OPPO declared today that it has joined the Open 3D Foundation (O3DF), a nonprofit organisation that is a part of the Linux Foundation, as a Premier member. By funding open source projects in 3D graphics, rendering, and game development, the O3DF was established in 2021 to encourage collaboration and resource sharing among creators. The Open 3D Engine (O3DE), a cross-platform, open source engine that can power AAA games and 3D worlds of cinematic quality, is the O3DF’s flagship project. More than 25 additional top technological firms support the O3DF, including Adobe, Amazon Web Services, Intel, and Microsoft.
By joining the Foundation, OPPO will collaborate with other industry titans to improve the performance of 3D graphics on mobile devices in addition to helping to create and adapt 3D graphics technology for them. OPPO will actively engage in the O3DF Governing Board and its Technical Advisory Committee as part of its commitment to the O3DF. OPPO will also participate in the initiative to form a working group with a focus on the development and adaption of the O3DE for mobile devices.
The O3DE is a cross-platform, modular, open-source 3D engine featuring a photorealistic 3D renderer and other capabilities designed to power everything from AAA games to high-fidelity simulations and 3D environments fit for the big screen. The engine is accessible anywhere and is licenced by MIT and Apache 2.0. As a result of the O3DE’s entirely modular design, developers are free to select the functionality they require.
The engine is very scalable because it is open source and modular, which allows developers to include new tools, features, and development procedures in their projects. As a result of its cross-platform compatibility, real-time 3D assets and tools are portable and interoperable across development environments, allowing artists and developers all around the world to express their creativity.
With OPPO joining the O3DF community, the development of O3DE capabilities and features tailored for mobile devices will go more quickly, enabling the usage of cutting-edge computer graphics features like ray tracing in more mobile applications. The ColorOS Ray Tracing 3D Wallpaper was unveiled by OPPO at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) in March of this year, successfully bringing interactive ray tracing applications to smartphones for the first time. By tilting their smartphone, users can see in real time as digital light interacts with virtual environments to produce shadows, reflections, and other convincing light effects.
Through the O3DF and other programmes, OPPO will keep collaborating with partners and developers to find more Inspiration Ahead. By increasing access to technology, more people will be able to live smarter lives.
