This application reinvents character modeling to make it natural, productive and to let you sign your own creations. The days of spending hours manipulating polygons is over. QUIDAM is a complex application which reinvents character modeling to make it natural, productive and to let you sign your own creations.
QUIDAM does not provide single models but dynamic bases and each one includes a multitude of body parts, props, clothes, textures... to create millions of characters!

1. Combine
Compose thousands of unique characters with the numerous body parts and props available. Add the props you like or import your own objects directly to place them on the skeleton.

2. Sculpt
QUIDAM's Sculpture Studio offers a complete set of original, powerful and natural sculpting tools to let you knead and put the finishing touches to your character. With QUIDAM, it's you who creates your characters, not the software!

3. Paint
The drawing tools let you paint in real time onto your models.
Discover a natural way to apply colors, textures, transparency, bump or normal maps as if you were painting on a canvas.
4. Pose
With QUIDAM's direct manipulation system, you can give an attitude to your characters in a few clicks.
Use the available preset poses or create yours. You can save and store them.

5. Render
Your character is ready.
In a blink, QUIDAM produces a high quality image for printing and editing in retouching software.
6. Export
Thanks to additional plug-ins, export directly your ready-to-be-animated creation (equipped with its textures, UV, bones and skinning) into Maya, 3DS Max, LightWave, Cinema 4D, Carrara... Multi resolution, your characters can be exported at the resolution of your choice!

Limitations:
* 30 days trial
