Flight Studio 1.5 Takes Off at Turbo Squid

Royalty-free 3D products provider Turbo Squid has announced the release of Flight Studio 1.5, a Discreet Certified 3ds max Plug-in from Bluerock Technologies. The release is designed to better facilitate the importing, editing and exporting of OpenFlight scene graphs and databases from within Autodesk 3ds max for professionals in such fields as game development, military simulation, geographic information systems and training and development.

Flight Studio allows the user to load, edit and export OpenFlight scene graphs and databases from within Autodesk’s 3ds max, all while retaining scene graph structure and attributes. Features of the new max plug-in include scene graph and attribute editing and LOD management. In addition, OpenFlight artists can continue to use the full range of content creation tools available in 3ds max, including polygonal and multi-resolution mesh modeling, unwrap UV modifier, texture baking, real-world lighting and vertex paint modifier.

Flight Studio 1.5 carries a suggested retail price of $1,495. Existing Flight Studio users will be upgraded to 1.5 at no cost.
