Blacksmith3D - Suite 2.2 provides you with a host of tools for reshaping and painting your 3D characters and objects. Never before has it been so easy to do. Features that are normally found in expensive, and hard to learn software packages have been brought together in this easy and affordable 3D detailing solution.
Using the analogy of a blacksmith, Blacksmith3D - Suite 2.2 allows you to "heat up" and "deform" objects in a very intuitive way. The hotter portions of the object deform the most and the cooler parts deform the least. In this way, you can easily create smooth and continuous morphs, with little effort.
In addition, Blacksmith3D - Suite 2.2 is a powerful, true 3D paint program. This means that you can simply rotate and position your object, select a paint brush and paint directly on the surface! You can also paint the color, transparency, bump and displacement maps.
