Just as a question, is it possible for indie developers to market games created with this?

@Av7xrocker97 i guess only if you bought this engine, check their EULA on their website

I've downloaded the engine two days ago and I spent all my week-end on it !
Seems really powerfull, good scripting and I appreciate the link to 3dvia warehouse where samples, models and templates are available.

It's a free engine, you still need a modeling package like Maya or max to create all the assets.

As DonB told, the users can use the 3DVIA models easily in their samples (you'll need a 3dvia account I guess) and there's some simple default assets in the libraries of the soft.

Generally speaking, 3DVIA Studio is a development environment, it's like visual studio but with a wysiwyg approach to create 3D interactive applications or experiences. It is similar to what 3DVIA Virtools provides but toward larger projects & more a "developer" audience. The idea is to import 3D model and to create "behaviors" (which basically code) inside Studio using either a visual (schematic) or text based (vsl) scripting language. All these new items - models+behaviors / behaviors - are publishable on and/or reusable from 3dvia.com

For the rendering capabilities of Studio, you can use it to import 3D assets coming from all DCC tools (such as 3DS Max, Maya, 3DVIA Shape, ...) and then change some of their parameters.
