Dassault Systèmes’ 3DVIA Adds Drag and Drop Stereoscopic 3D to Free Development Environment
Concord, Mass. & Velizy-Villacoublay, France – Dassault Systèmes, a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, announced that its free download of the new 3DVIA Studio development environment includes drag and drop stereoscopic 3D, allowing any user of the software to easily create a truly 3D experience in a matter of seconds.
With the addition of this new feature, users can create stereoscopic experiences for stereoscopic monitors, TVs and video projectors working in checkerboard or side-by-side modes, as well as non-stereoscopic screens with simple red-blue glasses.
“Including this feature in the free 3DVIA Studio offer is another example of our commitment to empower anyone to build lifelike 3D games and applications,” said Lynne Wilson, CEO, 3DVIA, Dassault Systèmes. “The stereoscopic 3D feature opens doors not only for developers, but the average consumer. With its drag and drop functionality, users can easily extend their creativity beyond online applications to video media for TVs, projectors, etc. It’s very timely given the rising popularity of 3D movies, as well as the consumer commoditization of 3D TVs.”
To help users navigate the newly added stereoscopic feature, 3DVIA has published documentation, including a short video tutorial explaining how to use it. In under two minutes, the video shows how anyone can give his or her projects extra dimension by adding stereoscopic 3D.
“We have years of experience in building immersive solutions for our virtual reality users” said David Nahon, immersive virtuality domain leader, 3DVIA, Dassault Systèmes. “With 3DVIA Studio, we are giving developers a simple yet effective way to create stereoscopic experiences. We have exposed key parameters so that users can, without opening the code, easily and dynamically adjust the type of stereoscopic display system they wish to display on, as well as the out-of-screen effect so that projects are perceived correctly. What’s most exciting is that this addition is the first in a series of turnkey virtual and augmented reality solutions users can expect to see in the coming months.”
