Vue 8 Pioneer: Cutting Edge Digital Nature Technologies – Still Free
Despite the addition of revolutionary new technologies for the creation and rendering of natural 3D environments, e-on software also announced that Vue 8 Pioneer, its entry-level product will remain available for free.
Newcomers to 3D and casual artists will find in Vue 8 Pioneer all the landscape-creation tools they need to easily create and render amazing images of their own 3D worlds. Vue 8 Pioneer is the perfect introduction to the world of 3D.
The product can be extended with 12 optional modules that add specific functionality to the base application. Thanks to this modular approach, users can progressively upgrade all the way from Pioneer up to Complete. Vue 8 Esprit, Studio and Complete represent pre-bundled, cost-effective alternatives to the modular approach of Pioneer.
Pioneer is published by Cornucopia3D, a division of e-on software.
The Vue Theme-Packs include all the software tools and ready-made content for the creation and animation of themed 3D images and video clips.
There are 3 different Vue Theme-Packs: Vue Science Fiction, Vue Fairy Tale and Vue Fantasy.
Each Theme-Pack includes over $100 worth of exclusive content – 3D virtual sets, models (plants, pre-animated meshes, etc.), atmosphere presets and more.
The Vue Theme-Packs are compatible with all 12 Vue expansion modules.
Priced at $49.95, these products are available directly through e-on software's online store, and will progressively be available through e-on software’s international reseller channels.
Vue users can also purchase the content packs from www.cornucopia3d.com.
Customers who purchased a Vue 7 Theme-Pack will receive their upgrade to Vue 8 at no charge.
Introducing Vue 8 Frontier:
Vue 8 Frontier provides scenic nature and Poser character rendering for 3D enthusiasts to easily compose character-filled images and video clips.
Based on the Vue 8 core application, Vue 8 Frontier will import any static Poser model, including Poser 8 characters. If they like, users may also render their Poser characters using the native shading tree of Poser, so that their characters look exactly like in Poser - with the added beauty of Vue's radiosity and environments!
Vue 8 Frontier includes a free version of SkinVue 8 that adds the ability to enhance human skin realism. A VuePython powered utility, SkinVue 8 quickly and easily transforms Poser characters into vivid, realistic models.
Vue 8 Frontier retains the modular architecture of the 3D Enthusiasts and 3D Artists products, to progressively upgrade all the way up to Complete.
