Writing 3D content creation tools in Metal

Hi there!

Really enjoying the book so far. I was wondering: Will part of a later tutorial involve camera control? Manipulation? I’d really love to make content creation tools using Metal and to have more of a grounding in how to make manipulator handles and interact with scene objects, for example.

It feels like something where the book reader is guided towards making an extremely simple “editor” would be a great bit of information and is not something I’ve seen anywhere else for any graphics framework.

Btw, the link to the discussion forum from the product download page is broken.


Hi @kikiwunder - in Chapter 9 you move around the scene using the keyboard, but not with mouse input. You have a great idea, although space will probably not permit us to add it.

And thanks for letting us know about the broken link :smiley:
