Urban Worlds: A New Procedural Modeler (Presented by


Introducing threedee, a new procedural modeler for urban environments. With the advent of great natural procedural modelers there is a need to provide the same level of service for urban content. Threedee proposes a novel approach to describe such environments that is easy to learn, artist friendly and with a large variation spectrum. We will present the way we have overcome traditional limitations of architectural content generation. In particular, we will introduce the concept of responsive geometry which allows us to create a more productive workflow generating high quality 3D cities . Artist involvement is key to high quality results so our model drastically reduces the number of instructions and includes drawing tools for many of those. Our goal is to make threedee available to all regardless of background.
