Three young artists take on the new trend of 3D art with their own apps –
By Emily E. McQuadePublished November 10, 2018 07:23:11Three young artists, all of whom are graduates of The College of Design at the University of Toronto, are breaking new ground in the world of 3d design, as they make their debut with an app called 3D Artist University.
The app is free to download for users to use in a variety of creative applications, including the film The Imitation Game, a game developed by a group of designers at Sony that’s set to hit store shelves later this month.
The new app aims to provide users with tools for creating 3D assets and creating their own 3D creations, and allows them to create their own unique objects using Photoshop.
The creators behind the app, all from the U of T’s College of Art, Design and Architecture, said they hope to inspire young people to pursue a career in the field, but also to challenge preconceived notions about what a 3D artist can do.
“It’s not necessarily about creating objects for the viewer, it’s about what we’re looking at,” said Matt Wahlberg, a graduate student in the College of Architecture who co-created the app.
“You can do any kind of 3-D thing you want.
And I think that’s a really cool thing.”
I think it’s a little bit like a new generation of 3Ds, but it’s definitely not the old 3D.
“The app allows users to create a 3-dimensional object using the software, which can be built from a variety a materials and shapes.”
While the app has been in development for more than a year, it is not yet available to download on the iOS App Store. “
There are three different shapes that can be used to create an object.”
While the app has been in development for more than a year, it is not yet available to download on the iOS App Store.
Instead, users will have to go to the UofT’s website to download the software.
“You’ll need to have a Unity3D or Unity4K [a 3D modelling and animation engine] account and you’ll also need to be a U of Toronto student,” said the app’s creators, Matt Walsberg and Matt Waisberg.
“So basically, you’ll need a university account.”
Matt Wahlborg said he is excited about the new 3D design tool because he thinks the app can help students understand how 3D shapes and materials are created, and he hopes that the students will use it in their own projects as well.
“If you want to go and do a 3d piece and make it your own, then you can go through the process of making your own materials, then go through that process with 3D,” he said.
“That’s really the beauty of it.
You can go to a design course and do your own design.”
Matt said that, for the most part, he is concerned that students won’t be able to use the 3D software for creative projects.
“A lot of them won’t have access to it,” he admitted.
“I think there’s definitely going to be an issue of not being able to make 3D pieces, because the tools are really limited.”
Matt and his brother are currently working on a film that is currently in development, but are working to make it more accessible to students, and to encourage them to make their own models of the film.
“So, in a way, we’re trying to get students to use this as a stepping stone, and then they can go and try and make their 3D designs and things that they want,” Matt said.
The project was inspired by the film, The Imitative Game, which is set in a post-apocalyptic world in which the only thing people are allowed to create is what they see, as it is an artifact of a certain past.
“The idea is that if you look at it, you can make something and it will look amazing, but you can’t see it, so that’s why the game’s called The Imitations Game,” Matt explained.
“We want to create some of those objects for people to use, but that’s not really what the app is about.
It’s about creating a game, and creating something that will be seen by the world.”
Matt explained that while the app could be useful to people in the creative industries, the most important thing is that it can be a tool for people who are just starting out in the industry.
“In terms of getting them to understand how it’s done and not just the basics of it, we really want to encourage people to start their careers in the business world, because it will pay off for them,” he explained.
