BunkSpeed HyperShot comes to OS X

updated 03:35 pm EDT, Tue October 23, 2007


Bunkspeed has announced that HyperShot, its 3D rendering application, is now available for Mac OS X. The tool allows paints and materials to be instantly applied to 3D models generated in popular CAD applications, and their reflections viewed under real life lighting conditions. HyperShot can eliminate the need for the physical object or imagery bought from a rendering house. it includes the ability to save and delete materials from the library, create custom tabs to organize materials for fast selection, share and exchange materials. There is also support for light penetrating glass and its resulting reflectance on the ground, as well as light bouncing off illuminated surfaces.

The first release of HyperShot supports native SolidWorks part and assembly files, Rhino, OBJ and IGES and STEP. Other formats will be supported soon.

BunkSpeed representatives said "Photography is traditionally a Mac-dominated field, so it makes sense that HyperShot now supports the operating system of choice for many artists. And while HyperShot works beautifully on even just a basic MacBook, performance really ramps up when used on one of today's multiprocessor Macs."

HyperShot pricing ranges from $200 to $1000 depending on version and a free trial is available.
