Petach-Tikva, Israel and Draper, Utah - September 20, 2011 - 2D/3D CAD software leader OptiTex, and DAZ 3D, a leading developer of professional quality 3D models and software, are pleased to announce a new Dynamic Cloth Engine plug-in for Mac OS and a coinciding upgrade to the OptiTex Windows plug-in, which now enables it to support 64-bit architecture.
Enhancing the existing capabilities of DAZ Studio 4, OptiTex's virtual clothing solution allows anyone to load in a DAZ 3D figure of their choice and apply dynamic clothing sets to them. With this tool, creativity can be brought to life through real-world cloth simulations and a user's ability to quickly alter any clothing's fabric type, garment size, or stylistic variation. Mac users, in particular, have awaited this new release with great anticipation; a testament to the quality-first focus that has been a boon to the 3D community ever since DAZ 3D and OptiTex joined forces four years ago.
"We're very excited that 3D artists and animators of all backgrounds can now take full advantage of their hardware any time they combine OptiTex's dynamic clothing engine with our 3D software tools," says Dan Farr, founder of DAZ 3D.
Since the vast majority of new personal computers come standard with 64-bit Windows 7 or Mac OS X, accessing the power of a 64-bit computing is essential to maximizing the DAZ 3D Studio 4 package. Thanks to the newly upgraded OptiTex software and the proprietary OptiTex physics engine, DAZ 3D software can now fully utilize all 64-bit hardware for better performance on both platforms.
"This new Mac version of the OptiTex dynamic clothing plug-in for DAZ Studio will allow users, both new and old, to have great experiences with clothing sets. OptiTex is fully committed to giving game developers, animators and illustrators an opportunity to enjoy these advanced technologies," says Ran Machtinger, CEO of OptiTex.
Available for free download, DAZ Studio provides an ideal solution for budding 3D artists as well as professional 3D designers, photographers, filmmakers, animators and illustrators. With the addition of this new dynamic clothing plugin, users can work with virtual actors to create images and animations of any genre with a level of realism that was previously unavailable to the general public.
