Design changes, fast.

COLORWAY is an application that fosters creativity and focuses the decision-making process, recognizing that a team of people involved in making design decisions have different goals and expertise. COLORWAY significantly streamlines the iterative design workflow, bringing clarity and efficiency through fast, nondestructive material and lighting changes.

COLORWAY Presenter is a free, approachable application that enables customers or colleagues to review and control 'looks' in real-time. Clients can also review and make modifications within predetermined material and lighting options.

Free COLORWAY kits for MODO and CINEMA 4D enable 3D artists to set up, prepare, render and export scenes for COLORWAY. Using the kits, artists can easily tag lights or materials to be editable in COLORWAY.

‘Looks’ created in COLORWAY can be imported directly back into 3D using the COLORWAY kit.

COLORWAY will really change the way I work as a designer and make my life so much easier for sure. Changing the colors, textures and materials is particularly straightforward, which makes it an invaluable app for use at a wide range of companies—both by 2D artists refining their renders and by 3D departments. Being able to get this kind of rapid feedback from clients helps me to quickly understand exactly what they want, and they love it because they get to experiment like artists themselves!
