Informatix Software International Ltd. announced Thursday that it is now shipping Piranesi, its “3D painting” software designed to work with 3D rendering software.
Piranesi lets designers who have already created simple 3D models and renderings to fill in the details, producing more artistic, hand drawn effects. The software allows you to paint in textures and scenery to 3D models using automatic perspective and masking. Included effects enable you to tweak images for a hand-rendered feel. It also works with 2D plans or elevation images to create panoramas.
More details and links to local distributors in individual countries are available from the Web site.
In related news, Informatix indicated that a plug-in for Cinema 4D will soon be available, developed to work with Mac OS X and Windows. The plug-in will enable users of Maxon’s 3D software to easily exchange files with Piranesi.
