XChange Announce New ZAM 3D

XChange Announce New ZAM 3D
Tool for Microsoft Windows Vista application development

XChange International, the source for extended technology worldwide, are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the new ZAM 3D utility. ZAM is a 3D XAML Tool for Microsoft Windows Vista application development. It allows users to integrate 3D UI controls, elements and components into their Windows Vista Applications in ways that have historically only been possible through rich-media outlets such as broadcast TV, film, video and multimedia websites. It provides developers and designers with a quick and easy solution for creating 3D interface elements for Microsoft Windows Vista based applications. It also acts as a 3ds to XAML and dxf to XAML converter.

ZAM 3D is unique in that while it was originally designed for interactive designers, it utilises tools that are familiar to 2D designers, making it easy for anyone to quickly produce 3D animations. ZAM 3D exports XAML code for use in Microsoft Windows Vista application development, a feature which is not found in other 3D tools of its kind or in the same price range.

ZAM 3D fits into the Designer-side workflow by complimenting Microsoft Expression Blend. The designer uses ZAM 3D to easily create 3D interface elements, models, controls, styles or layouts, exporting them to XAML markup with a single click without any need to write, or even understand the complex markup that goes into building a WPF 3D scene. The .NET 3.0 and WPF ecosystem separates the interface design and the application logic, enabling designers to focus on creating truly intuitive user interfaces using the versatile XAML declarative markup language. These XAML files can then be leveraged by a developer through powerful coding and data binding to create interactive, next-generation applications. The combination of design-driven interface development with robust application logic will provide the high-fidelity user experiences developers and designers have been seeking for many years. Furthermore, the incredible depth of the WPF API allows designers and developers to leverage 3D in ways that have only been possible through rich-media outlets until now. The creative methods of how 3D can be utilised in application design are virtually endless, and ZAM 3D is here to supply users with the critical first step of 3D design and export to “Avalon’s” interface design language, XAML.

ZAM 3D is available now through XChange International. To order, or for more information, users can visit http://www.xchangeuk.com, or call on +44(0)20 7490 4455 during UK business hours. Email address is info@xchangeuk.com.

If he is fortunate, replica watches however, as a favourite child of knowledge should Rolex watches be, he will meet with suitable Rolex Air-King auxiliaries who will shorten and lighten his task; I mean so-called cynics, those who simply recognize the animal, the commonplace Rolex replica and "the rule" in themselves, and at the same time have so much spirituality and ticklishness as to Replica Hermes handbags make them talk of themselves and their like BEFORE WITNESSES—sometimes they wallow.
