Carrara Studio Bundled with Poser

Developers to collaborate on technology integration By Dave Nagel
Curious Labs and Eovia say they've entered into a strategic partnership focusing on both technology and marketing. As an immediate result of the partnership, the two companies have begun bundling Curious Labs' Poser 5 with Eovia's Carrara Studio 2.

Poser 5 is Curious Labs' latest-generation character animation package. Carrara Studio is a 3D modeling suite. Both applications originated from the same company and went their separate ways when MetaCreations sold off its software assets earlier this decade.

Poser 5 is available at the moment only for Windows, and so is the current Poser/Carrara Studio bundle. The Macintosh version of Poser, which is supposedly in development for Mac OS X, is due out next month. Eovia tells us that when the Mac version of Poser is released, the bundle will be extended to both platforms. (Carrara Studio 2 is already available for Mac OS X.)

In addition to this bundle, Eovia and Curious Labs say that this bundle is just the first offering from the companies' partnership. They also plan to follow up this offering with technical collaboration "leading to tighter integration between Carrara Studio and Poser."

The Poser 5/Carrara Studio 2 bundle is available now for $529. Sidegrades from either Poser 5 or Carrara Studio are available for $199. The WIndows version is available now, with a Macintosh version expected to follow next month. For more information, visit or
