Vast range of avatars can be exported to Gamebryoâ??s engine

Evolver’s online store of 3D character models has become the latest service that’s been integrated with Emergent’s Gamebryo LightSpeed engine.

Users can now browse through Evolver’s web-based library of 3D characters – and even look through a selection of animations of each – before exporting a purchased avatar into the LightSpeed engine.

The strategic partnership between both groups will give Evolver’s service more exposure, and adds to a sizable list of services that the LightSpeed engine has integrated.

Evolver CEO Brian Nilles spoke of how its pre-made 3D models, and the LightSpeed engine itself, will both help speed up development efficiency.

The price of Evolver’s character models vary considerably, with home-made models (as pictured) selling for $9.99 and professional characters going no lower than $39 each.
