Amazon announced Sumerian at AWS re:Invent 2017 but today announced its availability to developers. Sumerian is a web-based visual editor that allows creators to develop 2D, 3D, and VR experiences without having to master specialized tools.
Experiences can be deployed across multiple platforms without having to write custom code or worry about deployment systems.
From the announcement:
I’m happy to announce that Sumerian is now generally available. You can create realistic virtual environments and scenes without having to acquire or master specialized tools for 3D modeling, animation, lighting, audio editing, or programming. Once built, you can deploy your finished creation across multiple platforms without having to write custom code or deal with specialized deployment systems and processes.
Sumerian gives you a web-based editor that you can use to quickly and easily create realistic, professional-quality scenes. There’s a visual scripting tool that lets you build logic to control how objects and characters (Sumerian Hosts) respond to user actions. Sumerian also lets you create rich, natural interactions powered by AWS services such as Amazon Lex, Polly, AWS Lambda, AWS IoT, and Amazon DynamoDB.
