  1. Finally, after 6 weeks of hard work and 4 pre-releases we are excited to present Verge3D 2.9 for Blender! This release is so huge that we even thought of assigning a major version number (making it 3.0), but decided to save it for the future until we support a third 3D editor. Here is the list of the most significant features: Support for Blender 2.8 and the Eevee renderer! New Eevee-based demo – Scooter Customizer! HDR rendering pipeline and radiance HDR textures Post-processing effects – bloom, brightness-contrast, grayscale, DOF and SSAO Many new puzzles including those for changing RGB and Value nodes of materials and the world Better anti-aliasing for reflective materials Dozens of other improvements and bug fixes. Link to the fool article.
  2. We glad to present you state-of-the-art 3D (WebGL) product configurator featuring HDR rendering, realistic materials, code-less approach for creating more than a million possible combinations. It's awailable with the new Verge3D engine release. Link to the realtme Demo.
  3. This interactive application was developed by a group of 3D graphics specialists from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Using Blender and Verge3D, the team led by Brian Kumanchik with support from Soft8Soft developers created an engaging WebGL experience to give you the opportunity to explore all the details of this mission. Enjoy Experience InSight by following this link. Click (or touch) and drag to explore this 3D visualization of the Mars InSight lander. Use the control panel on the left to learn about the lander’s components.
  4. We have released a new version of Verge3D, an artist-friendly WebGL toolkit for Blender and 3ds Max users. In this release: • The Puzzles editor now can have user-defined tabs! • Local transform puzzle to control your animated characters and move other objects in local space. • Verge3D WordPress plugin updated and published in the official WordPress.org catalog. • 300+ ready-to-use code examples updated and published on Github. • Features for Blender users: custom split normals, support for Layer Weight and Transparent BSDF nodes from the Cycles renderer. • Many other improvements and bug fixes the full list of which can be found here: https://www.soft8soft.com/verge3d-2-8-for-blender-3ds-max-…/

    3D Game Showcase?

    Here's an example of simple runner made using Verge3D engine. https://cdn.soft8soft.com/demo/applications/farmers_journey_max/index.html
  6. We are finally releasing Verge3D 2.5 for 3ds Max – it took longer than we thought, yet the amount of new features that we delivered this time was definitely worth waiting for. In this release are reworked physical materials, support for bipeds and character rigs, animation of material parameters, support for more texture settings, anisotropic filtering and various new puzzles to help creating even more engaging interactive scenarios without coding.

