The Ultimate Toolkit for Game Developers
Platforms: Windows XP, Vista (32 and 64 bit), 7 (32 and 64 bit)
If you're a game developer, you know how much of a hassle it can be switching between multiple applications in order to perform modeling, animation, and lighting tasks. Not only does this process open the door to memory usage issues, it can also get pretty expensive! Well, today's software promotion gives Windows users all of these capabilities, plus a whole lot more, in one package, at a discount! It's called deepMesh!
deepMesh is a 3D modeling package that gives you a full set of game development tools, from modeling, to texturing, animation, and lighting, all in one spot. With deepMesh you'll be able to create both static and animated assets, no matter what your skill level as a developer. Plus, with import/export support for 20 model formats, plus deepMesh's own format, you won't need to jump through hoops to import your creations into your game or application!
Here's what you get with deepMesh - primitive-based modeling, complete with over 28 primitive types, a vertex editor and mesh builder, direct painting with up to 4 texture layers per material, boolean operators, UV mapping, plus support for keyframe animation and skinning! Oh, and I almost forgot to mention the Direct-Illumination Light Mapper, which lets you add dramatic light and shadows effortlessly. And if you're just getting into things, you'll appreciate the lovely illustrated user manual that contains step-by-step tutorials spanning over 50 topics. Learn things, you will!
