Read3DS is a 3D Studio file reader (*.3DS)
It does not read the 3D Studio Max files (*.MAX).
It has been designed for Linux and Solaris (Sun's UNIX), and it should
also work with other UNIX.
!! Read3DS is a cardware !!
It means that if you like it I will be happy to receive a postcard
from you :)
Read3DS is a 3D engine which displays the 3D Studio file
as a 3D object on which you can interact.
It does not use Hardware 3D Acceleration
The purpose of this site is to provide a little tool, show some screnshots
made of it and to exchange some coding informations
For some informations on the begining of the
creation of this little tool (C/asm) click here
After a looong time, I rewrite the whole stuff in C++ for UNIX
The first real "not too buggy" release has
it's own presentation page
The second release provides much more shadings,
all the screenshots were done with that one
There is 5 pages of screenshots you
can watch here
You can also download some of the 3D Studio
files I'm using
Several XWD files are also provided
xwd is a little binary provide on UNIX for, eg, making some scrrenshots.
The file must be in depth 8 / PseudoColor in order to be used by Read3DS.
For downloading Read3DS (binaries or source)
Last but not least for more information on the
program and it's author :) ...
