EQUINOX-3D is a 3D modeler with a very fast, fully integrated ray-tracer. It features read/write support for COLLADA, read support for Radiance's .hdr image format, 3DS (3D-studio) file format read support, multi-texturing, custom-programmable texture mapping, bump-mapping with automatic texture-space tangents, the ability to zoom into a region with "fly-to", and more. It includes a full runtime-class framework and a core design that allows for the addition of anything from a physics engine to a fully integrated renderer from a plugin. It is faster and more memory efficient than many other modelers.

            Release Notes: A Mac OS X version is available. The Cg renderer was improved. A built-in code generator was added, capable of generating billions of optimized shader variations based on the UI. An unlimited number of lights with hardware-accelerated shadows is supported. HDR (high dynamic range) rendering, reflection and refraction cubemaps, and tangent-space and object-space normal maps were implemented. The "I" key sets the interest point to point on the surface under the mouse pointer. IK and construction-history were improved. (Spline) Faces are saved and restored from COLLADA files. Face holes can be deleted.
