CDOT helps develop 3D creation tool
Seneca’s Centre for Development of Open Technology (CDOT), in partnership with Exocortex Technologies, has helped develop a prototype for Clara.io — a cloud based tool that allows users to create 3D scenes and animations.
The new software was presented this week at SIGGRAPH, an annual computer graphics conference held in Anaheim, California.
Exocortex, a global innovator in the 3D computer graphics software solutions industry, approached the College to work on this project after learning about CDOT’s extensive work with WebGL, which is used to render 3D graphics in web browsers without the need for plugins. Clara.io allows users to create high quality 3D graphic content in a web browser and share it on the fly.
Exocortex has received funding from the Ontario Centres of Excellence to commercialize the product.
