HTML, CSS, PSD and More: 24 Free Design Resources from January 2014

Creativity is like a cat. Sometimes it gives you head butts and rubs against you. Then it delivers you nothing but dead prey or stays away completely for days. As a creative professional you need to find ways to get creativity back, while your cat just needs you to patiently wait as long as it takes. Sparking your creativity is best done by inspiration...

Not Up For Creative Cloud? 10 Professional Alternatives to Photoshop CC

Photoshop CC is no longer for sale. You can only rent it and pay a monthly fee to be allowed to use it.

HTML, CSS, PSD and More: 22 Free Design Resources from December 2013

All of us collect these resources. There’s no denying, we are hunter-gatherers. In the face of this fact we’ve put together yet another set stuffed with HTML, CSS and PSD...

From Scratch: Writing a 3D Soft Engine 3/6

In the previous tutorial, we learned how to draw lines and triangles. We really started to see the 3D side of our meshes, thanks to this wireframe rendering. But we’ve only displayed a cube… And even a simple cube already has 12 faces! Are we going to be forced to handle ourselves all the faces for more complex objects this way? Hopefully not. 3D modelers...

From Scratch: Writing a 3D Soft Engine 2/6

Now that we have built the core of our 3D engine along the lines of our previous tutorial #1, we will now work on enhancing the rendering. The next step is then to connect the dots to draw some lines in order to render what you probably know as a “wireframe” rendering. In today’s tutorial, you will learn how to draw lines, what a face is...

From Scratch: Writing a 3D Soft Engine 1/6

I’d to like to share with you how I’ve learned to build what’s known as a “3D soft engine” through a series of tutorials. “Software engine” means that we will use only the CPU to build a 3D engine in an old school way (remember Doom on your 80386 ?). I’ll share with you the C#, TypeScript and JavaScript versions of the code. In...

HTML5: Using IndexedDB with WebGL and Babylon.JS

In this article, I’d like to share everything I’ve been learning while developing the support for IndexedDB inside our 3D WebGL Babylon.JS game engine. Indeed, since 1.4.x, we’re now supporting storing & loading the JSON scenes containing our 3d meshes and their .PNG or .JPG textures as blobs from IndexedDB. This article is built around my own experience on this topic. It’s based on...
