Webinar X3D Authoring Tools

Webinar X3D  Authoring Tools - Thursday 6 August, 2020 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM EDT

See archives below.

X3D authoring tools provide integrated, powerful toolset for animation, environments, motion graphics, and virtual reality. These integrated authoring tools makes it easy to create 3D scenes.  Learn about these open source tools and their ecosystem. How they interoperate with exisiting authoring tool like ( belender, Maya, 3D Max, Rhino, Meshlab and more). Titania and White Dune allow you to view and interactively edit scenes and offers powerful tools for live execution of the scenes. 

Explore Extensible 3D (X3D) our open source 3D technology for the Web. X3D, the next generation VRML.

X3D Authoring Presenters

Dr. Nicholas F. Polys

Director of Visual Computing, Virginia Tech Advanced Research Computing - President, Web3D Consortium

Nicholas F. Polys is Director of Visual Computing with Virginia Tech Research Computing Group and Affiliate Research Professor in the Department of Computer Science. He has developed interactive 3D graphic content and systems for over 15 years. His research interests lie at the center of graphics and Human Computer Interaction: the intersection of visualization, virtual environments, and perception. After his undergraduate research in Cognitive Science at Vassar College (1996), he jumped into the networked information space of the WWW developing audio, visual, and 3D assets and software. His doctoral work at Virginia Tech (2006) examined perceptual cues and layout behaviors for Information-Rich Virtual Environments for desktop to immersive platforms.

He is a member of ACM, IEEE Computer Society, and the Web3D Consortium. He is a co-author of the international standard (ISO) Extensible 3D (X3D), elected Director and President of the Web3D Consortium, and Chair of the Web3D Medical Working Group.
