ShiVa Editor is part of the ShiVa3D solution designed to create 3D games and application in a fraction of the usual time.
The WYSIWYG editing software is the glue between artists and developers providing a fast cross-platform production pipeline.
In the editor import your assets from 3ds Max, Maya or XSI, your textures, sounds and movies, configure the materials, particles, trail, terrain, ocean and much more using the WYSIYWG Editor.
You can create artificial intelligence using the built-in LUA Script Editor or directly in C++ and export as a single STK file for the ShiVa Authoring Tool.

ShiVa Editor Modules
ShiVa, like the eponymous Hindu God, is a shape-shifter. It transforms your assets into 3D real-time applications using its multiple arms, known as modules.
There is a module for each major function, with 21 in total that allows you to create your own innovative interface, selecting only the modules you need for a specific task.
The ShiVa editor has an interface oriented towards production, and is a “What you see is what you play” (WYSIWYP) tool with built-in advanced functions, such as the Performance Reporter that tracks all engine calls and memory leaks.

With the ShiVa Editor
you only need one piece of software to do everything.
ShiVa scripting is based upon an optimized version of Lua, allowing you to create complex behavior. You can also code directly in C, C++ and Objective-C using your favorite development tool.

- Auto suggestion and auto-completion
- Syntax highlighting
- Code folding
- Integrated help (F1 on function)
- Display properties for run-in-editor modification
