15 Nov, 2007

Free, flash-based plug-in integrates company's 3D content library and purchasing process into various 3D applications, now including Maya v8.5 and XSI v6.

Turbo Squid announced that its 3D application plug-in Tentacles is now available for Autodesk Maya v8.5 and SOFTIMAGE|XSI v6.

Tentacles is a flash-based plug-in that integrates the entire Turbo Squid online library and purchasing process into a variety of 3D applications, enabling users to browse, compare, and purchase 3D content (including models, textures, and mocap data). Artists can store, manage, and organize work in one central online location, as well as create private online workspaces to share designs with coworkers. The plug-in allows users to search for models based on price range, category, file format, date of publication, or user rating.

"This release confirms once again Turbo Squid's commitment with the 3D community," said Beau Perschall, Turbo Squid's vice-president of business development. "It is another step towards our vision for Tentacles and the company in general -- to provide a valuable service to anyone in the 3D community."

Tentacles is free and available immediately for the following 3D applications: Autodesk 3ds Max (v7/8/9, 2008), Autodesk Maya (v7/8/8.5), SOFTIMAGE|XSI (v4.2/5.1/6), and MAXON CINEMA 4D (v9.5).
