Zygote, E Frontier Launch Open Source 3D Human Models
"This is the first such effort in the 3D modeling community. We felt the time was right to offer high-quality 3D human models with open source licensing," said Bryan Brandenburg, CEO of Zygote Media Group." Users will be able to create figures for both personal and commercial use and even create royalty free derivative products. These high-quality models will help engender a cooperative effort to expand access and innovation to 3D models and 3D animation."
This open source 3D project is similar to Linux in that the figures are royalty free and may be incorporated into applications such as 3D games, graphic design, 3D modeling programs and 3D animation and art tools. Sixus 1 Media is the first third party company to join the Open3DProject and contribute a set of 3D Human Models from the Project Human initiative.
