Sweet Home 3D 2.0
I'm pleased to announce you the availability of Sweet Home 3D version 2.0.
From a 3D point of view, this new release has two interesting points:
- I added some new preferences that let users see each piece of furniture from its top in the plan (2D view) as seen in this image.
Each piece of furniture in the plan is in fact an image created from an offscreen image using a [url= http://download.java.net/media/java3d/javadoc/1.5.2/javax/media/j3d/View.html#setProjectionPolicy(int)]parallel projection[/url].
- I added the 3D view > Create photo... menu item, to let the user create an image of the 3D view at PNG format. This dialog has a quality slider to choose if the image should be generated with Java3D or with SunFlow to get a better rendering.
For people interested by this rendering engine, the code that transform the Java3D scene in a SunFlow scene is in PhotoRenderer class.
