3DPaintBrush visualization software from Geometric is designed to create near photo-realistic images, animations and videos from existing computer-based 3D models. The software is suitable for design professionals who need to create images and animations, and its easy-to-use features are said to also attract 3D enthusiasts.
The software allows real-time rendering of 3D models to create digital image outputs for architects, interior decorators, industrial product designers, engineers simulating environments, advertising creative professionals and multimedia content developers. Features include the ability to import and combine 3D models from multiple sources; manipulate material properties; adjust light settings; add backgrounds and environments; create animations; and save the results in image formats or export as Shockwave Flash and other movie formats. For users of Microsoft Expression Blend, the visualization software provides the ability to export in XAML format to create Web-connected experiences for Windows. Integration with Google 3DWarehouse provides access to existing 3D models. The software is based on DirectX 9.0, and it is supported on Windows XP SP2 and Windows Vista.
Other features include a built-in set of textures and HLSL shaders, drag-and-drop, lights and drag-and-drop pre-defined animations. The software also has the ability to export scenes to BMP/JPG/PNG/SVG/XAML formats; export Animations to Flash and AVI formats; insert models into an existing 3D scene; import image files as textures; and insert background images or 3D Skyboxes for composing realistic scenes.
