Corel announced on Wednesday the sale of its landscaping and animation software
to DAZ Productions. Bryce’s new owner has renamed the application DAZ|Bryce and plans to build integration with its animation lip-sync solution DAZ|Mimic and with its art tool DAZ|Studio into the next release of the software. DAZ did not target a date for that release, simply stating that it will arrive “in the coming months,” but the company confirmed its commitment to a Mac version. A feedback forum is now available on the DAZ Web site; users are encouraged to post wish lists for the next Bryce release there. The company also announced that, effective immediately, it assumes all sales and customer support responsibility for Bryce.
DAZ says on its Web site that Bryce is available for order from its online store right now, but as MacCentral posted this article, clicking “Order Now” produced a “No such item” error. Bryce requires a G3 or better processor, Mac OS X (DAZ does not list a minimum version number), 128MB RAM and 100MB free hard drive space.
