We are happy to announce that Qt 3D Studio 1.0 has now been released. Qt 3D Studio provides a 3D user interface authoring system that caters for both software developers and graphic designers.
Qt 3D Studio Editor
Qt 3D Studio is the authoring tool for creating interactive 3D presentations and applications. Editor is a cross-platform Qt application which can be used in Windows, Mac and Linux. You can import design assets from popular authoring tools such as Photoshop, Autodesk Maya and The Foundry MODO.
Qt 3D Studio Editor & Viewer with the remote connection feature
Qt 3D Studio Viewer
Qt 3D Studio Viewer is a great tool for testing the design in action. You can also use the remote connection feature built in to the Studio to connect to a device running the Viewer to see immediately the design changes in the device. We have published the Viewer application in the Google Play for easy start with Android devices.
Viewer can also generate image sequences from Qt 3D Studio scenes which can then be animated or combined into a video. This is especially useful for example if you are using the same user interface also in devices which don’t have enough resources to run a full-blown 3D user interface. This allows you to use the same tools and workflow in both cases. This feature can be used to create videos you can easily share during the design process.
Installation & Platform support
Editor & Viewer are released for Windows & macOS. Linux is also supported, but pre-built binaries are not yet provided with the 1.0 release. So Linux users need to build from source. Please also refer to the build instructions if you are creating applications for Android or embedded targets. In addition to Windows, Mac, Linux and Android the Qt 3D Studio 1.0 supports embedded Linux as well as INTEGRITY and QNX real-time operating systems as deployment targets. In the future we will continue adding more platforms such as iOS. For detailed platform support please refer to documentation.
Easiest way to install the Qt 3D Studio is through the online installer where you can find it under Tools -section. If you don’t yet have the online installer you can get from our download page.
