KPT Bryce for Power Macintosh

KPT Bryce is the award-winning 3D application that designs and renders stunning photorealistic and supernatural landscapes and terrains. It is also being used to generate unique, complex textures and materials. The Power Macintosh version of KPT Bryce offers a 400-to-600 percent performance improvement over the 68K-based Macintosh version, especially in the time it takes to render images.

Named after Bryce Canyon in Utah, known for its spectacular scenery, KPT Bryce allows anyone, even a child, to be a visual artist, letting them design and render breathtaking skies, surreal landscapes and never-before-seen-worlds-supernatural media. Users can choose from dozens of present skies, grounds and terrains, all of which can be combined in thousands of variations. Users can also create their own landscapes from the ground up.

Experienced 3D professionals will appreciate the powerful controls that are included, such as surface contour definition, bumpiness, translucency, reflectivity, color, humidity, cloud attributes, alpha channels, texture generation and more.

KPT Bryce features easy point-and-click commands and an incredible user interface that includes the Sky & Fog Palette, which governs Bryce's virtual environment; the Create Palette, which contains all the objects needed to create grounds, seas and mountains; an Edit Palette, where users select and edit all the objects created; and the Render Palette, which has all the controls specific to rendering, such as setting the size and resolutions for the final image.

KPT Bryce is a ground-breaking program dedicated to generating world-class 3D landscapes. Such quality requires the kind of powerful full-featured raytracing technology that has until now been cumbersome and expensive for Macintosh users. KPT Bryce's new proprietary raytracing algorithms have been highly optimized specifically for this task, providing users with unparalleled raytracing power and speed.

Top DL is the official CD-ROM image from HSC. It contains the preinstalled application and over 600 megabytes of scenes and example images.

That's a great big article in response to a crazy person talking nonsense!

BTW, that´s NIBIRU approaching on the screenshot.

I don't know what "NIBIRU" means, yet it is an excellent screenshot.

[Edit] Ah, "Planet X" Thanks for the link MCP. You're right, a long (interesting) article Wink

The 2nd screenshot link appears to be broken, its not working for me.

I rendered some images that took a long time and I thought it was because of the emulation.

wow - yet another superb app for these old Mac. This seems to be a "fat" file, I'm running it on a PPC OS9.1 Maybe the process of rendering an image will be the limiting factor, a 800x600 image takes about 12 mins on my machine, but what an image!
