Eovia Carrara 5 and TransPoser 2 Now Support Poser 6New releases offer superior import capabilities for popular 3D figure design software (December 20, 2005)
Eovia Corporation, developer and publisher of leading 3D software tools, today announced that Eovia Carrara 5 ¯ the latest release of the powerful, approachable, complete 3D solution ¯ and the TransPoser 2 plug-in for Carrara now provide support for Poser 6, the award-winning 3D human figure software from e frontier. Eovia began shipping Carrara 5 at the beginning of December. Widely accepted in the design community, Poser 6 is one of the flagship products of e frontier (formerly Curious Labs).
?Poser 6 is an important tool for Carrara artists and for the 3D community in general, said Bob Stockwell, Eovia Corp.s Director of Sales and Marketing. ?We are pleased to have been able to work with e frontier to deliver Poser 6 support in our new Carrara 5 release and the updated TransPoser 2. The power of Carrara combined with the flexibility of Poser will be a compelling solution for many 3D animators and artists.
?We are very happy that Carrara 5 and TransPoser 2 work seamlessly with Poser 6, said Hiroshi Sato, President of e frontier. ?This allows almost unlimited opportunities for the CG artist and their creative process.
Eovia Carrara 5 is now able to natively import Poser characters (with bones, morph targets and skinning information), cloth (not dynamic) and props. Poser figures can be imported with Carrara bones and morph targets, allowing artists to animate them directly inside Carrara. Users can also easily import a character and then add clothes, morph targets or another hair prop. Carrara 5 supports the following Poser formats: CR2, CRZ, PP2, PPZ, PZ3, OBZ and PZZ. Animation created in Poser can also be imported into Carrara 5.
Additionally, the updated Eovia TransPoser 2 plug-in is included in the more comprehensive Carrara 5 Pro version. With this update, TransPoser 2 now supports Poser versions 4 through 6, network rendering, dynamic cloth and hair and the update button.
The TransPoser 2 plug-in is priced at US$99 and is available through the Eovia webstore (www.eovia.com/purchase/webstore.asp), with a free updater available for current owners on the Eovia website. Carrara 5 is priced competitively at US$249, with the advanced Carrara 5 Pro available now for US$549.
