Russian developers from Triumph LLC recently released an updated version of Blend4Web, an open source framework for creating interactive online 3D experiences.

Among new features users can find:

  • Augmented reality support.  The Blend4Web AR feature leverages the JavaScript port of the popular ARToolKit)


  • Blender object-level transform constraints. For now, four constraints are supported including Copy Location, Copy Rotation, Copy Transforms and Track To.


  • New logic node. Set Camera Limits has been implemented to set camera movement restrictions on the fly.


  • New environment lighting algorithm for Cycles. Materials containing Glossy BSDF and Diffuse BSDF nodes now automatically enable environment lighting, which takes into account the roughness parameter.
