Creator

In today’s market, content creators are challenged with ever-increasing expectations for high-performance models.  Even as schedules shrink, the demand for visual realism in 3D content is on the rise.

Presagis Creator is the original software for creating optimized 3D models for real-time simulation.  Designed specifically for simulation applications, Creator allows content developers to work natively with OpenFlight data to output highly optimized models with advanced surface materials and multiple levels-of-detail. And, because of its streamlined modeling process, Creator helps content developers meet expectations on schedule.

 

OpenFlight® is the de facto standard real-time 3D database file format and is the native output file format of Creator, offering comprehensive interactive control. The customizable extension capabilities of the OpenFlight format provide a common ground for its diverse users and a mechanism to save and re-use objects or environments for future projects.

Creator

Key Features


Industry Standard

Designed around OpenFlight, the industry-standard content format tool for Simulation.

Extensive Toolkit

The Creator toolkit includes highly specialized wizards that help simplify the complex processes of modeling real-world objects and locations.

Optimized Content Generation

Enables the generation of uniquely optimized objects, characters, and areas-of-interest for high performance simulation with any simulation engine.

Realistic Visual Effects

Full support for today’s highly realistic visual effects, including lighting, occlusion, bump, specular, and reflection maps.

Integration With Terrain Generator

Features tight integration with Presagis Terra Vista for efficient end-to-end database creation.

What’s New

Surface Effects Processing

The Bake Normals tool allows content creators to transfer and preserve fine geometry details from high-resolution models to simpler, more efficient, geometry.

To complement dynamic lighting and dramatically improve realism, the Bake Ambient Occlusion tool allows for the automatic creation of ambient shadow textures that darken cracks and corners.

Automated Damage-State Generation

The 2D and 3D Fracture Generator tools subdivide geometry into pieces that resemble natural breaks for a wide range of materials.

The Physics Simulator saves hours of modeling time by allowing physical forces to be used to distribute fractured pieces or parts of a model in a natural way.

The Setup CDB Damage States tool automates the once complex process of adding damage-states to CDBs.

Extended Materials

The extended materials in Creator allow content creators to employ fully correlated materials and effects maps between MetaFlight and CDB for higher quality results.
