Devkit for Windows/Visual Studio 2010

We just released the first version of the appleseed development kit, based on appleseed 1.1.0 alpha-12, for Visual Studio 2010 on 32-bit and 64-bit Windows.

Devkits allow to embed appleseed into a C++ application, for example to build a tight integration of appleseed into an authoring/modeling application.

Does this open up for the possibility of tight integration with ie. Blender? (my tool of choice) Maybe as an addon instead of only export?

Yes, it definitely opens up

Yes, it definitely opens up this possibility, although we don't have the resources to do this integration ourself.

On a side note, someone (outside the team) is currently testing this devkit "in the field" by developing a tight integration of appleseed into Maya. I can report that it's already working very nicely, with direct rendering in a Maya viewport, etc. This integration should become open source at some point, providing a great example of how to integrate appleseed in a DCC app.

Cheers,
Franz
