Guildford, United Kingdom, February 10, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Creative Dimension Software Ltd is pleased to announce the latest v3.5 release of 3DSOM Pro, the professional software tool for creating and presenting 3D models from photographs. This technology allows real objects to be digitized using photography to create true 3d models that can be published for interactive 360x360 viewing online.
There are several new export capabilities that have been added to this release. One of these is a simple mechanism to publish 3D models using webGL for hardware accelerated rendering within the browser and without special plugins.
WebGL is a new browser technology for directly accessing 3D graphics hardware from web pages. This technology is gaining support and is already included in many modern desktop browsers and on some mobile phones.
The webGL export function is easy to use and powerful allowing simple models to be published suitable for viewing in a mobile browser such as Firefox under Android as well as highly detailed models suitable for standard desktop viewing.
New material channels
Also available in this release is the ability to create additional texture maps for specular and transparency channels. Once created these maps can be edited using 3DSOM's texture editing tools via any 2D image editor.
This allows users to visualize a whole new range of objects such as drinks bottles etc - you can specify which parts of the object are opaque, semi-transparent or completely clear as well as how glossy or matte they appear.
