DAZ 3D Unveils Carrara 7.0

Draper, Utah - DAZ 3D has released Carrara 7.0, the latest version of its 3D modeling, animation, and rendering solution.
Carrara 7.0 offers new, easy-to-use features, such as 3D paint, multipass 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 provides an array of tools and resources for 3D content creation, as well as export capabilities via COLLADA Export that enable accessibility to various applications, such as DAZ Studio and Adobe Photoshop.
Carrara 7.0 offers many robust features to improve overall workflow and production speed, such as:
- Multi-pass Rendering: Enables an artist to make changes to their renders without having to re-render the entire scene.
- 3D Paint: Carrara 7.0's 3D Paint tool 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 specularity.
- Assembly Room Vertex Modeling: Helping to improve Carrara 7's workflow, 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 Macintosh and Windows formats via the DAZ 3D Web site, and is regularly priced at $249. Carrara 7 Pro is available for $549.
