    Default xLights 3D Preview Demo

    A quick 1 minute sequence clip demonstrating the 3D preview capabilities I've been working on in xLights. I modeled my house in SketchUp, exported as a Wavefront .OBJ file and imported into xLights. Images can be placed anywhere so I have a google maps image of my yard placed on the ground.

    Very nice Gil. Looks like it is coming along well. Are you using it this year for your display or just running tests?

    I'm planning on using it. That is my main Show directory and I'm working on getting all the models moved into position. But I probably won't get any time to sequence so I'll be stuck using the same songs again this year or find a couple new ones I can map to my house. Using the 3D version really only provides a different playback preview.

    Sweet. You are taking layout and preview of shows to another level.

    Wow.....that is sooooooo cool! Gil do you ever stop to eat or sleep?

    Thanks for posting that....I was curious how it was going.... Wish I had enough 'chops' to help with the testing but I'd probably be more of a drag than a help.....

    Gil,

    How do you import the .obj file? The ability to add the 3D model of the house is what will make the useful for my particular situation.

    First of all you need to compile the 3D branch as the 3D obj import has not been released yet.
