Kuesa 3D for designers

create and animate in Blender, 3d Max or Maya – export to glTF format
Designers use the professional 3D design tool they know best to create the 3D scenes. Tools such as 3ds Max® and Blender have all the features needed to create stunning animations in a very efficient way. The Kuesa 3D digital content creation plugins integrate into the 3D design tool to add new features:
  • Material support: sets of materials supported by Kuesa 3D Studio during export
  • Feature enablers: properties or items that can be leveraged later by the developers (like layers)
  • glTF™ exporter: export the scene in glTF™ format
Once the scene is exported, the designer can use Kuesa 3D Studio tools like the asset pipeline editor to preview and sanity check assets.

New for designers in Kuesa 1.2

  • Iro Materials: materials to simulate reflections, paints with clear coats or simple transparent surfaces
  • Support for Blender 2.8:
    • extensions to allow exporting Iro Materials to glTF 2.0 files.
    • updated Kuesa Blender add-on to show a real time WYSIWYG preview of the Iro Materials in Blender.
    • Improved animation: animate material, lights or camera properties in Blender, export the scene as a glTF file (with the extensions) and load it with Kuesa Runtime.
Kuesa 3D Studio is based on top of PBR (Physically Based Rendering) materials which approximate real world physics in real-time with a photo-realistic result. The materials used in the 3D design tool and the engine are the same, so the result will look alike in both applications.

Iro Materials Library

New Iro Materials provide 3D designers with an intuitive, artistic way of working. They furnish designers with a catalog of materials that can simulate common surface properties (such as reflections, clear-coated paint, and transparency), giving great looking results with less designer and GPU overhead. They can be fully integrated into DCC tools like Blender, giving an exact WYSIWYG during asset creation and letting the designer examine and adjust the final visual result during modeling. Iro Materials are 90% less complex than PBR materials and thus more performant and low risk when deploying on low end / embedded hardware.
