Discreet introduces 'Cloth Extension' for 3ds max 7

Discreet has announced that its 3ds max 7 software Subscription members will receive their first value-added extension of this release cycle.
Entitled 'Cloth Extension', this 3D modelling addition delivers a sophisticated cloth simulation system that gives artists the creative tools to build realistic, film-quality clothing for 3D characters in film, television, advertising and games projects. With it, artists can improve their creative freedom by quickly turning modelled geometry into cloth, or easily designing/importing clothing patterns for the design of full garments for their characters.
“Our Subscription customers will be the first to enjoy the benefits of the additional functionality and productivity provided by the Cloth Extension,” said Martin Vann, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Discreet. “Following on the release of 3ds max 7 software less than 45 days ago, the 3ds max Cloth Extension demonstrates Discreet’s ability to provide substantial value to our subscription customers through a rapid expansion of 3ds max 7 software’s capabilities. We have put in place an aggressive investment and development plan for our animation business that includes not only the addition of new functionality, but new initiatives such as Professional Services and the Discreet Digital Academy educational programme, both of which were launched with the release of 3ds max 7 software.”
“Discreet clearly understands the needs of the artists and studios by adding key creative functionality to what is already a superb application,” said Tim Miller, president of Blur Studios.
While the Cloth Extension – which is based on Size8 Software’s ClothFX product – is still available separately from the Discreet Certified 3ds max Plug-in Programme (DCP) through Turbo Squid, the Discreet Online Store, or via Authorised Discreet Resellers, the leading-edge cloth creation technology will now be integrated directly into 3ds max 7 software and will be delivered in January at no additional cost to valid Discreet Subscription customers.
