3D and modeling software developer Daz Productions has announced a beta version of its Daz Studio 3D bridge for Photoshop plug-in, allowing Daz Studio users to apply 3D imagery and artwork created in the program to Photoshop projects.
The new plug-in, compatible with Photoshop 7, CS, CS2 and CS3, allows users to view 3D scenes as Photoshop layers, change objects and figures simultaneously, render directly into Photoshop, import, export and modify image maps and textures onto 3D models in Photoshop, composite 2D and 3D content seamlessly and access Daz's full 3D content library.
Additionally, Daz is offering a free 3D Bridge starter bundle, containing Daz's Aiko 3 base with several textures, hairstyles and poses; a Millennium dragon, cat and dog; a futuristic car, and Daz's "Emotiguy" character.
Daz 3D president Dan Farr says, "With a community of over 500,000 members, DAZ’s goal is to continually bring 3D to the masses, and this product allows artists of all levels to incorporate 3D into their everyday workflow. To support increased demand by Photoshop users for 3D applications, DAZ is proud to offer this exciting new plug-in.”
