You can’t turn around these days without hearing something about 3-D, whether it’s a new high-def, 3-D TV just hitting the market or yet another movie touting the experience of immersion in a life-like 3-D setting. Dassault, which has staked a claim in the emerging 3-D landscape with its 3DVIA subsidiary, has just announced a free version of its 3DVIA Studio development environment that will allow anyone to create a true 3-D experience for any of these new sources.
The new 3DVIA Studio development environment includes drag and drop stereoscopic 3D, a feature that lets users create stereoscopic experiences for stereoscopic monitors, TVs and video projectors working in checkerboard or side-by-side modes, as well as non-stereoscopic screens with simple red-blue glasses. It’s all part of 3DVIA’s commitment to empower anyone to build lifelike 3-D games and applications, according to Lynne Wilson, CEO of 3DVIA.
To help users navigate the newly-added stereoscopic feature, 3DVIA has published documentation, including a short video tutorial explaining how to use it. Officials also say this addition to the 3DVIA line is the first in a series of turnkey virtual and augmented reality solutions use can expect in the coming months.
