3D Interactive CGPortfolio challenge - Dec 30th 2013 - Jan 20th 2014

Welcome to our newsiest CGPortfolio upload challenge - just in time for the new year. This one is easy! You just need to upload a finished 3D model to the Verold 3d interactive viewer, and add it to your CGPortfolio by Monday January 20th at midnight PST.

Once you've done this, your model will be added to our gallery here .

There are no criteria for creating your model, other than it must be in 3D, and it must have been uploaded into Verold and placed in your CGPortfolio . So a great opportunity to make something completely new, or to finish and upload something you've been working on for awhile.

We're fortunate to have recruited a couple of awesome judges - Sony Santa Monica's Katon Callaway , and Schell Games' John DeRiggi . Verold's Mike Bond, formerly Lead Game Designer at Tecmo Koei Canada, has joined us as a third judge. At the end of the competition period, they'll each pick their favourite piece and give reasons for their choices (and their decisions are final!)

Winners will receive a free 1 year CGSConnect membership (giving advertising free viewing of their CGPortfolios), a free Ballistic Book of their choice and a CGTraining-on-Demand tutorial of their choice.

Happy New Year and happy modelling! Post questions in this thread if you need to, and you're welcome to post links to your newly uploaded models.

Hi All,

I'd also suggest checking out the getting started guide for artists on the Verold website. We've put a lot of work into the engine over the last two years, and you'll be amazed at how full-featured it is. Your models and animations will look great in real-time, in the browser!

You can also reach us anytime with questions or comments here on the forum, or by email to info@verold.com.

Good luck!

Verold looks amazing, that is definitely a game changer for presenting your models. It seems like your using similar technology to unity plug-in or the KeyShotVR. Regardless, amazing sight and I"m signing up asap. Thanks
  01 January 2014

Yes - very similar technology to Unity3d, though running on WebGL in the browser rather than OpenGL through a plugin.

Happy to have you onboard, and looking forward to seeing what you create!

very cool. so is Verold a plug-in that can be used on modellers own websites?
  01 January 2014
Yes, absolutely! The Verold embed works like Youtube, can be placed on any website.

4 days left in the challenge

Hi all,

I'm just sending out a reminder to get your 3D models into Verold Studio and then embedded in your portfolio projects in the next 4 days to be entered into the contest. Even old projects are eligible as long as you embed a Verold model.

So don't miss your opportunity to add your project to the gallery and be entered to win.

Talking Submission for the 3D Interactive CGPortfolio


I was unsure of the correct procedure for posting to my CG Portfolio, so I decided to upload a .jpg of the image (a few texture differences exist; but overall a great concept turned vivid and real Verold!) to my CG Portfolio. Enjoy!

How to post your Verold work into CGPortfolio

Hi all -

The competition has been extended to finish tonight (20th) at midnight. All you need to do is put your work into Verold (like you have done). Then go into your CGPortfolio, create a project based on the same work, and embed the Verold link.


It's not hard - if you hurry you can still make the deadline!

Verold, very nice tool! It's really interesting to see other people models online.


I couldn't add it to the gallery. I think it was too late..

Hi - not too late! It will self-add to the gallery - it just might take a few hours to show up

I uploaded mine about 36 hours ago and it hasn't shown up in the gallery.
