Google drops O3D plug-in, in favour of WebGL

Google announced that it has partly scrapped its own browser plug-in project called O3D. Although they will be throwing its full weight behind the 3D Web graphics technology called WebGL, O3D will live on. Google is rebuilding O3D as a library of pre-built software that others can use on top of a WebGL foundation. Read More

Antix Releases Game Development Kit (GDK) with OpenKODE and OpenGL ES support

Antix releases v1.0 of its free GDK to support publishers, developers and retail channels delivering networked, native games that consumers can copy and share across multiple screens irrespective of screen size, input device, OS, CPU and fields of use including mobile phones, TVs and STBs.

CopperLicht WebGL 3D engine 1.1 now supports Character Animation

CopperLicht, a fast JavaScript 3D engine has been released today in version 1.1.0. This release now adds support for character animation: The 3D engine is able to import and play back skeletal animated meshes. CopperLicht uses WebGL and is able to render huge 3d worlds like Quake 3 levels (see the demos) at playable speeds. It comes with a full 3d world editor to edit levels and maps and is free to be used. Via it's world editor, CopperLicht is able to import more than 20 3D file formats (like .3ds, .obj, .x, .lwo, COLLADA etc), so it is very easy to create content using this 3d engine. Read More

Lyncis Pack 3D simulation and visualization application supports COLLADA

Lyncis Pack is a 3D simulation and visualization application that gives you a realistic and real-time presentation of what packaging models will look like at the point of sale. Lyncis Pack supports the COLLADA format as a way to import assets (such as packaging and product models, shelving, displays, etc) for real-time visualization. For other products that support COLLADA, check out the official COLLADA products directory. Read More
