Genesis FX for Java 3D

System for Games and Simulations Built to Support Java 3D

indie technologies has announced the availability of Genesis FX 1.0. Genesis FX is built from the ground up to support Java 3D. Genesis FX offers infinite particle possibilities. Pixels are a big favorite and every particle system has them, including Genesis FX. Developers can motion blur those pixels to give them an added sense of motion or even use their own Java 3D shapes.

Any Java 3D shape or group can be used as a particle. This flexibility of Genesis FX provides unlimited particle possibilities. Built with state of the art procedural techniques, Genesis FX particle system can create clouds, flames, smoke and even an animated tornado. These textures are uniquely generated based on the detail level developers specify.

For world class 3D game special effects, Genesis FX includes:
  • A fast learning curve for Java developers
  • Infinite particle possibilities
  • State of the art procedural clouds, smoke and flames
  • Life-like motion and collisions
  • Well documented extensible design

CloudEXPO Stories
"Calligo is a cloud service provider with data privacy at the heart of what we do. We are a typical Infrastructure as a Service cloud provider but it's been designed around data privacy," explained Julian Box, CEO and co-founder of Calligo, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. SD-WAN helps enterprises to take advantage of the exploding landscape of cloud applications and services, due to its unique capability to support all things cloud related.
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when. The cloud environment has proved to be a major force in transitioning to an agile business model that enables quick decisions and fast implementation that solidify customer relationships. And when the cloud is combined with the power of cognitive computing, it drives innovation and transformation that achieves astounding competitive advantage.
