View Full Version : Looking for beta testers for the beginning 3D modeler Macrocosm

I everyone,

I must first explain the concept of the software :
The goal is to provide an interactive development. That is, new versions are released quite often (about once every two weeks), modifications, bug reports and improvments are done based principalely on remarks from users. For example, you tell me "It would be cool to have an option that merge two edges by pressing one key", I add it to the current release wish list (if it's not already full), and it is available in the next release.

Right now, the modeler is still in lack of tools, but I think you can already use it a bit. Here are two examples done by myself, and a tester :

You can download the software here :

The website is in french, but the software is in english, and there is an english part in the forum. You can give your opinion, and show WIP.

Tutorials will be released soon, as well as an english website.

So, come and take part of the development of the modeler !

An additional information about what is currently developed :

- A primitive menu
- The description in the help zone each time the mouse flys over a button
- Possibility to select the level of edition (vertex/face/edge) by left clicking on the mesh. Right now, a flying menu exists and allows the change in level of edition.
- A "Cut" tool (for Max users, that is "split polygon tool" for Maya users).

And a brief tutorial :
- RIGHT CLICK and move the mouse in a view : camera translation
- MIDDLE BUTTON and move : rotation of the view
- WHEEL : zoom

- The toolbox menu changes when you change the level of edition
- extrude edges : SPACE and move selected edges
- EXTRUDE faces : SPACE (or click the button in the toolbox menu)
- a view menu is available by RIGHT clicking the name of the view

That's it ! For the rest, try it by playing with Macrocosm !
