DAZ Studio 3D
DAZ Productions has released the full edition of its DAZ Studio 3D Bridge for Photoshop plug-in after a beta period earlier this year. Compatible with Photoshop 7, CS, CS2 and CS3, this new plug-in allows DAZ Studio users to automatically apply 3D imagery and artwork to any Photoshop project. The DAZ Studio 3D Bridge for Photoshop allow users to view 3D scenes as Photoshop layers, change objects and figures simultaneously, render directly into Photoshop, import, export and modify image maps and textures onto 3D models in Photoshop, composite 2D and 3D content seamlessly and access DAZ's full library of quality 3D content
The tool offers full-color OpenGL Preview, integration with the 3Delight Render Engine (compliant with Pixar's RenderMan), and Fast-Time Rendering via the user's video card hardware. DAZ 3D is offering a free 30-day evaluation license of the 3D Bridge plug-in for Photoshop prior to purchase. The package is priced at $200.
