Digital Element Updates WorldBuilder to version 3.1

(December 13, 2001)
Digital Element is shipping WorldBuilder 3.1 Standard and Professional. The update to WorldBuilder includes improvements on flickering, bug fixes, 3-D animated tutorials and the inclusion of Poser-Pro Pack Communicator support. Along with last months release of the Allen Whitt Tutorial and Source Pack, WorldBuilder 3.1 represents a major step forward in ease of use and stability of WorldBuilder. The update is free to existing WorldBuilder 3.0x users.

Some of the improvements include:

  • Accelerated up viewports and added new shortcuts.

  • transparency for area materials. You can adjust the transparency of an area material so that the underlying material can be seen.

  • Improved anti-aliasing. The texture anti-aliasing is generally revised. Anti- aliasing on the imported 3DS-materials is supported. Aliasing of the texture-based bumping is remarkably reduced.

  • The shadow projector now lets you lock the shadow view on an object or a group of objects it will take care of fitting the object if either the light source or the object is animated.

  • Improvements to leaves, volumetric light, parallel and point light shadows, areas on 3D meshes, rivers, and grass. Interface for persistent objects was also improved.
