  • Archipelis 3D

    With Archipelis 3D, creating 3D content is accessible for everyone. No need to be an expert to create organic shapes and textured 3D models. This innovative concept is extremely easy to use: just draw an outline from a background image to make a 3D textured model! Or you can use a blank view and just draw the shapes you want from scratch. It's the most intuitive approach to sketch out the shapes and enhance them with textures and photos.

  • Sensei Format

    Sensei Format & the Blender Crash Course were created with each other in mind (blendersensei.com/blender-crash-course). The idea being, make Blender easier to learn and use. Sensei Format removes tedious and difficult to remember steps from hundreds of common 3D modeling and animation tasks. Learning a 3D program is similar to learning a programming language. Once learned, transferring your skills is fairly simple. Sensei Format helps you learn core CG disciplines faster.

  • MARI

    MARI is a creative texture-painting tool that can handle extreme projects. MARI was developed at Weta Digital to handle the massively complex, highly detailed look development work demanded of the texture department by projects such as District 9, The Lovely Bones, and Avatar. MARI has a creative toolset which puts many stand-alone 2D paint systems to shame, allowing artists to concentrate on painting. The user interface is responsive and fluid.
