With over 20 years of history and over 200,000 users worldwide, with every release, Shade refines its ease of use and expands its ability to deliver stunning graphics and animation. The latest release of Shade includes support for the latest technologies, such as 64 bit operations, network and multi-core rendering, while maintaining and expanding a workflow design that makes it accessible to artists from any design background.
Shade pioneered 3D modeling when it introduced bezier based curved surface 3D modeling, just like Adobe Illustrator did for 2D design. Use Shade curved surfaces in any version of Shade to create realistic, naturally curved objects like characters, or accurate curved objects for architectural or product visualization.
