London Eye Visualisation in Oblivion

By September 28, 2006 No Comments

Following on from our post on the Quad at University College London in the Oblivion Engine we have run a test on importing raw CAD data. Our beta model of the London Eye imported without error which is encouraging for visualising the London model as a whole.

The movie above demonstrates the London Eye, placed outside the Quad. Note the movie has sound which adds considerably to the sense of place. We couldn’t resist the chance to ride up to the London Eye on a horse, where else could you do it but in Oblivion (?).

A higher resolution movie can be downloaded here (37Mb .wmv) a full res version will be available tomorrow once it has processed
