Hot from the Carrara Cafe! News that DAZ Carrara 8.5 is to be released at the end of summer 2013, with Carrara 9 set to follow perhaps Christmas 2013 or in the first quarter of 2014.
Carrara 8.5 will include…
– Support for up to Windows 8 and Mac OSX 10.8
– DSON support
– Metadata support
– New animation tools (keyframe tool improvements, smoothing, keying every frame, etc.)
– Graph editor improvements
– Improvements to viewport avatars (Lights – spotlight, sun, moon, etc. Cameras – conical, isometric, etc.)
– Improved bullet simulation for soft bodies
Update: ok, they were perhaps a little ambitious on the timeline for the version 9 date, which has now been and gone. 🙂
Carrara 8 is DAZ Studio's official 'big sister' software.
Carrara loads all DAZ and Poser characters and scenes,
and supports LuxRender for top-quality realistic rendering.
