MetaCreations Corp. this week started shipping Canoma, its new software which enables Web developers to create photo-realistic 3-D models from 2-D photos or scanned images.
Canoma 3-D models can be used on Web sites, in electronic catalogs, imported into traditional 3-D modeling and animation packages or combined with MetaCreations' MetaStream 3-D streaming technology for a complete solution for developing and distributing 3-D models on the Web.
Canoma provides developers with a way to easily edit images in perspective, or create and manipulate photo-realistic 3-D interactive models. Using a new approach called "image-assisted modeling," the product enables those who may not consider themselves 3-D specialists to create convincing models of goods for sale, real estate walkthroughs and photo-quality property previews that are fully interactive.
Canoma provides new visualization technology for many different creative Web-based applications. The product utilizes an extremely compact MetaStream Internet file format, and supports other industry standard formats as well, enabling the models to be imported into 3-D modeling and animation software.
