3D in PDF documents

Post by grimey » Sat Feb 11, 2006 9:37 pm

Found this at www.opengl.org
Acrobat 3D provides OpenGL Capture capability to capture 3D designs directly from CAD applications
February 09, 2006 Acrobat 3D lets you add 3D to an Acrobat pdf document. It includes an OpenGL Capture capability that captures any output from a CAD application that is displayed using the OpenGL API (whatever is going through the OpenGL stream), and converts this into an interactive 1 page 3D pdf document. The OpenGL Capture utility will handle geometry, textures, materials and basic shaders.
That should work with blender, right?

if it's opengl, yes.
Though you might have the surprise to see all the UI in this capture as well, as All blender is in opengl.

also somebody made a patch to blender a month or two ago to save the gl render as postscript, which is vector data similar to pdf, and can be converted to it

Its not a 3d still frame, it's a 3d scene that can be included in pdf.
So people can rotate/soon etc 3d objects inside the pdf file...
