E-on Offers Discount for Mac OS X Users

Vue d'Esprit 3D software available for $149 By Dave Nagel
E-on Software has announced a new promotion for its Vue d'Esprit 3D landscape and scenery software. The discount allows users of Mac OS X to purchase the software for $149, a $50 discount off the regular price. The company says the deal is in response to Corel dropping Mac OS X support for Bryce, a competitor to Vue d'Esprit.

Vue d'Esprit is a 3D scenery creation, animation and rendering package. The latest release offers improvements to volumetrics, new objects, lens effects and a host of output options. Vue D'Esprit 4 includes a volumetric atmosphere system designed to provide complex interactions between air and light. It also offers volumetric clouds, materials and lights. Other features include:

  • Lens flares;
  • Stellar and atmospheric objects;
  • A terrain editor with real-time preview;
  • Random rock generator;
  • Symmetrical terrains;
  • Solid Growth 2, e-on's tree and plant creation and rendering technology;
  • Output to MPEG-1, MPEG-2, QuickTime, Real, QTVR, PICT and TIFF.

It also offers import support for LightWave 6 and later, export for Cinema 4D and direct static Poser scene imports for Mac OS X.

The full version of Vue 4 includes two CDs containing 30 SolidGrowth 2 trees and plants, 100 atmospheres, 100 clouds, 300 materials, 250 fully textured objects and 50 sample scenes. It normally sells for $199. Under the terms of the special promotion, it's available for $149 through June 23 for Mac OS X users. (The software is also available for Windows at the regular price.)
