Unity 2017: Architectural Visualization

Sun, 10/08/2017 - 20:00
Want to explore architectural models like you do video games? Learn to create architectural visualizations in Unity 2017, the free and full-featured game engine that enables you to turn 3D models into interactive experiences deployed across web, desktop, mobile, TV, consoles, and more. This project-based course takes you step-by-step through the development of an immersive environment for Frank Lloyd Wright's famous Fallingwater, named "the best all-time work of American architecture" by the American Institute of Architects.

Instructor Scott Onstott starts with a SketchUp model that he cleans up and imports into Unity, where he creates the first-person and third-person characters and cameras needed to explore the model. Then he shows how to improve the building's appearance by sculpting and texturing the surrounding landscape, and populating it with trees, moving grass, and flowing water. Next, he demonstrates how to animate and script doors so they automatically open as the character approaches. Then real-time lighting is baked into textures for greater efficiency and an overview map is added to keep the player oriented within the overall floorplan. Finally, Scott tests and deploys the final interactive visualization for desktop and the web. No plugins are required to view the results! Follow along to build your own version of the project and strengthen your Unity skills.

CLR Memory Management for Developers

Wed, 10/04/2017 - 20:00
Automatic memory management—known colloquially as garbage collection—makes programming the .NET platform a much more manageable task. But it carries with it its own share of issues. For example, it can't always know which objects to release if programmers don't know how the garbage collector determines which objects are currently in use. In addition, developers often make poor design decisions in the name of performance that actually creates more work for the garbage collector. In this course, instructor Ted Neward helps you avoid such pitfalls by helping to familiarize you with the core concepts of memory management. He also dives into some of the fundamental algorithms used by garbage collectors, before going into the details around the CLR itself.
