Whether you're coming to this as an iPhone developer or as a Blender artist, this book is for you. Learn how to create 3D content using Blender's WYSIWYG approach, find helpful information on Xcode and other iPhone SDK topics, master physical collisions, and acquire the skills you need to bridge both worlds with fun, compelling content.

  • Shows you what you need to know to use Blender software, the SI02 game engine, and iPhone SDK to create interactive 3D content for the iPhone and iPod Touch
  • Walks you through a series of tutorials that you can use as starting points for your own creations
  • Provides enough information on the iPhone software developer kit (SDK) to get you started quickly
  • Covers Blender's physics simulation library, Bullet, and Blender's robust collision functionality
  • Bridge the exciting worlds of Blender and iPhone app development in an easy-to-follow pipeline with this one-of-a-kind guide.

Learn to create 3D animated characters, game environments, and particle collisions to include inside your own game on the iPhone and iPod Touch using the open-source Blender and SIO2 game engine. 3D for iPhone Apps with Blender and SIO2 takes a narrow but deep approach for Mac users to carry out the tutorials on their own and create 3D content using the iPhone SDK. Whether you're an iPhone application developer wanting to create 3D content, or a Blender artist wanting to create a 3D game on the iPhone, this book is for you. It focuses on conveying just enough background information on Xcode and other iPhone SDK-specific material, and introduces the necessary concepts as they are needed to complete tutorials creating 3D interactive content. The book is the perfect bridge to iPhone development for people who are mainly interested in 3D. This book offers a pipeline for creating 3D assets for the iPhone and iPod Touch in a WYSIWYG manner using Blender, which can significantly simplify the creation of 3D interactive content. Use of Blender's physics simulation library, Bullet, is also enabled by this pipeline, giving users relatively easy access to advanced physics and collision functionality.
