The First Name in
From the new Instancing Lab and totally redesigned bridge to DAZ Studio, to the improved skies and clouds, updated HDRI and advanced lighting, Bryce 7 will breathe new life into both your future and existing Bryce scenes. Whether you are a professional designer, or a recent 3D graphics enthusiast, Bryce 7 provides you with the tools to literally create a world of your own.
What's New in Bryce
Enjoy true instancing with items that auto-follow the terrain. Create copies of individual objects, or entire sets so as to create huge forests and rock gardens quickly and without the typical memory usage and overhead. Change the distribution and randomness by controlling the scale, density, and proportion of your selected objects.
Improved Light Lab
New distant, spotlight, parallel, cluster, dome and 3D fill lights are available along with settings for specularity and diffuse intensity. Also includes optimized true ambience, lens flare, and cast shadow intensity settings.
Create animated particles from sphere objects with control over size, gravity, and max particles.
Sky Lab Improvements
Use the sky as a light source, add a specular map to your IBL, control shadow softness, background DOF, transparency controls, tone-map, and the ability to create and export your own HDR Images. Also includes new controls over cloud settings.
DAZ Studio Bridge
Create seamless productions of environments populated with human figures, animals and other characters imported from DAZ Studio.
Now you can import and export FBX and COLLADA date files, including the import of Google SketchUp models or Spore creatures.
