Fury3d is a cross-platform rendering engine written in c++11 and modern opengl.

Works on windows && osx operating systems currentlly.

Please note, this is just a simple project for study purpose.


  • Use modern opengl.
  • C++11 smart pointers made memory management easier.
  • Flexible signal message system. (use function pointers, so it won't accept lambdas, sry)
  • Support fbx model format, you can load static meshes, skinned meshes and lights directlly.
  • Easy rendering pipeline management through json serialization functionality.
  • Build-in light-pre pass rendering pipeling.
  • Intergates powerful gui library ImGui.
  • Support Shadow Mapping For Dir/Point/Spot Light.
  • Support custom scene format, can save to json and can be compressed.


  • Add shadow maps. (Done, need improvements)
  • Add skeleton animation support. (Done, but need improvements)


Tested compilers:

  • MSVC 2013 Community
  • Apple LLVM version 7.0.2 (clang-700.1.81)

Because fbxsdk only offers MSVC builds on windows (FBXSDK is optional, you can load scene using engine's custom scene format), so you must use MSVC to build the library.

Should work with any graphic card that supports opengl 3.3 +





You can setup custom rendering pipeline using json file, check it out.

A simple demo should look like this:

// This is the root of our scene
auto m_RootNode = SceneNode::Create("Root");

// You can load scene from fbx file.
FbxParser::Instance()->LoadScene("Resource/Scene/scene.fbx", m_RootNode, importOptions);

// Or from fury's scene format.
FileUtil::LoadCompressedFile(m_Scene, FileUtil::GetAbsPath("Resource/Scene/scene.bin"));

// You can iterate a certain type of imported resources.
Scene::Manager()->ForEach<AnimationClip>([&](const AnimationClip::Ptr &clip) -> bool
    std::cout << "Clip: " << clip->GetName() << " Duration: " << clip->GetDuration() << std::endl;
    return true;

// And you can simply find an resource by it's name or hashcode.
auto clip = Scene::Manager()->Get<AnimationClip>("James|Walk");

// Setup octree
auto m_OcTree = OcTree::Create(Vector4(-10000, -10000, -10000, 1), Vector4(10000, 10000, 10000, 1), 2);

// Load pipeline
auto m_Pipeline = PrelightPipeline::Create("pipeline");
FileUtil::LoadFile(m_Pipeline, FileUtil::GetAbsPath("Path To Pipeline.json"));

// Draw scene

One more thing

If you use sublimetext, you can try my GLSLCompiler plugin to debug glsl code :D
