Verge3D 2.13 for 3ds Max Released
We are glad to announce Verge3D 2.13, the tool for creating interactive animations, product configurators, engaging presentations of any kind, online stores, explainers, e-learning content, portfolios and browser games.
We have reworked the implementation of shadows in Verge3D – now they look much better and also closer to 3ds Max viewport.
A puzzle for enabling screen-space reflection or refraction is now available for creating computationally inexpensive yet quite realistic dynamic reflection and refraction effects.
App Manager Settings and Application Templates
The App Manager now offers a settings page, accessible through the gear icon on the top. The settings page also allows you to add your own application templates based on which you can create new applications.
Each application now has a dedicated page for better convenience while managing large projects. The application page can be opened by clicking on the application name in the App Manager. The application page contains the list of files and offers a search box for filtering them off. There is also a button for opening the application folder.
And the last but not least thing – now the main page of the App Manager opens much faster thanks to optimized directory lookups.
Now, the HTML event puzzle, as well as other event and time puzzles which work asynchronously, can be inserted to other puzzles' slots.
The puzzle get object direction now produces correct results for empty/dummy objects and for lamps.
Some properties for handling HTML5 audio and video elements were added to the set/get attr puzzles to: loop, muted, duration, ended, paused and volume. Also we added the ended event in the HTML event puzzle.
There is a new puzzle called system date/time which you can use for adding clocks, calendars, organizers etc features to your apps.
We optimized export time, file size and memory consumption thanks to not exporting unused mesh attributes (such as tangents) from 3ds Max.
We removed the Facebook GLB export option as this feature is no longer offered by Facebook.
Verge3D WordPress plugin now uploads applications asynchronously which speeds up the upload process and also fixed the maximum upload size issue.
