"The user community has been clamouring for a Macintosh version of Vue d'Esprit for years. The advanced architecture of Apple's Mac OS X 10.0 operating system provides both stability and ease of use that 3D graphics designers love. We are very excited to finally be bringing Vue d'Esprit to the Macintosh, a platform we have long admired for its ease of use," said Nicholas Phelps, president of e-on software.
Vue d'Esprit 4 for Macintosh will include hundreds of new features over the
previous, Windows only, Vue d'Esprit 3.1. These include the following:
A whole new volumetric atmosphere system that closely captures the complex interactions of air and light; volumetric clouds, materials and lights
Lens flares, stellar and Atmospheric objects - planets (moons and other planets of the solar system), stars, rainbows and ice rings.
A new Terrain Editor with real-time 3D preview, random rock generator, symmetrical terrains
SolidGrowth 2, an advance on e-on software's amazingly realistic tree and plant creation and rendering technology that creates unique natural objects within a click, all within an extremely small memory footprint
Direct import of static Curious Lab's Poser Scenes for inclusion of complex animal and human models.
"The Poser team at Curious Labs is excited that Vue 4 will allow immediate inclusion of Poser scenes. We are sure the Poser community will be excited about how well Poser and Vue work together to create complex, naturalistic scenes with humans, animals, vegetation and atmospheric phenomena," said Steve Cooper, President of Curious Labs.
