Expression Tools Shade Professional R4/E (ETShade Pro R4/E) is the English language version of a high-end 3D graphics application.

"With a fifteen year history behind it, Shade offers an outstanding and intuitive user interface, leveraging Bezier curve modeling and high speed/high quality rendering. In Japan, Shade has been the leading tool for professional graphics and 3D designers, industrial design and architecture. Shade is the preferred tool in the Japanese automobile industry. Its installed base numbers over 200,000 seats." (from the news release of ExpressionTools Inc.)

"The ETShade-GDL Converter Plug-in became available as a free download for registered users of ETShade Pro R4/E from the ETShade User Support Center on June 26, 2001. Those who do not yet own the ETShade program can test its performance (and compatibility with ArchiCAD) by downloading the new ETShade Pro R4/E Demo, which incorporates the ETShade-GDL Converter. Using the ETShade demo version, they can go through the creation of 3D shapes and figures, and by exporting them to ArchiCAD, they can utilize their 3D models in architectural designs. The Demo includes tutorials and some sample 3D shapes." (from a news release of ExpressionTools Inc.)
