Electric Rain Releases Swift 3D 3.0 for Mac OS X

Free updates available for Mac OS 9 users By Dave Nagel
Electric Rain has released Swift 3D 3.0 for Mac OS X, a 3D Flash utility previously available for Mac OS 9 and Windows. It's available now in full versions or as a free update for those who purchased Swift 3D 3.0 for Mac OS 9.

Swift 3D 3.0 is a standalone application for converting 3D artwork and animations to the Flash (.swf) format, as well as other vector and raster formats. It uses the RAViX III rendering engine for processing 3D scenes for vector formats. It supports transparency, reflection, specularity and multiple shadows. It also includes the EMO Ray Tracer, a second rendering engine with full bitmap texturing for output to raster and vector formats, including Flash. And it can render scenes to layers using Electric Rain's SmartLayer technology. According to the company, the new version for Mac OS X offers improved render speeds and an enhanced workflow.


Electric Rain says the new version is available as a free update for those who purchased Swift 3D 3.0 for Mac OS 9 earlier. The full version sells for $169. Other upgrades are available for $89. For more information, visit http://www.erain.com.
