Major new version of DX Studio released with live editing

PRESS RELEASE for Immediate Release

Date: 25th September 2008

Pinewood Studios based software developers Worldweaver Ltd have announced a major new release of their games and simulation platform“DX Studio”.

Version 3 brings a new“live” display system for the 2D and 3D editors. This means users can see exactly how their applications will look as they build them, complete with per-pixel lighting and shadows.

A large batch of new features and capabilities have also been added, including Firefox and Google Chrome players, Ogg Theora support with HTTP streaming, the latest nVidia PhysX engine and a 3D gizmo for faster object manipulation.

Also included, which is perhaps unusual for a 3D engine, is the ability to create reusable 2D and 3D controls. These are similar to User Controls in .Net but with DirectX display. Full details of all the new features in v3.0 can be found at www.dxstudio.com/news.

“The live editor is an interesting concept as we've now used DX Studio to build DX Studio! We’ve seen a significant performance boost as the editor can now benefit from all speed optimizations in the main engine,” said CEO and founder Chris Sterling.
