S3D Technologies launches the S3D CGI Maya Plug-In.
The S3D CGI Maya Plug-In provides easy creation, management and control of a virtual stereoscopic 3D camera rig within Maya. It is the first stereoscopic professional plug-in for Maya, fast and efficient it removes the guesswork often associated with setting up a stereo camera pair within a CGI environment. Such guess work often leads to many wasted hours, as scenes rendered with incorrectly set stereo camera settings, will create 3D images that are very uncomfortable to view. The S3D CGI Maya Plug-In is completely integrated into the Maya user interface and allows the animator to simply pick the point of convergence, as well as the positive and negative parallax points in the scene and the S3D CGI Maya Plug-In will automatically set the correct inter-axial distance and toe-in, if required. These parameters will be automatically updated over the course of the animation shot.
