How To Enter

Participants must write one or more conditioners for the COLLADA Refinery. Example entries are:

  • An importer conditioner (load .3ds, .obj, .x3d, .vrml, cad, terrain )
  • An exporter conditioner (to a game engine, or other formats .3ds, .obj, .x3d)
  • Data processing for content pipeline (processing of geometry, optimization, conversion)
  • Debugging and monitoring tools (statistics, diff tool)
  • Automatic LOD generation - takes a geometry and creates a specified number of LOD geometries with names like (GeometryID)_LOD_1

New version of Adobe Photoshop CS3 Extended includes Khronos Group's COLLADA for 3D support

COLLADA has redefined game development by making simpler and more fun to create 3D content

The Khronos group is pleased to announce that the new Adobe Photoshop CS3 Extended, has selected COLLADA breaks new ground with the addition of 3D support. Users can import 3D content from most major 3D CAD and modeling programs using industry standard formats including COLLADA.

Photoshop is already widely used for many imaging applications including the creation of textures and special effects. The ability to bring in and work with 3D content expands the usefulness of Photoshop for content creation applications including game development, film and video production, and scientific visualization.

Anyone remember the original 1992 Xwing game? When you first started playing the game, you had to do Obstacle courses to learn how to fly the various ships. They all had their strengths and you needed to learn how to navigate using those strengths basically.

GIS 3D Data Support


GIS systems are based on the vast amount of data. And we are talking here about maintaining enormous databases which eventually have to be updated as well. However, still there is a lot of static-data, based on offline sources - CD‚s for instance. We have to bear in mind that when it comes to decisions or visualizations made in GIS, we got to keep that data as fresh as possible in order to make GIS and our work valuable.

FlashLib - Using Flash Library assets in Flex2


Grant Skinner just posted his FlashLib extension for the Flash 9 alpha IDE / Flash CS3 with a great explanation of how it prepares your library for use in Flex2. He calls em' "Shake n' Bake SWF's", I call em' buiscuits of joy! Ok enough with the Southern references.
