announced that their latest plug-in,
TransPoser, is now available. TransPoser allows you to take animated characters created with
Curious Labs Inc.’s
Poser 4 or Poser 5 and dynamically import them into Eovia Carrara Studio 3. It’s part of a strategic partnership between Eovia and Curious that was announced in May 2003.
TransPoser uses the Poser engine inside Carrara Studio for seamless integration of morph targets animation, skeleton animation, hair (Poser 4 style only), and dynamic clothing. Characters can be imported complete with textures as well as props, and you can add the physics, caustics, particles, and other effects found in Carrara Studio.
The plug-in also maintains a link between Carrara Studio and Poser; if you update a character in Poser, the Carrara Studio version will change accordingly. You can import everything from simple characters to complex animated scenes and still have that link.
TransPoser is available now for US$129. Eovia is offering free ground shipping within the continental United States until April 15.
System requirements call for a PowerPC G3 450MHz or faster processor, Mac OS X v.10.1 or higher, 256MB RAM, 20MB hard drive space, a 24-bit color display, and a CD-ROM drive. A 3D graphics accelerator card is recommended.
