Dassault Systemes today announced the launch of Cosmic Blobs 1.1, a 3D modeling program that allows children to create computer art and animation movies. Available for the first time on Macintosh, Cosmic Blobs now includes a movie file capture feature, improved content graphics, and an expanded user interface. “Cosmic Blobs acts like modeling clay on the computer, enabling users to design and animate creations in the style of today’s coolest computer-generated cartoons and movies.” Cosmic Blobs requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later, and is priced at US$44.99. It will be available for the first time in retail at Apple Stores beginning in July 2005.
