Mover brings enhanced animation capabilities to Vue d'Esprit By Dave Nagel
E-on Software has announced two new pieces of software for 3D artists and animators. These include Mover 4.0, an animation tool for Vue d'Esprit, and Ozone 2.0, an atmospheric effects plugin for NewTek LightWave. Both are available now for Mac OS X and Windows.

Mover 4 is an animation pack for E-on's Vue d'Esprit, a 3D landscape and scenery suite. Mover 4 allows for fully animated digital characters, enhanced motion effects and network rendering. Features include:

  • New Poser 4 Animation Import;
  • Vibrations effect for automatically adding vibration effects to any object, including imported objects and the camera;
  • Spin effect, which includes the ability to animate the speed and direction at which the object spins around an axis;
  • Twinkle effect for adding variable twinkling to stars in night sky scenes;
  • HyperVue Network Rendering: multiprocessor rendering across a network of computers using Mover 4?s multiprocessor RenderCow rendering servers.

Mover 4 also includes $150 Poser models from Daz. The package supports Mac OS X and Windows and runs $99.

Ozone 2.0 is the latest version of E-on's plugin for NewTek LightWave. Ozone is designed to let users add atmospheric effects to their scenes. Features of version 2.0 include:
