Overview

Create Your Own Virtual Worlds

For over a decade, artists of all mediums - print, video, multimedia or the web - have known Bryce, the affordable 3D software for achieving breathtakingly realistic imagery.

The latest incarnation, Bryce 6, will give those artists along with the new generation of creators the ability to work faster and create more realistic environments than ever before. Whether you are a professional designer, or a 3D graphics enthusiast, Bryce 6 provides you with the tools to literally create a world of your own.

Bring Life to Your 3D Environments

Make your scenes more realistic by combining imported animations with your Bryce 6 scenes to create seamless productions of environments populated with human figures, animals and other characters. With improved support of animations created in DAZ|Studio software, included free with Bryce 6, you can place your characters directly into your Bryce 6 scenes and have them walk and talk right before your very eyes. Choose at what point you want the imported animations to begin, with the freedom to go back to DAZ|Studio to make any necessary adjustments to make them perfect. Then simply re-import those animations back into your Bryce 6 scene.

Work While You Create

Bryce 6 is the ideal 3D software addition to your image editing toolbox. Now it is easier than ever to add artwork created in Bryce in conjunction with common image editing programs to merge photos and 3D artwork for an unlimited degree of creativity. For inspiration, take a look at the artwork hosted in the Bryce Gallery on the DAZ 3D website. There you'll find works created using nothing but Bryce, as well as many images where Bryce 3D elements such as terrains, skies, water, trees, models and more were combined with non-3D elements using photographic elements and layers in other applications to achieve the final artwork. Bryce 6 gives you the freedom to add realistic 3D environments to your existing workflow without the headache often associated with learning new tools.

Features

  • Natural light Top of DAZ 's list of new functionality is HDRI image-based lighting, enabling you to create more naturalistic lighting that closely resembles what the eye sees when it views a scene
  • It can produce great renders, but is perhaps not as important to the target audience - budget users - as it would be in a pricier package
  • The documentation is also very superficial in its description of the purpose, application or benefits of using HDRI imaging, instead pointing you to links on other sites
  • In fact, the entire software manual is frustrating to use. Although it's been significantly extended, with over 1,500 new images having been added since the last version, it's not provided in a searchable document format such as PDF or even a Word file; instead it comes as a series of HTML pages
  • If you don't already know what you're looking for and where it's roughly situated, finding the right information can be very tedious and time-consuming indeed
  • The Terrain Editor has been improved, with better support for ready-made images. You can, for the first time, load your own 16-bit greyscale image to use as an elevation map for the entire scene, or you can load images for use as brushes, although the latter feature would be even more useful with the option to rotate and rescale imported brushes
  • Furthermore, the entire Terrain Editor would be friendlier if it were populated with the pop-up tool-tips that now grace other areas of the program
  • Falling short Their absence seems indicative of the way Bryce 6, in general, has been developed. It has many excellent features, but the way in which they've been implemented sometimes leaves a lot to be desired in terms of the way they'll be used in the real world
  • A classic example is the new Random Replicate tool, which enables you to create a user-specified number of duplicates of the current object. Each clone will be randomly rotated and positioned in space within a radius of your choosing
  • It seems obvious that there may be times when you wish to add a random scale element, or randomise the colour, but neither of these options is available
  • It's a useful feature, but a little thought and a few more hours of programming could have made it a hundred times more powerful
  • As always, Bryce is an incredible program, especially at its price point. The new HDRI options increase the quality of its rendered output, and new features such as DAZ Studio animation import, the Random Replicate tool and the changes to the Terrain Editor extend its functionality
  • Yet many of these features are so much less useful than they might be, simply because of the way they are implemented. In its current state, Bryce 6 is an application that delights and infuriates in equal measure

Everything went smoothly, I would use your services again. (That is not an invitation, however, to flood my mailbox with offers.

I like the fact that I could immediately download and receive my serial number. The download instructions were also very helpful.
