Powerful, Inexpensive 3-D Modeling

SAN FRANCISCO (07/27/2000) - If you're looking for an affordable 3-D modeler to create, render, and animate 3-D objects and scenes, your search has ended.

Amapi 3D 5.15 boasts a feature set to rival those of more expensive programs, such as the US$1,499 form-Z. Among this version's new features are dynamic geometry; surface-smoothing, filleting, and deformation tools; and new (and faster) display modes.

As in earlier versions, you can work in either the standard interface, with its floating tool palette, or in the often inscrutable icon-based Workshop Interface. For more sophisticated animations, you can export your work to another 3-D application in any of 24 formats.

PROS:Extensive 3-D modeling features; excellent documentation.

CONS:Nonintuitive interface.

List Price: $399

COMPANY:877/770-2530, Template Graphics Software Advice:Amapi 3D 5.15 is not for users who aren't willing to read the 468-page manual before trying it. If you invest the time, however, Amapi will reward you with dazzling 3-D models.
