E-on To Bring Poser Animation to Vue d'Esprit

Mac OS X support for Poser still scenes in the works By Dave Nagel
E-on software and Curious Labs have teamed up to bring Poser's animation technology to Vue d'Esprit. Vue d'Esprit is a 3D package for creating landscapes and scenery, and Poser is a 3D character animation tool. The new technology will be showcased at the Siggraph 2002 convention in July.

Vue d'Esprit is available for Macintosh and Windows, including Mac OS X. Poser is available for Windows and Mac, but not yet for OS X. However, according to E-on, technology developed by Curious Labs will allow the software to work "seamlessly" with Vue d'Esprit 4 running natively in Mac OS X.

Currently, Vue can import still Poser scenes in the Windows version, but not in te OS X version. An updater will allow for still imports, and the updater is expected soon, according to E-on.

Vue 4 comes with 2 CDs with 30 SolidGrowth 2 trees and plants, more than 100 atmospheres, 100 different types of clouds, 300 materials, 250 fully textured 3D objects and more than 50 example scenes made by Vue artists. A 360-page manual is also included.
