Some time ago we talked about Atangeo Balancer Lite, the free version of Atangeo Balancer. Now, the 1.0 version of Atangeo Balancer is finally out.
It is a very easy to use application that will help you to optimize your 3D models in Wavefront OBJ file format, that most modeling suites use.
It preserves all the textures and other info of the optimized models.
Balancer Lite is a free version. It is fully functional but works with small meshes only (the limits for a single mesh are 15000 triangles and 10000 vertices).
Balancer 1.0 has a very affordable price. Just $52 for a commercial license, and $26 for a non-commercial. Read more here.
Balancer utilizes a high quality polygon reduction (aka mesh simplification or decimation) to preserve the visual appearance of your model. The model features, normals, texture coordinates, layer boundaries are all honored by Balancer.
It can optimize your models even further to dramatically speed up rendering of your models.
Balancer features a fast and efficient triangle reordering that can be tuned for various rendering methods like triangle strips and array/buffer based rendering."
