TGS has released version 6 of its Amapi 3D modelling, animation and rendering package. This latest version of the app will include the company’s 3Space technology, which allows 3D content to placed within Web sites using the proprietary 3Space browser plug-in.
3Space allows users of Amapi 3D v6 to associate dynamic and interactive behaviours onto objects. It can also create the elements to place the interactive object within a Web page in HTML, XML and the ZAP Web 3D format. This allows full 3D scenes to be created with many objects that can interact with each other, for example bouncing off each other.
Amapi 3D v6 also includes new modelling tools: including elevation maps, tension controls, peturbation tools, projections tools and more smoothing tools. It also adds import and export formats such as OBJ, OpenInventor and STL. An integrated rendering module with a redesigned interface has been added for faster raytracing.
Amapi 3D v6 costs $399.
