FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Microspot release Modeler 3.5 for OS X and a Special Discount for Microspot Interiors Users

12th August 2004 - Maidstone, Kent Microspot Ltd, developers of 2D and 3D graphics and media management applications, have announced the release of Microspot Modeler 3.5 for OS X. Modeler is the new, interactive 3D modeling application that makes it simple to create and render models in real world dimensions and view the results as you are working. Microspot Modeler can be used on it's own or as an ideal companion product for Microspot Interiors enabling you to produce your own furniture items and accessories to add to the items already supplied with Interiors.

As a special offer for existing OS X Interiors registered users, Microspot Modeler will be available for 40% off the regular retail price.

Modeler has six simple and four more complex modeling tools to create basic shapes and a 3D text tool. These shapes can then be changed using modifier tools and further enhanced using color, lighting and textures.

There are eighteen palettes that allow you to change your viewpoint, add and modify textures and colors, change shapes, align objects and set your rendering options. Objects can be saved in the library palette for quick storage and easy access.

Models are rendered using an interactive renderer while they are being created but when complete they may be rendered using antialiasing and shadows with the Microspot Renderer. To see a quick preview of what the final render will look like use the Microspot Preview Renderer. Options of image resolution and shadows can be adjusted for the final render and the time taken will vary with the quality required.

Files can be saved or exported as image files in a variety of file formats including bmp, jpg, psd, tiff and more. Modeler also provides a helpful tutorial that has step-by-step instructions on how to create some basic furniture items.

With unique features, ease of use and an affordable price, Microspot Modeler is the ideal tool for anyone wanting to create realistic 3D models.

Modeler is available for £79.00 / 115.00 $129.00 excluding VAT/tax. However, if you are a registered user of Interiors for OS X, Modeler can be purchased for a limited time offer price of £47.40 / 69.00 / $77.40 excluding VAT/tax.
