Google 3D Warehouse: Importing into Crysis

The latest in our series of posts on importing into the Crysis Sandbox looks at the Google 3D Warehouse. The warehouse is a repository of over 200,000 models and a unique archive of buildings and street furniture from around the world.

Its taken some time but we now have a path for importing any model from the 3D Warehouse into Crysis, the movie below details the Tate Modern:

We are not sure what the license implications are, but as soon as we know and as soon as the latest exporter is out from EA (soon) we will have a tutorial and work flow online.

Our progress to date movie is embedded below, featuring the Swiss Re, Tower Bridge and work in the Sandbox:

The potential of using the 3D warehouse in Crysis is intriguing to say the least...

    Looking forward to that tutorial. Would be great if only sketchup (pro) is needed to export to crysis through .3ds. Opens up a lot of real time virtual walkthroughs possibilities. Hope the workflow is straightforward.

  4. not sure if you have posted a tutorial yet, but i would love to see one! i can export, but only in small pieces and with textures that have a mind of their own. thanks!
