Digital Carvers Guild has released a new Carrara plugin called: DCG Importer: “The DCG Importer lets you render simulations and animations from your favorite 3D tools that export sequenced OBJs.”
A description from Eric Winemiller at Digital Carvers Guild: “It will import sequenced OBJ versions of anything the built in Wavefront OBJ importer will do. By only keeping one frame in memory at a time, it lets Carrara handle large or long running animations.”
One use case is exporting a fluid dynamic simulation from Blender (free) or RealFlow (expensive) into Carrara, the Youtube below shows the result.
Carrara has the ability to load in and use most types of 3d model files on the market. It has a rather genius browser window to help us to catalog and find it all. But how do I set it up? And what kind of content can I buy and expect to work easily within Carrara’s interface? I bought it, installed it, but how do I find it?
