Video: Qt Quick 3D Released

| May 20, 2011 | 8 Replies

Jim sends us a tip that Qt Quick 3D has been released.

What can you do with Qt Quick 3D right now?

  • Create a QML application that features 3D content
  • Load models made in 3D studio max or Blender into your app
  • Add stock shapes such as cylinders and cubes
  • Insert inline shader code into the QML to create neat effects
  • Animate your scene with geometric animations such as rotate, translate and scale
  • Control your scenes with QML states, transitions and animations
  • Write app logic in javascript, and use Qt Quick 2D alongside your 3D content

What is coming in the future:

  • Support for next version of QML (this will likely be the first cab off the rank).
  • Network awareness (at present URL’s must be local file system only)
  • Qt Creator integration for the model loader (to make it easier to position your 3D asset into your Qt Quick 3D scene)
  • More sophisticated animations – skinning and morphing
  • Physics engine integration

Here are the downloads:
