Wow, thanks for all the very positive comments in my
last blog entry. Must be a record for this blog, also if you consider the fact that at maximum only about 1% of all readers are posting comments at all on this blog (I think this can be generalized for most blogs, btw). For the weekend, here's a new shot of
the editor I'm working on:
I have improved the interface a lot since the last update. It is now really easy to move the camera, select objects and move, rotate and scale them. I had to try out different approaches and also looked at how other editors are solving this. I wanted a solution which would be easy for people not familiar with 3d editors and which they would be able to use without having to study a manual or help page. So everything is now possible by using menu/toolbar commands. But for the more advanced users, there are shortcuts, of course. I think the interface of these very basic commands is very important, so I invested much time into this to find the best possible solution, and I think it is now really ok.
Update: The editor has been released already, download the Irrlicht Editor here.
Keep up the good work!
