FX3D 3D Real Time 3D Graphics

FX3D offers advanced real time 3D rendering of the most sophisticated complex graphics that are required in today’s demanding live production environments. Moving your graphics to the next dimension from a typical 2D workflow, FX3D allows you to import 3D models such as OBJ or files from Maya, Lightwave , 3DS max, then add animation, texture mapping, lighting to the objects. Combine all this with animations that come preloaded with every system from our extensive library of assets.


FX3D Creation

Integrated into the creation license is a full rendering engine with the ability to create 2D and 3D primitive-based modelling objects. Full keyframe animations with curves are instantly available on the familiar UI timeline for the XYZ axis planes.



FX3D Library

We have made it easy to create. Every systems ships with a huge variety of royalty free library of assets for you to use in your live production environment. Making it easier to design complex shows, our extensive library includes 3D objects to be used in multiple scenarios such as Baseball, Hockey, American football, news graphics right through to election coverage. We have even taken it a step further by providing a large library of textures for you to use quickly and efficiently. Add them to your scene by simply using our drag and drop function.


FX3D Presets

You now don’t need a PHD to create sophisticated graphics. Time is of the essence in a fast paced sports or news environment. In order to cut down on wasted time, we have provided 100’s of real time presets stored in our animation library. Simply drag and drop the animation preset onto your object and the preset move will now be associated with that object in your production. Whether you need a rotating 3D baseball or a moving flag for election coverage graphics, the presets will save you 100’s of hours of time and effort in creating animations on your graphics.
