The December 2009 release of 3D Rad comes with a fully featured HLSL shader editor and debugger. The ability to directly add HLSL code to regular scripting, which can be used to manipulate run-time shader parameters, aims to maximize shaders portability while also simplifying prototyping and development.
This update also comes with new features to improve ease of use further for non-coders and important bug fixes.
3D Rad is a freeware, user-friendly 3d editor with a straightforward developing workflow and ready-to-use physics simulation. You can use it to create any sort of stand-alone, interactive 3d project for Windows Vista/XP.
Ideal for CG artists and non-coders, but flexible enough to meet the needs of expert developers as well.
