Digital ArtForms Debuts at InDex-for-Maya Siggraph

Immersive modeling add-on puts artists in their 3D designs (August 06, 2004)



Digital ArtForms, Inc. announces the debut of InDex-for-Maya, a powerful immersive Maya plug-in that adds expressive freeform modeling and powerful CAD capabilities to Maya's already powerful toolset. Users model shapes with Maya's built-in tools, pick up a pair of SpaceGrips, tracked button controllers, and reach right into their 3D scenes to model and visualize in ways impossible with a mouse and keyboard.

"Designers love to work this way", said Paul Mlyniec, president of Digital ArtForms", but we understand that they have too great a commitment to their current tools and too great an investment in their data pipelines to abandon them. InDex-for-Maya gives them the best of both worlds, providing a truly 3D immersive window into Maya, and because it uses Maya's native export, data integrity is assured."

InDex-for-Maya's high-quality visuals, optional stereo, and support for virtually any display take advantage of the latest graphics features to deliver realistic worlds for design, review, and presentation. Artists and design engineers in all industries will benefit from InDex-for-Maya's natural and concrete style.

InDex-for-Maya is fundamentally different from any other modeling product on the market. To see it in action, contact Digital ArtForms or visit the Polhemus booth (#1116) at Siggraph 2004. For a preview of InDex-for-Maya view the web movie at:
