Quest3D 5.0 Overview

1.Quest3D is tool for producing real-time 3D Windows applications. Quest3D contains very few high level tools and most work is done very close to the hardware.

The Quest3D can import 3D models in DXF, 3DS, OBJ, DAE and FBX format.
3.Virtual camera
Quest3D includes code for rendering images in high dynamic range. This function also includes automatic exposure combined with bloom and flare effects. You can set up your own camera projections and control them by mouse or keyboard.

4.Natural environment
Quest3D includes code for rendering sky, clouds and landscape. You can alter the height of the landscape and enable an ocean surface.
With HLSL you can program your own shaders. Through DirectX 9 you can write shaders up to shader model level 3. Shaders can be used to define the look of materials and they can be used to create post processors.

A template is included which implements a deferred shading pipeline. The direction of the sun is used to light objects and ambient shadows are approximated in screen space.
7.Fine grained customization
Quest3D is a tool which combines quick development with fine control over everything. It helps if you have programming experience but the actual programming is done using visual graphs.

8.Graphical programming
The graph system is what makes Quest3D unique. By using a graph for programming you can quickly test things and modify your program without waiting for a compiler.
9.Software development kit With the software development kit you can build your own components for Quest3D and build in support for specific hardware for example.

Quest3D Power € 2,999

虛幻4.1引擎發布,新增PS4、Xbox One支持

今日Epic正式發布了虛幻引擎Unreal Engine 4.1版本,在上個月GDC2014大會上發布的虛幻4支持PC、Mac、iOS、Android平台,而虛幻4.1則是在此基礎上增加了PlayStation 4、Xbox One、 Linux和SteamOS平台,幾乎達成橫跨主流平台的目標。
不過既然PS4和Xbox One都可以用上虛幻4.1引擎了,AMD也該有行動了吧。
哦對了,此前Epic也明確表明了Windows Phone平台版本還需要再等一段時間,因為他們目前的主要精力都放在最主流的平台上(譬如PC、Android和iOS)。
