Shade 7 Coming This Year

English version to include Poser integration By Dave Nagel
Last month we reported that Curious Labs had been acquired by E Frontier, the Tokyo-based developer of a 3D suite called Shade that's currently sold only in Japan. The companies now say that E Frontier will release the first English version of Shade this year and that Curious Labs and E Frontier are working on integrating Poser and Shade for future releases.

E Frontier is the developer of Shade, which is a line of 3D modeling, animation and rendering applications available in several different versions (iShade 6, My Shade 6, Shade 6 Advance, Shade 6 Spirit and Shade 6 Pro). All of these are currently sold only in Japan, but the product line will be extended into other markets, including the United States, with the release of the Shade 7 line. Shade is available for both Macintosh and Windows systems as well. Curious Labs says Shade 7 will be released this year and that Poser and Shade will adopt new features to allow the two applications to integrate with one another. Curious Labs also says it's planning to ship Service Release 4 for Poser this month or next, though no details are currently available for the update. We'll keep you posted.
