Caligari released trueSpace5.1, a new version of its 3D modeling program featuring new support for Macromedia Shockwave3D and other web output capabilities. trueSpace5.1 supports hybrid radiosity rendering, a full complement of NURBS-based modeling tools and advanced surfacing features. It also offers both linear key-framed animation and non-linear physics-based animation with properties such as wind, gravity, and collision detection. In addition to the web capabilities, trueSpace5.1 offers enhanced modeling tools, interface integration, compatibility with standard design formats, and an updated SDK for third-party plug in developers. The company also lowered the price for the stand-alone version of trueSpace, and launched a new "proTeam" program -- an array of online tools, training programs, libraries, and support services available on an annual subscription basis. Caligari's new Shockwave3D Exporter plug-in streamlines conversion of trueSpace5.1 objects and scenes to Macromedia Shockwave3D and Director 8.5 formats, including all trueSpace geometry, materials, lights, views and animation. trueSpace can be used alone to create Shockwave 3D content, or as a 3D authoring complement to Macromedia Director. trueSpace5.1 also generates HTML files directly for export to Viewpoint format, providing a one-step solution for creating Viewpoint-based web sites. trueSpace5.1 is available immediately in two configurations: the stand-alone trueSpace5.1 for $299, and the complete trueSpace5.1 proTeam package for $795.
