The appeal of many products lies not only in their colour pattern but also in the visual effect of the underlying texture.
It is this texture which produces the dramatic changes in overall appearance which happen when the product is viewed from different angles or under varied lighting.
Despite its important role texture has often taken a backseat in the design process which still largely relies on 2D drawing applications.
t3D-designer puts texture on the map to help you establish a sound direction during the earliest stage of your prototype design.
t3D-designer allows you to instantly evaluate the combination of a fresh 2D colour pattern with a 3D surface texture from your archive. A photorealistic digital impression of your product prototype is presented in an interactive 3D scene on your screen. The 3D scene instantly updates to give you real-time control over lighting, camera and product. The ability to perform an assessment of the design without fabricating a real sample saves valuable time and resources.
Extend the funtionality of the t3D-designer application with t3D-swatch. This module allows you to output attractive combinations of colour pattern and texture in an interactive animation sequence based in Flash. The result is a SmarterSwatch which can be disributed via email, uploaded to your website or even presented in a pdf format catalogue.
