Middleware developer Anark Corporation announced that it has released the newest version of its flagship interactive 3D authoring application, Anark Studio 4.0, including increased speed and memory management, improved workflow, optimized play-back and visual enhancements, and expanded animation support. Specifically, version 4.0 features the ability to import 3DS Max and Maya animations directly into Anark Studio applications via integrated Collada support. With this update, Anark Studio also adds eight new camera modes, integrated rulers and snapping, an improved library palette, and optimized asset refresh. The new version also adds pan/zoom/orbit and fit selected javascript behavior, which allows for simplified development of more extensive and large-scale interactive applications. Developers can simply drag and drop these new behaviors directly onto objects or groups and full 3D navigation is provided. MIP mapping has also been added to the available rendering tools in order to improve asset texture aliasing effects. "We made major enhancements to Anark Studio with the 4.0 release," commented Anark CEO Stephen Collins. "This version was designed to further improve its ease of use and work flow, while improving its overall performance and delivery capabilities. Since the launch of 1.0, Anark Studio has evolved into an increasingly powerful 3D authoring solution that is capable of delivering a diverse array of enterprise-class visual applications. I'm confident that our customers will be very happy with the powerful new features and work-flow enhancements contained in the 4.0 release."
