quidam 3 coming soon

N-Sided® announces the coming release of QUIDAM 3, the new version of its unmatched 3D character creation program.

Known for its high productivity and originality, QUIDAM is unique in being able to generate thousands of different characters instantly. QUIDAM's Studios (combining, sculpting, posing, painting...) are totally dedicated to personal creation, offering very natural and intuitive methods. One of the most recognized advantage of QUIDAM is its use in professional work environments. QUIDAM is the only character generator able to perfectly export multiresolution models, ready to be animated into all major 3D applications.

Coming with a lot of great new features and top quality 3D and 2D content, QUIDAM 3 is even more Professional and Creative!

In a few words:

- QUIDAM 3 offers an advanced Catalogs system to help saving and reusing all kind of 3D component (characters, morphs, lights, props…).

- The 3D Paint Module has been fully rewritten to be much more accurate and to provide a direct bridge with 2D paint editors (like Photoshop).

- An automatic UV projection system has been added to automatically prepare imported objects so that they can be textured. N-Sided innovates again with an amazing approach that allows you to retouchs UV maps directly onto the 3D model.

- Many other new features dramatically improve QUIDAM: Self shadows in real time, major improvements in edition of skeletons and proportions, an extended QUI format…

- This new version comes with a huge amount of new 2D and 3D : custom characters, textured multiresolution 3D objects, paint and bump brushes, high resolution textures, backgrounds and floor images, skeletons, poses, camera presets, etc.

The Real Time 3D Paint module has been fully rewritten with advanced algorithms to be much faster and more accurate.

UV EDITION
QUIDAM 3 offers its own UV projection system that, in a few clicks, will add UV coordinates to your imported objects so that they can be painted. On top of that, N-Sided innovates again by inventing an advanced system for UV retouches. It lets you modify the placement of the textures directly by clicking and dragging on the 3D model. Work on the final result as if you were deforming the texture!

SELF SHADOWS
The Real Time 3D display of QUIDAM gets better again. It proposes Self Shadows in addition to projected shadows. See in real time the shadow effects of a lock of hair, a hand in front of the mouth, a prop... on your character, for a much more realistic visualization.

AND A LOT MORE...

Indispensable and precious to prepare animation sequences. The proprietary QUI and QDM formats have been extended to support more features… Major improvements has been made in skeletons and proportions edition modules. The creation of characters of any size and proportions, giants, gnomes, cartoon heroes... is now child’s play. A leap forward in creativity!
