Software for Making 3D Presentations January 11, 2010

Hey,
Since I just introduced myself, without telling a thing about the project that I’m conducting here, I’m gonna talk about Dimpress 3D, it’s a small piece of software which will allow anyone to create profissional good looking 3D presentations without the need to know how exactly do these things work. It is being developed as a final project in the computer science course. The developers are Diogo Outerelo, Igor Schkrab and me. The idea for this project was given by our mentor Sandro Andrade.
The Dimpress 3D consists in a tool for building presentations, almost like the ones created by softwares like PowerPoint or OpenOffice Impress, the main difference here is the final result, our software will generate animated, multi-directional and visual attractive content. To catch these goals, there will be used visual resources like 3D techniques, Physics Simulation and whatever the free software community can think, ’cause we are talking about a tool that will be free software and plugin-based, which means that, anyone sufficiently interested can improve its funciontalities by writing plugins.
The Dimpress 3D is a Work In Progress, and, the basics of the application is already done. By now, we are developing the plugin architecture, doing UI improvements and building up the ‘Sliding Panels’ showing paradigm, which will be the basic model of the presentations done with Dimpress 3D. Every showing paradigm specifies how the presentation must appear, the scenario, the font style, the colors, the transitions. The ‘Sliding Panels’ consists in Panels in a three-dimensional environment which slides lightly from one, to another, backward and forward.
Well, for now, is this it. We’ll be posting sample videos soon, and more
explanations, and, we hope you like it. =)
See the video below, it is using a ‘Cube Paradigm’ to show the content:
Bye.

Hi,
did you get into contact with the koffice-people? Looks as if there could be potential for cooperation etc.

Regards
Markus

Hi Markus,

Thanks for answering. Actually, we didn’t make any contact with other developers yet, we are on the start of the development. Talk to Koffice people is a very good idea, thanks for the hint.

best regards,
Vinicius

This is impressive !

The idea is very good, and using Blender which I know very well, the potential is unlimited !

I hope I will be able to use this application one day ! The integration with koffice would be great, because there are many things you would not have to care about, and it would provide many functionalities to the final user.

Thanks Crismon, for referencing our job,🙂
By the way, that was a wrong phrase in the post, that you quote in yours, I’ve just fixed it, would be nice if you could update your post too, as follows:

“it’s a small piece of software which will allow anyone to create profissional good looking 3D presentations without the need to know how exactly do these things work”

sorry and thank you!

Not yet, but there will be, very, very soon. =)

We are finishing our job at the college and the software is already functional. I’ll make a post with the current state of the project this weekend, I promise! =)

Thanks
