Experimenting with Crytek Crysis Engine 3

11 Dec

I started using Crysis Engine 3 today, i was advised by Adam, (Uni Lecturer) to try it.

I seen some videos on Youtube and it looked impressive, so i thought give a go.

I have been using Unity 3D for the past 2 years and i understand how Unity works so trying the crysis engine was a new challenge and i like new challenges.

It took me about a hour to set up Maya with the engine, totally different to Unity, but i liked the exporting feature which is added to Maya, once setup you just click on a button setup couple of features and the model is available in the Crysis Engine.

Texturing took me an hour or so to learn, but when i got it , i was very impressed with the shadows and rendering in game, looked amazing, much better than Unity.

When i have time in the next week or so i will experiment with LUA the scripting language, im looking forward to getting my teeth into this new language for me, it looks similar to Javascript, but i havent had a proper play with it yet.

Overall very impressed so far.
