Introducing Simplygon Video:

Our best-in-class software is now 100% free (no royalties) for all developers.

When it comes to creating 3D art assets, one of the biggest challenges facing digital content creators is time-consuming optimization work. In addition to causing bottlenecks in production workflow, 3D asset production can account for 30-70% of a gaming project's entire budget. This pain point also applies to enterprise companies looking to utilize their 3D assets on AR/VR devices.

The technology and workflow from Simplygon empowers producers, artists, developers, and 3D specialists to work together to create the highest-quality 3D experiences possible, for any platform, without manual drudgery or costly code. With automated 3D optimization, the Simplygon product helps digital content creators accelerate processing time to save important resources.

Technical Details

Skeletal mesh LOD: Automatically generate LOD chains for your characters or other skeletal meshes.

Static mesh LOD: Create perfect LODs for your static meshes with minimal manual labor.

Actor merging : Use high resolution meshes when kit bashing and have Simplygon generate a cheap representation mesh. This takes away the need to create specific assets for background geometry and allows you to use dense meshes when building mobile games.

HLOD proxies: Simplygon hooks into the HLOD system and generates cheap representation meshes for your clusters. This not only reduces the draw calls but also drastically cuts down on the amount of polygons in the clusters.

Level stream LOD: Generate a high quality proxy for a whole level, allowing you to create large worlds while far away geometry is significantly reduced in both draw calls and poly count.
