DataPhile 3.1 is a flat-file database designed for people who need
flexibility without the complexities of a rigid, relational system. Using
DataPhile’s intuitive front end, anyone can build and manage a database,
modifying it and generating reports easily. DataPhile also comes with a
number of useful template databases so you can begin using it right out of
the box. DataPhile requires no additional servers; it functions alone or in
a networked environment, on Motorola, Intel, Sun and HP-RISC processors.
Create 3.1 is THE fully supported drawing application for NEXTSTEP. Create
is a multi-page, full color, easy and fun to use graphics program that is
perfect for professional artists and non-artists alike. Create’s tool
palette is highly extensive, including arcs, circles, lines, curves,
splines, ovals, rectangles, squares, text, super text, and freehand tools.
Create’s User PostScript is unique, and perfect for advanced users or users
who would like to learn more about PostScript, view, directly edit and
repeatedly execute the PostScript code associated with any object created
in or imported into the program.
3D Reality is a 3D modeling and rendering front end for Pixar’s Renderman.
3D Reality creates photorealistic three dimensional drawings and includes
many textures, shaders and sample images.
