dvGarage Announces the OSX Upgrade for the 3D Toolkit

Tutorials and bonus for EI Universe now native for OSX (December 21, 2001)
dvGarage announces the development of the 3D Toolkit for OSX. The 3D Toolkit is a visual training system that ships with a full version of the Electric Image's Universe software developed specifically for the 3D Toolkit, which was used to create 3D effects in "Star Wars: Episode 1" and many other blockbuster productions. It is designed to teach 3D principles and techniques to visual artists at all levels and in all industries.

"I recently received a copy of your 3D toolkit, which I have been devouring -- it's brilliant," writes Sholto Crow of Mission Control EFX, "the tutorials have been massively useful, as I haven't been using Universe for long, and what I did know came from feeling around in the dark, basically. I also didn't have a clue about modeling, which I am now getting to grips with."

"As a long time user of Electric Image Universe, I think this is a tremendous opportunity to get into 3D," declares John Knoll, co-creator of Photoshop and Visual Effects Supervisor, "It's a real democratization of the tools which is always good for the market."

The OSX upgrade will ship with Electric Image's Universe 3D Toolkit software for OSX. The disc will also include project files for the 3D Toolkit tutorials and selected dvGarage website tutorials, all converted to the OSX 3D Toolkit format.

The 3D Toolkit is the first in a series of visual training products dvGarage will develop in its commitment to foster a global community of visual media developers where no one is left out.

Buyers of the 3D Toolkit after November 1, 2001, will receive, for the cost of shipping and handling, the OSX upgrade free. Other customers of the 3D Toolkit can upgrade to the OSX version for $49 and the cost of shipping. Additional information about the 3D Toolkit can be found at
