Realtime Diamond Renderer

Away Studios developed a collection of Away3D extensions specifically for the realtime rendering of diamond jewellery. The proof-of-concept was commissioned by well known jewellery manufacturer, and produced as part of a consultancy for the Germany-based digital agency Metrix Internet Design.

The delivery included:

  • Custom reflection map material for simulating internal reflections
  • Post-process glare filter for sparkling effects
  • Post-process lens flare filter for glinting effects
  • Test harness for experimenting with different effects setups

The additional effects methods are due to be added to the open source repo for the Away3D engine here.

Test view of one of the sample rings for the project can be seen here.
