Released, the Latest Version of the quick3D Universal 3D File
Format Viewer and Converter.
|Costa Mesa, June 1, 2001 - Today marks the next release
of the 3D file format software and technology, quick3D 3.0.
Continuing with a tradition of efficient and extremely fast
software, this version introduces advanced features currently
unavailable in the 3D software market. In addition to the long
awaited 3D file format conversion and command-line interface
features, version 3.0 provides an intuitive interface for
processing file data including scale, texture maps, surface
properties, and other details. The real-time rendering engine has
also been improved for an even faster frame rate, higher display
quality, and ease of use.
|The ability to freely convert between the various
major and minor 3D file formats with extremely high accuracy is
quick3D 3.0's most anticipated new feature. Twenty of the most
important file formats in today's market are now supported for
import and export. While most 3D converters on the market often
obscure and alter important data during a conversion, quick3D 3.0
creates output that represents the original file as accurately as
is possible within the constraints of the destination file format.
Low-level control over a file's data and properties are provided
through menu commands, or can be automated using the command-line
interface. Included are tools for changing a file's scale, vertex
normals, texture maps, and surface properties, among others.
|This version also introduces a command-line based
user interface, which allows users to bypass the regular graphical
interface. This is ideal for users working in a command-line
operating environment, as well as for scripting 3D conversions and
related tasks in an automated system.
|Product support has been improved with the addition
of an auto-update system. Now users can be confident that they will
always be using the latest and greatest version of the software.
quick3D developers have also been known to add full support for
additional file formats based on a single user's request. quick3D's
design and development has always been user driven.
|In addition to the release of the new software
version, improved forms of quick3D's base file formats have been
released to the public. In doing so, users of quick3D are
guaranteed access to a generalized 3D format, regardless of the mix
of formats used for authoring and modeling. A specification of this
format can be found at the quick3D web site, enabling developers to
use the file formats in their own programs.
|There are two versions of quick3D available, the
free quick3D 3.0 Viewer and the $189.00 full version of quick3D
3.0. These two products are exactly the same, except that quick3D
3.0 Viewer does not have export features and does not have a
command-line interface. Download and order information can be found
at the official quick3D web site: www.quick3D.com. Alternatively, you can use this contact form to submit any inquiries.
