Announcing Element 3D V2!
It has been a little over 2 years since the release of Element 3D V1 and I still remember it quite vividly. I recall staying up all night before the launch, trying to get everything done. I was nervous and excited.  My son Josh had just been born a week earlier and I was working from home at the time. […]
Element 3D V2 Official Release Date!
Element 3D V2 will be available in 2 weeks on Dec 2! Yeah! I know I’m 2 days past my November goal but we are really happy with the progress and we needed the extra time to get everything dialed in! This update is insane! What can I say, we like to push the limits of technology and features, but […]
Technical Details about E3D V2
Now that we have released the first look at Element 3D V2, you can see that this is not a small update to our plug-in. It is a massive overhaul with many big features. So, I thought I would take a little time to answer a few technical questions. NOTE: Pricing information and upgrade paths […]
Element 3D V2: New Specular Model!
Of the many new features announced with Element 3D V2 (so far), there is one I am particularly excited about and that is the new specular highlight model. The new spec model takes advantage of the new physical shader system and features a natural light falloff  helps create more realistic shaders! You can even get the specular to […]

I wish I knew enough 3D know-how to contribute... but to everyone who is contributing, please make various city set objects like flying cars (police cars too?), bus stations, monorails, highways, etc so they can be inserted into city scenes. Basically anything you'd need to make an indie film look like a big budget film. I can't wait to see the results of what people create. Thanks! :)

    You could probably still submit since they're still compiling and proofreading the other entries. Definitely worth a shot since I know they've been pushing for a lot of quality submissions (hence the initial deadline extension)

Andrew just wondering, so E3D is like a game engine (sorry if I'm wrong) so just wondering if game engines like cryengine are able to do real time reflection and tessellation, would E3D ever going to be able to do things like that? maybe version 3 or something?

    Lol I'm not Andrew but I thought I'd answer this anyway; no, E3D is not a game engine. WILL it be? No one knows, except Andrew, maybe.

Are textures required? Will we need to create our own or can we use textures from other sources?
    1 year ago
    Hi, you need to add textures when uploading your model and you have to make sure they are correctly UV mapped. There are some websites that offer royalty free textures for free like http://www.cgtextures.com/

and 1 more question is it include futuristic bridge ?
    1 year ago
    Hi, I can't think of a reason why you wouldn't be able to use this without the metropolitan pack. I can try to make some kind of bridge, maybe it will end up in the pack for you to use.

    What has the futuristic city pack got to do with the metroplitan Pack.........?

    No you cant use it, because all 3-D Buildingsmodels are only in combination with the metropolitan pack useable. it is the same as the sports pack. you can only use 3-D Sports models, if you had andrews sports pack! etc.
    To Andrew: What about same % for my next VC Buy? :-)

    For all who are now confused: its a Joke!

    Guys you DO NOT need metropolitan in order to use the Futuristic Community Pack. All these packs are simply a collection of different 3D Models. That's like asking if you can use a model you downloaded off of turbosquid just because you do not own another model that is avaiable on the site.

Hey Kramer! I'm sure you guys have considered this already, but what would you say to the idea of Metro 2 having random trees/parks? Aerial shots don't look convincing enough for me without that detail.

    Hard to comment this cuz it doesn't make any sense.
    Don't wanna hurt ur feelings but no CGI, no clouds, no smooth animation, no 'story', and the music is terrible for this animation.

Hey Andrew and team, just a heads up. You need to make sure the models you receive are original works. I am not sure how you do that. The community here is pretty cool but you have to watch yourself. The reason I am writing this is because samsung already got stung TWICE with their "submit a photo from your samsung phone" competition and one guy who's picture was stolen was a fellow Indonesian brother.

Great initiative though and very inspirational. Thanks for everything.
