31 XE3 quick videos in 31 days - Oct31 - Importing 3D Models In Your FireMonkey Applications

Posted by on in Blogs
RAD Studio XE3 and FireMonkey 2 include support for importing 3D models into your HD and 3D Delphi and C++ applications.  The TModel3D FireMonkey component supports loading of DAE, OBJ and ASE model files and their textures.  TModel3D supports the new FireMonkey 2 Material Source components that I covered in a previous blog post and video.  This quick video shows you how to load a 3D model file and apply a texture using the TLightMaterialSource component.

Additional information about FireMonkey 3D and 3D models is available on the Embarcadero DocWiki at:

    Hello mister Ohlsson.
    I am a delphi developer, and I develop also 3d applications. Lately I have been requested to write an application that displays a video in 3d preferably using openGL, but if there is a component in delphi firemonkey that does that it is o.k. too. That application should also be able to stop and resume the video. Does the firemonkey have a solution to that? I have been looking for a solution to that requirement, through the web, but I found nothing yet. So in my despair I posted that comment...
