New Orleans - Turbo Squid has launched the File System, the newest addition to its free Tentacles 3D plug-in.
Tentacles is a flash-based plug-in that integrates the Turbo Squid online library and purchasing process into popular 3D applications, enabling users to browse, compare, and purchase 3D content (including models, textures, mocap data, and much more) without ever leaving the host 3D applications.
With the File System within Tentacles, artists can store, manage, and organize all their work in one secure, central location on the Web, providing instant backup for their critical files. In addition, artists are able to create their own private online workspaces in order to share designs with co-workers, fostering a collaborative environment between team members on a project.
Tentacles is available now for: Autodesk 3ds Max (v7/8/9), Autodesk Maya (v7/8/), Softimage XSI (v4.2/5.1/), Cinema4D (v9.5). Additional versions of Tentacles for more applications are due out later this year.
Tentacles is free and available now at http://www.turbosquid.com/tentacles.
