(August 21, 2007 - Businesswire - Mountain View, CA) Caligari Corporation, the producer of award-winning 3D modeling, rendering and animation software, today announced a new Ambassador program for all users of Caligari trueSpace.
The trueSpace Ambassador program is designed to reward trueSpace users that enthusiastically help other users, willingly share their creative work and positively promote Caligari within the broader 3D community.
"Being chosen as a Gold trueSpace Ambassador is a great honor for me," said Griff Wason whose work using trueSpace can be seen at http://www.griffwason.com/
. "I'm amazed at the vision and talent of Caligari's creative development team. They have combined the future of collaborative design with cutting-edge intuitive and immersive creative tools into a 3D application that, at last, allows creative users true symbiosis with the tools necessary for limitless creativity. In today's sound-bite world where technology is just a commodity, it may sound unusual, but I can honestly say that I love trueSpace. I love using it, creating with it, experimenting with it and challenging its capabilities. I use it all the time, it is one of the tools I use it to make a living."
The trueSpace Ambassador program consists of two levels. The Silver trueSpace Ambassador receives 10 percent off any Caligari product (including special offer pricing). This savings can be passed on to friends, too! Silver trueSpace Ambassadors also receive a special logo that can be posted on web sites or used as a forum avatar. Becoming a Silver Ambassador is simple, users just need to sign up at http://www.caligari.com/AmbassadorReg.asp
to start receiving their savings.
"Caligari's new Ambassador program is an excellent addition to its already brimming pot of features that makes being a 'trueSpacer' a very rewarding experience," said Steve Britton of Mad Mouse Design whose work using trueSpace can be seen at http://www.madmousedesign.co.uk/
. "I am extremely flattered to be invited to be one of the first batch of Gold Ambassadors. Promoting trueSpace has always been a pleasure for me but it is still very gratifying to be awarded this title for my efforts."
The Gold trueSpace Ambassador level is achieved only by invitation from Caligari. A Gold Ambassador is recognized as one who helps others by answering their questions on various forums; shares models, textures, shaders or scripts that they've created; and promotes trueSpace by submitting their outstanding work to community 3D galleries. Gold Ambassadors, like the Silver level, also receive a 10 percent discount and special logo. In addition, Gold Ambassadors are eligible for subcontract work from Caligari as well as outside companies looking for competent artists.

"The dedication and enthusiasm that our users show us is amazing," said Caligari marketing manager Tom Grimes. "Despite how busy most of them are, they take valuable time out of their day to guide others in all areas of 3D development. To show our appreciation, we are pleased to be able to offer all Ambassadors a discount and give the Gold level members an opportunity to be paid for their experience and efforts."
