June 17, 2002. Beaverton, OR. e-on software and Santa Cruz, California based Curious Labs have entered into a strategic agreement to enable Curious Lab’s Poser native animation technology in the Vue d’Esprit product line.

e-on software’s flagship product Vue d’Esprit 4 for Windows and Mac OS X is an award-winning rendering and animation tool for ultra-natural 3D scenery. Curious Labs Poser 4 is widely recognized as the easiest way to develop complex 3D human and character animation.

Vue d’Esprit 4 for Windows features the ability to import still Poser scenes. The agreement will allow the Vue product line to host fully animated Poser scenes.

Despite limitations in the Mac OS X - Classic environment, developments made by Curious Labs and e-on software will enable the technology to work seamlessly with Vue d’Esprit 4 for Mac OS X. Still import for Mac OS X will be featured in an updater, available soon.

"The response to direct, still import of Poser scenes in Vue 4 was overwhelming. We believe the Vue user community will be thrilled with seeing their Poser creations move fluidly through a Vue d’Esprit scene" said Nicholas Phelps, president of e-on software.

Vue 4 comes with 2 CDs, bursting with 30 SolidGrowth 2 tree and plants, over 100 atmospheres, 100 different types of clouds, 300 materials, 250 high quality fully textured 3D objects and over 50 example scenes made by Vue master artists. A 360-page manual is also included.
