RealViz Shows ImageModeler 3.5

Commercial release coming in Q4 By Dave Nagel
RealViz says it's chosen the Apple Expo 2002 in Paris this week to showcase its forthcoming ImageModeler 3.5 for Mac OS X. ImageModeler is an application that turns 2D scenes into 3D scenes. For the first time it will be available for the Mac before Windows, and the company is offering a deep discount to Macintosh customers on preorders starting today.

ImageModeler is an application that allows users to convert 2D images into 3D models through a system of points and 3D geometry. A user would take four to six shots of an object, and then match points in each shot to create correlations between the points from various angles. The software automatically determines the type of lens used in the images based on the relationships between the points.

Those who purchase the preorder for the Mac OS X version will receive a preview release of the software in October and a full release when it comes out in mid-December.

From now through Dec. 15, ImageModeler will run $1,000 for the Macintosh version, about $500 off the regular price. A Windows version will be available in the first quarter of 2003 for $1,499. For more information, visit
