Titania 2.0.1 released

Leipzig, 10. October 2016: We just released Titania 2.0.1 for all Ubuntu flavours! This is the first release in the stable Titania 2.0 series. This release, as well as Cobweb, implements dynamic shadows as shown in the video below. Have a look at Dynamic Shadows in Cobweb for a live demonstration.

Highlights of this Release

Video of dynamic shadows in Titania

For Titania SpotLight nodes, DirectionalLight nodes, and PointLight nodes, there is a shadow subsection in the light’s Attribute Editor. You can adjust the shadow color, the shadow intensity, the shadow diffusion, and the shadow map size. Titania then automatically creates shadow maps to render the desired shadow.

X3D Examples Library


A new examples library is now available at GitHub. Most of them are found on the Internet and are provided »as is«. They run fine with the latest version of Titania and Cobweb. We collected a lot of examples from simple to advanced worlds. If you want to download a single sub-directory you can use GitHub's svn support:

svn export https://github.com/create3000/Library/trunk/Examples/Astronomy

Copy and paste the line above into a terminal and replace the sub-directory with the directory of your choice. But now, have fun with watching and listening!
