A new software program developed by US-based MetaCreations enables users to easily create photo-realistic 3D models from 2D photos or scanned images, says its Australian distributor, Scholastic New Media.
According to the company, Canoma 1.0 ($999 RRP) uses an "image-assisted modelling" approach, simplifying and speeding-up what was once a time-consuming practice to create 3D models.
Canoma allows users to edit images in perspective and create interactive photo-realistic 3D images for use on the Web such as product catalogues and real estate Web sites.
Canoma works seamlessly with MetaCreations' other products such as Kai's Power Tools 5 and 3D modelling and animation programs such as Poser 3 and Ray Dream Studio 5.
