Crysis Update: Importing from Google 3D Warehouse

By February 27, 2008 4 Comments

A quick update on progress – see our Crysis Thread for more posts and movies – we have a work flow in place to take any model from the Google 3D Warehouse and import it into Crysis. The image above is the Washington National Cathedral – direct from the 3D Warehouse.

It gets around the multiple texture limitation and seems to be working so far – we are currently working on importing the Church from our Churches: Modelling Architecture post.

We are not sure of the legal implications of taking models made for Google Earth and using them in Crysis but the potential for entire city models is intriguing…
