has announced “Water Damage” and “Aircraft Parts” as part of the “Surface Toolkit” collection of professional Texture Mapping products. While many of dvGarage’s products are aimed at the consumer, these two new products focus on the professional 3D and 2D markets by providing key components to realistic imaging, said the Garage’s Alex Lindsay.
“Water Damage” contains over 100 isolated images of splats, spills and other water-based effects on surfaces. While this occurs everywhere in the real world, it’s rarely seen in computer generated work, Lindsay said. The disk also includes almost 200 reference images of water damage in action.
“Aircraft Parts” consists of nearly 100 isolated images of patches, insignias, and metal work. The disk is designed for anyone working on airplanes, spacecraft or mechanical 3D and 2D images. In addition to texture maps, the collection includes over 900 reference images of Military and Civilian aircraft shot at Pima Air and Space Museum in Tucson, AZ.
Both products are normally US$99 each. However, from now through December 6, dvGarage is offering them for $69 each and $99. The company also
recently updated their 3D Toolkit, as a visual training system that ships with a full version of the Electric Image software.
