Bryce 5.5 now free
The 3D modeling and rendering application Bryce 5.5 is now available as a free download from DAZ Productions. This release is one step behind the current version of Bryce for Mac OS X, 6.1. The software is known for creating photo-realistic 3D landscapes and featuring a shallow learning curve for beginners. Daz Development says "Start out building or importing a landscape as impressive as the Grand Canyon. Populate it with buildings, people or any other object you create or from the extensive DAZ 3D library. The Light Lab provides you robust control over your sunsets, moonlight nights or high-noon ambiance. Tree Lab allows you to plant your landscape like the gardens of Versailles. You'll have to register your copy of Bryce 5.5 on the publishers web-site to gain access to your free Bryce serial number" Bryce 5.5 is available immediately as a 140MB download and requires Mac OS X 10.2 or later.
