Swift 3D 6.0 adds modeling, lighting tools for 3D Flash

Create 3D animations, elemtents for use in Flash projects

Electric Rain has released a new version of its Swift 3D software for creating 3D animations and elements for use in Flash projects. Swift 3D version 6.0 adds support for Boolean operations, advanced texturing and bump mapping, PaperVision3D v2.0 export, rendering speed increases, and support for cloning and arrays.

Swift 3D v6.0 gains Boolean Operations with non-destructive union, intersection and subtraction options. PaperVision3D v2.0 export allows realtime 3D object display in Flash.

There are clone and array tools for easy multi-object creation and editing, and bump-map material support and advanced texture mapping for higher 3D realism. The software allows background tracing of images and multi-path support within Extrusion and Lathe Editors.

The update also improves Swift 3D's advanced lighting tools, adding soft shadow rendering and improved viewport camera controls.

Electric Rain says that Swift 3D's rendering performance has been improved significantly with the v6.0 release. The EMO ray tracer renderer powering Swift 3D's image and video export has been drastically improved to the tune of a five-fold increase in rendering speeds, says the company.

Swift 3D v6.0 for Windows and Macintosh is available now for US$249. Upgrades from previous versions start at US$99.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
