Piranesi’s unique ‘3D painting’ technology allows you to rapidly add paint and textures without needing to create masks, and the range of nearly 3000 ready-to-use textures, images and cutouts supplied free on the product DVD enable you to apply a wealth of effects to your illustrations, tailoring them to suit a house style or a client’s brand positioning.
If you have SketchUp Pro, you can export views of your model as EPIX files which you can open directly in Piranesi. To celebrate the launch of version 5 for Mac (version 5 for Windows came out several months ago), Informatix Software is offering SketchUp Blog readers a 20% discount off the price of Piranesi for either operating system. All you have to do is use the voucher code SKUP0308 at the Piranesi online store before March 31st, 2008.
Here's a neat YouTube video that demonstrates Piranesi 5 in all its glory:
Update The 20% discount has been extended through the end of March. Please note the new voucher code in the post, above (SKUP0308).
