  • Doom3 map converter into mesh
  • Full documentation pack
  • NormalMapper
  • 3DStudio mesh export/import plugin
  • 3DStudio skinned mesh export plugin

Unigine was created taking into consideration that there are a lot of programmers who are familiar with C/C++ and artists who work in 3DStudio or Maya.
So Unigine scripts have C/C++ like syntax and there is a set of plugins for 3DStudio and Maya to provide opportunity of work in accustomed enviroment to our customers.
We hope this will increase development speed of your Unigine-based application.
