Electric Rain has today that Swift 3D 4.0 is now shipping for Mac OS X. Swift 3D allows designers to build vector- and raster-based 3D animations and export them to Flash and other formats.

Version 4.0 adds a better modelling environment, the ability to use Bezier curves with control handles to more precisely designate objects' paths, galleries of pre-built models, animations and other items that can be dragged and dropped into the workspace, performance enhancements, according to Electric Rain.
