Press release: EON Creator 4.8 Sets a New Benchmark in Virtual 3D Learning
The new features of EON Creator 4.8 offer expanded support for more stereo devices, expanded file support, new exploration interaction and improved Quiz creation
IRVINE, Calif. – EON Reality, the world’s leading interactive 3D software provider, today released EON Creator 4.8, an easy-to-use eLearning authoring tool that integrates 3D concepts with the web, PowerPoint, videos, sounds, animations and more into complete, blended learning environments. The new release also comes with an updated website look and new video tutorials.
With EON Creator 4.8, users can create unique educational 3D lessons and interactive scenes using high-quality 3D components from the EON Experience portal and blend them together with their own 3D content. The portal contains thousands of models and scenes accessible directly from inside the EON Creator authoring tool. Once content is downloaded into EON Creator, users can add contextual knowledge to any 3D object in their scene. Users can also link multiple 3D scenes together to create continuous learning environments.
3D content can then be published automatically in the EON Experience portal or shared in a live 3D multi-user session in EON Coliseum. EON Creator can present the virtual 3D learning experience across multiple devices- from laptops to 3D projected displays.
“With our rapidly growing community of EON Creator users we are pleased to be able to release this major upgrade with many enhanced functionalities and requested features. Our goal is to provide the easiest and most intuitive workflow for interactive 3D content development for education, allowing teachers and instructors as well as our fastest growing user segment students to start producing content quicker,” said Mats W.
