The Props line is available now

Premium kit store KitBash3d has celebrated its first anniversary with a new product line, film and free sample kit giveaways.

The company, which creates high-quality assets for artists, has launched a Props line. Featuring four new kits – Streets, Greebles, Highways and Rooftops – the assets are at cheaper price points of $45, $95 and $145.

As with its architecture kits, which include Future Slums, Utopia and Neo Tokyo themes, the Props kits have been designed by industry-leading concept artists and art directors that have been specifically built for production with clean geometry, mid-poly counts, UVed and textured.

All assets are application agnostic and integrate seamlessly into workflows with all off-the-shelf digital content creation tools.

Destiny 2 cinematic director Sava Zivkovic has also created CG brand film titled “Build Your World” to celebrate KitBash3d’s anniversary and explore the history of architecture using only KitBash3d. The film starts in a dark world of the Fairy Tale kit before taking the viewer on a journey through Gothic castles, Victorian sunsets, Neo Tokyo skyscrapers, the slums of Kowloon, embattled warzones and ultimately the quest for life beyond our planet. The film’s score was composed by Iz Svemira.

“Our jaws hit the floor when we saw Sava’s video. This is the first cinematic of it’s kind to use the kits in such detail.” said KitBash3d Co-founder Maxx Burman, an art director and matte painter whose credits include Iron Man 3, Godzilla, and Game of Thrones among others.

“This is a very exciting day for us to launch this latest addition to our product line. After a year of putting out a new World Kit each month, and upgrading all our kits this summer to include textures, we believe our new Props line is exactly the expansion our audience has been asking for.” added KitBash3d Co-founder Banks Boutté.
