It may come as a surprise to most of you to read that Creator is not the only 3D modeling tool on the market.
There are, of course, a great many 3D modeling tools out there, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. The Creator team fully understands that many of you Creator modelers have to use the right tool for the right job, at the right time.
We get it, really we do!
Big world of free (but not painless) 3D models
Sometimes that means creating or editing 3D models outside Creator (gasp!) or perhaps purchasing or downloading models that are not in the OpenFlight format (whaaa?). As if digging through the myriad of varying quality 3D models out there was not difficult enough (more on preparing and picking quality models in a later post), one of the added challenges is to find the right format that helps preserve UV's, textures, materials and perhaps hierarchy structure.
Creator is now updated with a new choice for an exchange format, and supporting many of those features is now only a few mouse clicks away
Just in case you are reading this and thinking, “man I really do need to set aside some time to find this 3D model for my project”, why not take a look at the Presagis 3D Models Library and see if we already have some you can use either as a starting point or as is? Best part: these models are already in FLT format, and many are already materialized.
Ok. Back to our blog article already in progress...
