Clarisse is a new breed of high-end 2D/3D animation software that reinvents the traditional approaches of creating final images. In a single integrated application, Clarisse provides you with all the means to paint, animate, texture, surface, create layers, render and compose.
Powered by its unique approach, Clarisse, offers many new possibilities to you improving greatly your productivity, such as painting, within the same software, a texture affecting global illumination, displacement or reflection, while you interactively see the result with the full compositing on. You can even work simultaneously on two distinct images when one is being rendered!
You're gonna need to jump over to their web site for the pictures and even more marketing materials. Oh and I should warn you; their site commits one of the internet's cardinal sins, they have loud unstoppable music streaming to your speakers or headphones when you visit. I assume it's supposed to be inspirational or someone's cruel attempt to drive people away. The Alpha starts up soon too, so make sure you sign up if you are interested.
