About

Mostly composed of motor vehicles enthusiasts, Aptitude X since 2015 is exclusively dedicated to the creation of 3D vehicles and motorsports assets. From 2D/3D artists to producers, our team is exclusively composed of passionate or experimented people from the automotive and motorsports worlds. We cover all aspects of the 3D vehicles creation, from the concept arts to the manufacturer approval process of licensed vehicles.

What we do

Realistic Cars

Our team is building AAA quality vehicles for any Mobile/PC/Game Consoles game. Those cars featured highly optimized geometries, mobile dedicated shaders and lower geometry levels of details.

Fully detailed Interiors

Depending of the project, we create fully detailed interiors and engines compartments. The interiors generally have 2 swappable levels of details, some animated parts and an animated driver characters.

GT & Rally Cars

The GT Racing and Rally cars vehicles we create for games generally feature a geometry of about 100k triangles with 2 to 4 lower levels of detail. They also feature interiors as well as car body dirt and damages shaders.

Concepts

Even if most of our 3D production is based on licensed models, we also create concept artworks for fantasy vehicles or realistic original vehicles.

Animations and customization

Our team can create animated and interactive parts such as doors, suspensions, steering wheels, hoods, car trunks or retractable roof tops. We also provide to game developers customization items like car stickers and alternative body parts.

Manufacturer approval

We have developed an expertise in assisting our partners to get approval for their licensed vehicles by providing the documentation needed by the manufacturers.
