Understand, train, and be ready to develop 3D Web applications/video games using the Babylon.js framework, even for beginners
About This Book
Understand the basics of 3D (along with the theory) before practicing
Each mini-project provides previous features, alongside the new feature you are learning, to supply the examples
Learn from the best of the best, a developer at Microsoft, France
Who This Book Is For
Babylon.JS Essentials is intended for developers who want to enter the world of 3D development for the Web, or developers who want to add the Babylon.js framework to their skill set. The notion of Oriented Object Programming would be helpful to understand the architecture of the Babylon.js framework. Also, a familiarity with Web development would be useful, to understand the principles used.
What You Will Learn
Learn the basics of 3D using Babylon.js without too much theory but with an emphasis on practice, for a better understanding of the architecture
Know the usage of Material—a fundamental principle of 3D engines in Babylon.js—and then customize the appearance of 3D objects
Integrate collisions and physics in gameplay. Understand the notion of impostor for physics simulation
Manage, create, and spatialize audio tracks in 3D scenes
Go further with the Babylon.js framework to create actions on events
Create rendering effects provided by the Babylon.js framework, such as post-processes
Are you familiar with HTML5? Do you want to build exciting games and Web applications? Then explore the exciting world of game and Web development with one of the best frameworks out there: Babylon.JS.
Starting from the beginning, the book introduces the required basics for 3D development and the knowledge you need to use the Babylon.js framework. It focuses on the simplicity provided by Babylon.js and uses a combination of theory and practice. All the chapters are provided with example files ready to run; each example file provides the previously learned features of the framework. Finally, developers will be ready to easily understand new features added to the framework in the future.
