WebGL Lighting Techniques

Point Lights, Specular Lights, Blend Effects, Light Maps

Lighting adds realism and excitement. The following examples render light effects with WebGL, GLSL shaders, baked textures, and more.

3D For the Web

Learn 3D programming with short tutorials. WebGL allows developers and designers to create interactive 3D media for the Web. Become a WebGL programmer, based on the popular OpenGL ES language. Learn 3D Web design and 3D Web development.

3D Software Applications

Most current devices run WebGL! That's great news for developers, designers, and businesses. Now Windows PCs, Macintosh, Android, iPhone, and Windows Phone, with WebGL enabled browsers, run 3D interactive online media.

Three dimensional interactive projects were prepared with WebGL, Eclipse, 3ds Max, Photoshop, and free 3D Translator apps, implemented by Seven Thunder Software. Most 3D Web pages run with Seven Thunder Software's online 3D rendering software. Technologies include JavaScript, CSS3, and pure WebGL.

Pure WebGL means Seven Thunder Software currently avoids the use of prepared libraries such as Three.js, Babylon.js, or Unity. Often prepared libraries include unnecessary code which increases download and initialization time. Prepared libraries don't always provide the most compact efficient run time for mobile and other devices with limited capabilities. In other words, libraries might not run as quickly as simplified WebGL projects. Additionally pure WebGL more easily ports to other platforms, such as OpenGL ES, Android apps, and WebVR.

Have fun and love learning!
