San Francisco, Calif. - Darwin Dimensions, maker of Web tools that turn Internet consumers into 3D artists, launched Evolver Proto deliver superior-quality 3D character models to 3D professionals. During this week's Game Developer Conference, Evolver Pro is extending a special offer of 50 percent off the purchase price of a single model to first-time site visitors using the code GDC50.
At EvolverPro.com, users are guided through the creation of a unique and high-quality 3D character. The user can start with either a photograph or by choosing a reference model from a library of more than 1000 characters, then modify and manipulate facial features, body type and size, texture (skin tone), makeup, hair style and color, and clothing and accessories. Models can be exported in a variety of formats, and/or with specular maps, normal maps, texture maps, blendshapes, and full body and facial rigs for detailed body and face animation.
Evolver's proprietary technology automatically produces a custom animation rig for the face and body of each character born at Evolver Pro. This ensures that it is both ready to animate with motion capture or and keyframe animation in any off-the-shelf 3D animation package including Autodesk Maya, Softimage, and 3ds Max, and also produces the highest visual quality, artifact-free final animation.
In addition to purchasing models for animation, users can select from a range of "pre-tuned" formats including readymade characters for Animeeple, Mixamo, Worldviz, Torque by Garage Games, Gamebryo from Emergent, FaceFX from OC3 Entertainment, Blender Vastpark, Relaxtend and more on the way.
