New HD Flash 11 3D Viewer for Photosculpt 3D Models

Good news to all Photosculpt users: Flash developper Josef Chutka has updated his Open source 3D viewer. I can't wait to use it on my web site front page once Flash 11 will become mainstream!

As previously stated in this blog, Flash 11 is now out since a few months. This new upgrade has hardware-enabled 3D capabilities. The improvement in speed is impressive!

To view this page ensure that Adobe Flash Player version 11.0.0 or greater is installed.

What do you think?
You too can use his open source viewer to display you models at home or on your web site. As of today there is no user interface to setup your model nor tutorial ("please just take a look at .xml config file and try to play with values, I wish I had time for a tutorial but sadly I have no"). All you need to do is download your favorite pack here (they are still the older Flash 10 packs but I'll edit this post later when he'll do a link to the new packs) and do some basic text editing. Don't hesitate to contact him if you have any questions?

New Texture Gallery on FaceBook

Hi!

I've opened last week a new texture gallery on the Facebook page of Photosculpt, see it here:

http://www.facebook.com/photosculpt

That's 160 image files ready for immediate download!

What we say:

 Free 3D textures created with Photosculpt Textures 2 Software.
You can use them for any Computer Graphics CG project, or create your own with the 30-day demo of Photosculpt textures.

Each subject was shot twice as it's the best way to produce that crazy depth detail.
The invisible seamless tiling is an automatic feature from Photosculpt Textures 2.

Each 3D texture come with 5 maps and a preview :

- ambient occlusion map ( fake shadows in recessed areas )
- diffuse map ( color image )
- displacement map ( coding for depth, black is backwards, white is forward )
- normal map ( color code that defines the orientation vector of the surface )
- specular map ( used to remove shines in specific areas )

map texture size 512x512

More to come ! Come back soon!

Note: If you like Photosculpt and you're want to receive regular updates about this great indie software. It would be very cool if you press the button "I like it" as it helps your software with natural referencing. We appreciate your support!
