Free Software: Bryce 3D Landscaping and Animation

For those of you interested in graphical art software or just interested in expanding your creative horizons, you may want to check out the free offer from DAZ Productions. They are offering free downloads of Bryce 5 for a limited time.

I don't have much experience in this area, but the graphics I've seen created by this software package are pretty impressive. I downloaded a copy of Bryce 5 for my iBook and it looks cool so far. I plan on spending some time in the near future playing with it. Hopefully, I'll be able to put together a nice header graphic for this page.

Bryce is (was) a great program -- most of the graphics on my site were created in Bryce, and I faithfully upgraded (legally) through all the iterations of the program.

But -- Mac users should be aware that the version of Bryce offered for free doesn't run under Tiger (10.4).

Actually, the graphics on your site were one of the reasons I jumped at the chance to download the software for free. It looks like there might be a bit of a learning curve to it, though.

I did notice that this version wasn't compatible with Tiger, but I'm still using Panther. I'm cheap, or you could say I'm waiting for Leopard...

Unfortunately for Bryce use, I'm using Tiger. I need to find another program to do landscapes.

You're right, the learning curve was rather steep since the interface is... ummm, 'unique.' But it made sense once I figured it out. That's another reason why I'm sad that Bryce died; now I'll need to learn another interface if I get a new 3D program. It makes me leary of getting one, too -- what if =that= program dies as well? There is a commercial product out there (Vue something or other?), but I'd need to play with it before I bought it.
