Core features

Vizard is everything you need to build complete, interactive 3D content. Designed for rapid prototyping, Vizard gets you creating fast, and provides the resources to deploy even the most challenging applications.


Performance Kept Simple

Vizard abstracts the field of 3D computer graphics and places it in your hands through a simple scripting language called Python. You'll quickly see how powerful this interface between technologies is and what it enables you to build very quickly.

Immersive Virtual Reality

Vizard supports a wide variety of head-mounted displays, LCD shutter glasses, and several other specialty display technologies such as dome projectors and auto-stereoscopes. Most commercially available tracking devices are supported in Vizard. Vizard also supports numerous other devices such as gloves, haptic displays, force-feedback systems, and gamepads/joysticks. There is even built-in support for high-quality 3D sound and multi-user networking. Industry standard 3D formats are supported to provide you with immediate access to large 3D databases.

Solid Workflow

Vizard uses Python to create interactive VR environments. Python is an interpreted scripting language, which means you can make a change to your world and then instantly see the effect because you never need to recompile. And since Python is one of the most popular scripting languages, there are many 3rd party libraries available to add additional functionality.


Vizard imports industry standard 3D model formats as well as most standard image formats, letting you immediately leverage existing content or easily import new. An exporter is available for 3D Studio Max making it possibly to tailor visual qualities for your needs.
