Renderosity Magazine & CG Industry News

  • Book review: The Hows and whys of level design by Sergio Rosa (nemirc). Game development is a craft that requires a combination of different disciplines, and one of those disciplines is level design, a subject that can be taken for granted because some may be inclined to think it's only a matter of placing a terrain, obstacles and enemies, and various "game elements." However, this discipline is more complicated than it sounds.

  • Review: Fotojet - Free Photo Editor, Collage Creator and Graphic Design Application by Ricky Grove. Fotojet is an application designed for users who want to create cool graphics or a photo-collage, but don't have the time (or money) to learn a pro-level application like Adobe Photoshop. And since Fotojet is a template-based application it's pretty easy to look through the templates, find something that looks great and then add your own text or photos. It's really a neat tool that is entirely free for the standard edition (with some limitations).

  • Silo: 3D Modeling Zen for Games and Animation - Version 2.5 Just Released! Silo is a focused and lightning-fast standalone 3D modeler. Its deep modeling and UV mapping toolset has made it a favorite of pros for making game assets, movie characters, and objects for 3D printing. It's a huge upgrade over the modeling tools of bloated all-in-one packages, and works hand-in-hand with industry standards like Maya, Blender, and ZBrush, and game engines like Unity and Unreal.
