Luxology offers rapid prototyping, DAZ has new Elite human models and NVISION News


Luxology offers Rapid Prototyping Tutorials with modo 302

In Brief: Luxology this week announced the immediate availability of“MP3 Player: Rapid Visualization and Prototyping”, a new video album that demonstrates how modo 302 can be used to complement and enhance the product design process. This training video series focuses on product design and rapid prototyping using modo 302’s subdivision surfaces tools. For more information see this web page.


DAZ 3D Elite

DAZ has released the most realistic human models available in the new DAZ 3D’s Victoria 4 Elite. Utilizing what it calls “unprecedented technology” the new series of add-on morphs and textures for the fourth generation of Millennium Figure, Victoria, create lip creases, individual eyelashes and visible pores making Victoria look more realistic than ever.

“DAZ 3D has always delivered the best 3D content, but we realize that one of the most challenging and time consuming tasks 3D artists face is creating and obtaining believable texture maps and body morphs – and that’s where Victoria 4 Elite comes in,” said DAZ 3D president, Dan Farr.

“We have taken this challenge head-on, investing in high-end professional solutions to create a state-of-the-art Human Data Acquisition Center (H.D.A.C) which provides the most accurate 3D human forms and textures only available through the DAZ 3D Elite series.”


HDAC in Victoria 4 Elite allows users to experience professional-quality features such as:

  • Elite Skin Textures – All skin texture photo-references use proprietary lighting to ensure even lighting with minimal shadowing for the most consistent and reliable reference data.
  • Elite Body Shapes – Utilizing several different scanners, the Elite line of Body Shapes offers the most complete set of scan data for new body and joint shapes.
  • Elite Life Poses – By resourcing scan data of live model static poses in combination with motion capture data, Life Poses offers natural pose sets, preserving body mass and weight and its effect on joint positioning.

The DAZ 3D Victoria 4 Elite bundle is priced at 74.96.USD. For more information visit the the DAZ 3D website.
