Konkeptoine has released WoodLab for Electric Image Universe. WoodLab is a shader designed specifically for creating wood effects in Animator. It's available now for Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows.

WoodLab simulates the internal appearance and structure of a tree trunk, creating the effect of an object cut from wood. It includes controls for vein types, root influence and force, knots, grains, moisture, noise, weathering and reactive properties. It also ships with more than 200 preset materials for Animator, including wood varieties from North and South America, Africa, Europe, Asia and Australia. And it includes more than 50 MB of documents.

WoodLab is available for Animator 5.x running on Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows. It's available for an introductory price of $89 through Oct. 1, after which it will sell for $99. For more information, visit
