I’ve been dipping into various bits of 3D over the past couple of months:
- Compositing models into videos for How a Car Works using Adobe After Effects and the Element3D plugin (super fast renders).
- Playing with the HTC Vive VR headset
- Relearning and modeling extensively with Blender
A couple of years ago I made some simple 3D content for How a Car Works and it was sluggish on any desktop, and unusable on a mobile device. Now I’m looking at a scene which is highly responsive on an iPhone 7 - and likely to get more so.
I’m not sure that VR headsets are going to be anything but a fad, but I think that 3D content is going to be widespread on the web shortly.