  7. We are glad to present a new release of Verge3D – the Blender version comes first this time. We included several significant improvements in this release, such as basic support for Cycles nodes, puzzles for dragging objects with the mouse or gestures and puzzles for limiting object movement, support for anisotropic filtering for textures, Unicode characters and new settings for constraints. We have also created a new application to demo all these features. In this release: • Support for Cycles renders, including physically-based lighting model and the Principled BSDF node! • New Puzzles for positioning, rotating and zooming objects by using the mouse or touch screen. This tool has unlimited possibilities whether it's controlling the a complex equipment or the simple arrangement of the furniture in your apartment. • Support for international and special characters for the names of objects, animations, files and projects. • Textures now look much better due to anisotropic filtering feature. • Ability to control constraints, procedural animations, sounds and many other features in the Puzzles editor. • Various UI/UX improvements in App Manager. Remember the NASA Curiosity application? Now you can create the same app without a line of code using only visual logic blocks, look at our new example. Link to the Industrial Robot demo Link to the Full Article
  8. This app was made using java script, but already in the next release we'll present new logic blocks that allows you to recreate such kind of functionality without coding. The release will be at the end of this week or on the monday of the next and it will come with a demo that shows that it's possible to make all this using only Puzzles (logic blocks) by just only one artist. Thanks for asking!
  9. As Verge3D is getting more and more popular among interactive designers and web developers, quality applications are starting to appear online with regularity. We could not resist to share with you an amazing example of using our toolkit by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Experience Curiosity, the award-winning 3D web app that tells the story of the tireless Mars rover, is now powered by Verge3D! Created by NASA to celebrate the third anniversary of the Curiosity rover landing on Mars, this app was featured by the Khronos consortium on SIGGRAPH 2015 as a breakthrough application powered by then-young WebGL technology. Read the full article HERE!
  10. Thank you for the criticism, I'll fix that in few days.
  11. This is a simple runner (walker exactly:) ) made with Verge3D engine and runs directly in the browser. All was modelled in Blender, even texturing in 90% made in Blender: I just set up shaders and light and baked it to texture. In my pipeline I've also used 3ds Max, Krita, Webflow, Gimp and Audacity. The game was made without coding in two weeks by only one artist. Character and most of the assets based on concepts of Vihn Nguyen . Thanks to Forget the Whale for the soundtrack. Link to the game: DIRECT LINK You can also download all source files with mesh, textures and sounds HERE Some art related to the game can be found here on my ARTSTATION PAGE
  12. It’s been almost a month since the previous release and here we are again with an incredible amount of new functionality and the most advanced demo we ever made with Verge3D. In this version you’ll find: HTML puzzles for mixing web page elements and 3D objects without coding, basic support for V-Ray materials, the highly efficient LZMA compression for glTF assets that saves 6x of average file size, several new Puzzles and support for 3ds Max 2019. Link to the Full Article!
  13. Look at this steampunk puzzle game made using Verge3d engine and Webflow design tool! This audio-visual experience was created to showcase various Verge3D features and to demonstrate its unlimited capabilities in integrating with different DCC tools to allow for a complete code-less workflow. No single line of code was used to develop this web application! Software used: Verge3D, Blender, 3ds Max, Substance Painter, Webflow, GIMP and Inkscape. Link to the Full Application
  14. We are glad to present a maintenance release of the Blender version of Verge3D – yet it contains quite a large set of new functionality. Among the most exciting features are the optimized Facebook export, support for custom fonts, extremely efficient asset compression using the LZMA algorithm, lamp energy animation and almost 3 dozen of new puzzles!

  21. This article was originally published on Habrahabr, a popular Russian website for IT professionals. Its topical theme sparked the interest of thousands of readers who left dozens of comments. We are glad to present the translation of this highly intriguing research on the performance of Unity WebGL and Blend4Web, with reported issues taken into account as well as benchmarks updated for the latest builds of both engines. Article in English: https://www.blend4web.com/en/community/article/280/ Here's some of the test results: So, if you interested in full article just follow the link and read it.
  22. This time we have a serious and broad theme! "Retro cars" contains many different styles, and there are many different ways to try to express them. You can also experiment with steampunk (Don't do war cars though, we are peaceful and all!) Considering that the theme implies complex objects to be modelled, we'll raise the maximum polygon count! Now, it'll be up to 100k tris, however, don't neglect the optimization factor! It will still be an important aspect of the judging. I recommend checking your scene on mobile devices!

  23. Here is a new release of Blend4Web - an open source platform for creating interactive 3D Web content. This month we added support for the GearVR virtual reality headset, created more materials and examples for the material library and documented its use, coded a new performance profiling tool and changed semantics for some shader nodes to work in world space. This release of Blend4Web PRO is also the first version with long-term support (LTS) - a stable production-ready build which will be receiving bug fixes yet keep the API, as well as shader and logic nodes staying untouched for the next 12 months. Today, we are also releasing our small VR-based game called Space Disaster to the public, first shown at the Blend4Web Conference two months ago (video). Link to the Full Article!
  24. It seems though the story of Experience Curiosity, a Blend4Web-powered simulator developed by NASA, is not quite over. This interactive web application featuring the famous Mars rover was nominated for the highly prestigious Webby Award (aka Internet Oscar) granted to the most exemplary online projects of the year. Read more about it in an article!
  25. Dear friends!As we promised, this year we are planing to organize an important event for our ever-growing community - the first Blend4Web Conference in history.
