part of DAZ|Studio 1.5, allowing Photoshop users of all experience levels to quickly combine 3D models into existing projects. Users can manipulate 3D models inside Photoshop CS3 Extended, and can work with virtual objects to create images of any genre ranging from medieval to contemporary. The free U3D exporter is designed to ease the process of completing scrapbooks with 3D art and backgrounds; designing books with vivid cover images; and creating compelling storyboards. The company also links to a free video tutorial that walks users through the steps of loading the DAZ 3D Sea Dragon model into Photoshop CS3 Extended, and provides its DAZ 3D weekly free product archive with a slew of 3D models and accessories available for free download. DAZ|Studio 1.5 requires mac OS X 10.3 or later.
