Today TurboSquid held a Birds of a Feather meeting on 3D modeling standards. About 100 3D professionals and students joined us for a lively discussion on the CheckMate standard in its current form, and possible future developments. In attendance were CheckMate Advisory Board member Jed Denjean along with folks from Autodesk, Pixar, Ikea, Boeing, and various other companies involved in 3D modeling.
Then it was back to the exhibition for more technology. I was particularly intrigued by the Keyshot renderer, which imports 3D models created in other programs and creates photorealistic product shots in a matter of minutes. I’m definitely going to try this one out as soon as I can.
