Easily Create Immersive 3D UI Experiences for WinVista Applications
Now you can integrate 3D UI controls, elements, and components into your Windows Vista applications in ways that have only been possible through rich-media outlets such as broadcast TV, film, video and multimedia websites.
Electric Rain ZAM 3D™ is a full-featured 3D modeling application that enables easy creation, customization and animation of 3D interface elements for Windows Vista based applications. Once a 3D scene is created, ZAM 3D automatically generates the XAML (eXtensible Application Markup Language) markup necessary to convert the 3D elements into a (formally Avalon) 3D scene. XAML files created with ZAM 3D can be directly integrated into your application development environment to create rich and engaging user experiences never before possible.
