Portland, Ore. – iMove™ Inc, the provider of Multiview Interactive VideoTM, today announced an exclusive worldwide distribution relationship with Digimation, Inc.®. Digimation will distribute the newly-released iMove Panoramic Media for 3D Sudio MAX® and 3D Studio VIZ®. iMove Panoramic Media enables users to create 3D panoramic renderings that let users move forward and backward, look anywhere, zoom in and out, and trigger interactive hotspots which link the user to websites. The software can render animated walkthroughs of 3D designs in a fraction of the time required for other methods.
“Our partnership with Digimation will greatly expand the availability of the iMove software to a worldwide market,” said Gerry Hunt, iMove Vice President of Marketing. “We regard Digimation as a premier developer and distributor of plug-in technology for 3D software as well as stand-alone graphic oriented programs for the PC.”
iMove Panoramic Media for 3D Studio includes a feature to turn 3D models into panoramic objects that can be rotated on both the vertical and horizontal axes at once or rotated on one axis while animating an element of the object. This feature enables engineers to create virtual working models of their drawings, architects to conduct shadow studies and designers to show all angles of prototypes.
“iMove has established itself as a brand leader for panoramic rendering, and we believe the iMove Panoramic Media for 3D Studio will be a very popular addition to the Digimation product set,” said David Avgikos, CEO of Digimation.
iMove Panoramic Media for 3D Studio is currently used worldwide by Web developers, architects, engineers, multimedia developers, and other design professionals wanting to bring depth and interactivity to their work. It currently retails for $499 U.S. and is available through Digimation and its worldwide reseller network. Digimation will also provide technical support for the product.
