WebGL Skybox Lighthouse
Slide to View the Lighthouse Scene
The lighthouse graphic was composed from a panoramic photograph, taken with an iPhone. Graphics were modified with Photoshop and 3ds Max, then rendered as cubic maps. Last, Seven Thunder Software's 3D rendering software displays the scene online.
Skyboxes represent three dimensional environments useful for
3D games, virtual worlds, and scientific visualization.
A skybox is simply a cube
wrapped with a
picture of a landscape, cityscape, or some other scene.
View from inside the cube, to experience each unique setting.
