It’s easy to use features make 3DPaintBrush attractive for 3D enthusiasts too.

3DPaintBrush allows real-time rendering of 3D models to create impressive digital image outputs for architects, interior decorators, industrial product designers, engineers simulating environments, advertising creative professionals, and multi-media content developers (animators; gaming, multi-media and e-learning content creators). It’s easy-to-use 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 finally save the results in popular image formats, or export as Shockwave Flash and other popular movie formats. For users of Microsoft® Expression Blend™, 3DPaintBrush provides the ability to export in XAML format to create engaging web-connected experiences for Windows.

Integration with Google 3DWarehouse provides easy access to millions of existing 3D models. 3DPaintBrush is based on DirectX 9.0, and it is supported on Windows XP SP2 and Windows Vista.

Salient features of 3DPaintBrush include:

• Import SketchUp, DWG(3D only), 3DS, OBJ, IGES and STEP file formats
• Extensive inbuilt set of textures and HLSL shaders
• Drag and drop lights
• Drag and drop pre-defined animations
• Export scenes to BMP/JPG/PNG/SVG/XAML formats
• Export Animations to Flash and AVI formats
• Insert models into an existing 3D scene
