The Swedes from Gothenberg that run Craft Animations have announced the first-ever Linux release of their Craft Director Studio software. Craft Director Studio, which is an advanced real-time 3D animations tool, is now officially supported under Fedora Linux and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. While proprietary, this tool is used for pre-visualization, game development, architectural visualization, and even accident reconstruction and forensics. Licenses for these tools cost up to $1200 USD.

More information on the just-released version of Craft Director Studio for Linux can be found on the Craft Animations web-site. This is great that more 3D/animation software continues to come to Linux. Among the companies that already use this 3D animation software are Mercedes-Benz, NASA, and Pixar.
