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.
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.
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.
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
