Daz 3D has released Carrara 7.0
the latest version of the 3D modeling, animation
and rendering solution. New features include 3D
paint, multi-pass rendering and assembly room
vertex modeling for professionals, students and
hobbyists within multiple industries including
digital photography, illustration, creative
design and videography.

Carrara 7.0’s export capabilities via Collada
Export also allow accessibility to various
applications including DAZ Studio and Photoshop.
Additionally, according to Dan Farr, president
and co-founder of DAZ 3D, the upgrade offers many
new robust features which help to improve overall
workflow and production speed, such as:

° Multi-pass rendering, which enables an artist
to make changes to their renders without having
to re-render the entire scene;

° 3D Paint, which enables textures to be
selected, edited and painted directly onto an
object. The tool also provides a variety of
flexible and time-saving painting modes as well
as real-time display of bump maps and

° Assembly Room Vertex Modeling: the Vertex
Modeling capabilities that were previously only
available in the Modeling room are now available
in the Assembly room. This tool gives more power
to modelers, allowing them to model in context to
the other objects in their scene.

The full version of Carrara 7.0 is available in
both Mac and Windows formats and costs US$249.
Carrara 7 Pro is available for $549.
