November 5, 2013: Exocortex is proud to announce the start of the Clara.io (online 3D modeling and rendering software) open beta. Clara.io is the leading web-based professionally oriented 3D content creation platform. Along with opening the doors to unlimited registrations, we are also pleased to announce the Scene Player, improved Format support, a better History tab, complex scene navigation, a plugin SDK and a REST API.
"It is amazing what they have achieved. Essentially it is 3D Studio Max in a browser. Incredible :)"
— Chris Neale, Co-founder at UsableHQ.
We only just announced Clara.io (signup here) back in July and without too much fanfare. We knew there was a need for easy-to-use and collaborative 3D creation and we knew that delivering it via the web and WebGL is the way of the future. What we didn't expect is that over 14,000 people from over 60 countries would register for our closed beta! None of us here at Exocortex has ever seen such a enthusiastic response from the community. Some quick statistics: during the closed beta, each Clara.io user has, on average, created 2.3 scenes, imported 0.2 files and made more than 200 edits. Besides the overwhelming positive response, we have also received hundreds of feature requests. Thank you so much!
