Announcing trueSpace for Virtual Earth 3D Development
As you’ll recall, several months ago we acquired Caligari because of their advanced 3D toolset – trueSpace (among other assets). I’ve always felt sketchy about other 3D freeware, so starting today trueSpace 7.6 is now available for download…..FOR FREE! And, there is a direct connection into Live Search Maps so you can create SUPER high resolution 3D models using trueSpace, then right from the environment upload the model into Live Search Maps as a collection item. Once you’ve created your collection, you can import your collection into your Virtual Earth application and BAM you have your own custom 3D models in your Virtual Earth application. We’ll host the models right in our 3D collections cloud! This is going to be a long post – get some coffee and make it diesel.
