I’ve also added the community ocean and weather system to the list (thanks DotcCam + friends)

another free terrain editor L3DT 11.11 (standard edition is free), relatively easy to use: Download L3DT Standard Edition
you can export heightmap and textures (colormap, normalmap, a few different lightmaps, a set of alpha maps for multitexturing to be used as blendmaps) with the max resolution of 2048x2048 in the free edition. it is possible to set climates and materials to get good results. manual editing in 3d is also supported.

Houdini realesed a non-commersial version:
I checked the possibility for FBX export and it says filmbox-fbx, which I dont know what is yet.

Houdini Apprentice includes a wide range of file formats including FBX import** [but no export]** and ALEMBIC import [but no export]

Here is my list of resources:

I’ll have a dig through your list and add some new blocks to this page! Already saw some good stuff in there!

So filmbox-FBX is the same as FBX?

Yes , this a Autodesk file format :smiley:

Thanks, I’ve added it to the list. looking at the comparison chart on their site FBX is import only but it looks like it might be possible to export to .OBJ

Please do! Also, if you have any free resources on your list that aren’t mentioned here then please share :slight_smile:


I’ve stickied this to the top of Content Creation so everyone can find it more easily. :slight_smile:

Awesome list and some cool stuff in here I need to try!

Thanks for starting this thread.

Thanks Tim!! :slight_smile:

hi ULLS,

had a thought, have you considered adding free desktop video recording software to the list?, recording gameplay/tutorials…ect is an integral part of developing games.

just an idea:)

Hi Smokey, I didn’t really consider screen capture software as game play footage can of course be captured with matinee, however if you feel it would be beneficial to the community then please add to the list. :slight_smile:
