DAZ Prods. Acquires Corel’s Bryce

DAZ Prods. has acquired Bryce, the award-winning 3D landscaping and animation package from Corel, maker of CorelDRAW Graphics Suite, WordPerfect Office and Corel Painter. DAZ says it is committed to delivering new releases of Bryce for both Macintosh and Windows.

Dan Farr, president of DAZ Prods., comments, “The acquisition of Bryce fits perfectly into our vision of offering a complete 3D creation suite for artists and animators. We look forward to a bright future for Bryce in conjunction with our existing software packages and vast library of 3D content.”

DAZ plans to develop a pathway to bring existing DAZ 3D content seamlessly into Bryce. Further integration with DAZ|Studio is also scheduled for development. “The future of Bryce will be molded directly by actively engaged community members," says DAZ VP and art director Christopher Creek. "DAZ remains committed to continuously searching for and providing what is most desired by our customers."
