Qt 3D Studio 1.1 Released

We are happy to announce that Qt 3D Studio 1.1 has now been released. This release introduces many improvements to the user interface and introduces an improved way to define data driven UI content.

Qt 3D Studio is a design tool for creating 3D user interfaces and adding 3D content into Qt based applications.  With Qt 3D Studio you can easily define the 3D content look & feel, animations and user interface states. Please refer to earlier blog posts for more details on Qt 3D Studio functionality.

Data Inputs

As we have been gaining more feedback from the Qt 3D Studio users we have clearly seen that the way how application passes data to the user interface created with the Qt 3D Studio can be improved. To address this issue, we have created a new feature called Data Inputs. In 1.1. release this feature is a technology preview and it supports creating two types of data inputs: ranged numbers and text. Ranged numbers are mainly meant for controlling animation timelines. Text inputs can be used to modify the user interface text elements and control slide changes. For more details on how to use data inputs please refer to documentation

Behavior Scripts

1.1 release also introduces a technology preview of the new Behavior Scripting API which enables interacting with the runtime using QML and JavaScript. Behavior scripts can expose properties which can be used to modify the script's behaviour without changing the script itself. Furthermore scripts can also create events which trigger user interface changes e.g. UI state changes.

Behavior scripts can be used for example to create custom animations, generate simulation data or hook custom events (e.g. keyboard control) to the user interface.
