Isotropix releases Mac edition of Clarisse iFX

One of 20 new ‘mini tutorials’ for Clarisse iFX available on developer Isotropix’s YouTube channel. In addition to the new training, Istoropix has released Mac versions of Clarisse IFX and its free Personal Learning Edition.

Isotropix has released a Mac version of Clarisse iFX. Windows and Linux versions of the next-generation hybrid 2D/3D application shipped last December.

Somewhere between 3D renderer, 2D compositor and animation package, Clarisse iFX is designed to enable artists to develop complex, detail-heavy production scenes while interacting continually with the final image.

Isotropix claims that it as “reinvents the traditional approach of creating final images”. You can read more about what Clarisse iFX is and how it works in our original, longer story.
