The third annual 3D Web Fest is a fundraiser benefiting non-profit CODAME ART+TECH whose mission is to embrace innovation through creativity, play, and collaboration between companies, artists and technologists, building immersive, engaging, out of the ordinary experiences.
“After the Flood” is one of those projects!
Take a walk through the fantastical environment of water, glass, and steel running entirely within your web browser!
After the Flood showcases the latest advancements in interactive 3D content on the web. It is powered by WebGL 2.0, now available in Firefox and Chrome.
It was made using the open source PlayCanvas Engine and Online Tools in collaboration with Mozilla.
Techniques used include HDR+MSAA rendering, using z-buffer as a texture, procedural clouds using 3D textures, hardware PCF, alpha to coverage and transform feedback particles.
It demonstrates features such as procedural clouds, procedural water ripples and reflection, leaf particles, animated trees, mirrors, dynamic lights, compressed textures, asset streaming, runtime lightmap baking, and more.
“After the Flood” is the work of the artists Will Eastcott, Mr F, Maksims Mihejevs, George Amelekin, Sasha, Roman Yuris, Elena Kondrashina, Ivan Podzorov, Yulia Kuznechenkova, Leonid Kolyagin and Manos Kalaitzoglou.
