3D animation communicates concepts quickly. This shiny 3D compass illustrates components as it rotates.

Compass Preparation

Seven Thunder Software mapped the compass with silver and red diffuse colors. The metal shines with highlights based on light location, prepared with render to texture which enables fast loading 3D Web applications.

Seven Thunder Software's Windows 3D Translator app converted Collada DAE data for display online with lighting.

The original compass model was provided by a third party. However the model required repairs to render well, including filling holes in the geometry with 3ds Max Cap Holes, Border and Cap.

Video animation created with a range of tools including After Effects, Photoshop, 3ds Max, JavaScript, HTML5, sprite sheets or WebGL.
