Discreet ships plasma – the 3D internet modelling tool

Discreet have announced the availability of plasma – their professional 3D animation software for creating compelling 3D content for web interface, graphics, and interactive 3D.
With an expected one million sites utilising 3D content and more than half a billion 3D-enabled browsers by 2007, Discreet places professional and proven 3D tools into the hands of Macromedia Flash and Macromedia Director users as well as web graphic designers to develop compelling, advanced web UI or navigation elements.
"3D is no longer just a design choice – it has become an integral feature of the website experience. Web 3D is a rapidly expanding market and we will continue to push innovation to bring the latest technology to new markets," said Phillip Miller, Vice President of Product Management, Discreet.
Based on Discreet's award-winning 3D technologies, plasma software was created for 3D on the web and first-time 3D enthusiasts, artists and designers working with vector art to benefit from a professional 3D toolset.
With its connectivity with Macromedia Flash MX and Macromedia Director 8.5 Shockwave Studio, plasma allows web designers and artists to fully tap into their creative mind, making the creation of 2D and 3D web elements an easier process than ever before.
Coupling Discreet's leading 3D content creation tools with Macromedia Flash and Director, plasma creates a simplified working environment resulting in high-quality output. plasma software allows web animators, who traditionally have created 3D images in 2D applications, to now work directly in a 3D space to efficiently create complex high-quality visuals.
plasma elevates the industry bar by leveraging the integration of Discreet's 3D and Macromedia's authoring tools with superior workflow, file sharing and product cross-compatibilities.
"The connectivity between plasma and Macromedia Flash and Director adds tremendous value to designers who strive to create the most compelling online experiences that build on the ubiquity of our Macromedia Flash and Shockwave players," said Beth Davis, Senior Vice President, Macromedia.
"For Macromedia Flash and Director users, plasma offers an easy path to bring 3D content to the web including Macromedia Flash web navigation elements and Shockwave-based interactive real-time 3D entertainment, educational simulations, and merchandising applications."
