MetaCreations has sold off its two remaining graphics products, Poser and Office Advantage, to German company egi sys.
The sales complete the divestiture of MetaCreations’ graphics software business, which it announced at the end of last year.
egi.sys is the parent company of a Santa Cruz-based company Curious Labs. The company's co-founders used to work at MetaCreations, and were involved in the original development of the 3D-software Poser. Curious Labs intends to hire additional staff from MetaCreations to help in the development of Poser, according to a company statement.
Office Advantage is a Windows plug-in for creating charts and presentations in Microsoft Office.
MetaCreations will provide customer service for both products until April 30, and technical support until May 19. After this, egi.sys will take over.
