Fraqtive is a multi-platform generator of the Mandelbrot family fractals. It uses very fast algorithms that support SSE2 and multi-core processors. It generates high quality anti-aliased images and renders 3D scenes using OpenGL. It allows real-time navigation and dynamic generation of the Julia fractal preview.
KIO-POV is a KDE IO-Slave for the Persistence of Vision Raytracer (POV-Ray). It can be used to render POV-Ray scenes and access the render results from Konqueror or other KDE programs without fiddling with the command line. Viewing render logs, scene information, and information about the POV- Ray configuration is possible as well.
QuesoGLC is a free implementation of the OpenGL Character Renderer. The OpenGL Character Renderer (GLC) is a state machine that provides OpenGL programs with character rendering services including scale and rotate text and draw text using lines, filled triangles, or bitmaps. QuesoGLC is based on the FreeType library, provides Unicode support, and is designed to be easily ported to any platform that supports both FreeType and the OpenGL API.
DirectX support for Wine is a set of patches against Wine to implement DirectX 9. It allows modern games and 3D applications to run under Wine. The patches include many experimental and beta features that have not yet made it into the stable Wine source tree. The aim of the project is to provide full support for DirectX 8 and 9 so that all games and 3D applications will run on Linux or any other platform that Wine supports.
KStereoScope is a simple OpenGL quad-buffered stereoscopic image viewer for KDE. Currently it does nothing but display 3D images (JPS/PNS) that are viewable only with LCD shutter glasses and a professional video card. Future releases will include support for anaglyphs and interleaved images.
Garbure is a collection of dedicated distributions. Each distribution provides carefully selected tools for a specific target domain, and is completed with examples and documentation. The set of distributions forms an entity, but each distribution works also on its own. All elements are arranged in the same way for each distribution.
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.
Octaviz is a visualization system for Octave. It is a wrapper that makes all VTK classes accessible from within Octave using the same object-oriented syntax as in C++ or Python. It also provides high-level functions for 2D and 3D visualization. Using those functions, most common visualization tasks (3D surface plots, contour plots, meshes, etc.) can be accomplished without any knowledge about VTK.
GL2PS is a C library providing high quality vector output for any OpenGL application. It uses sorting algorithms capable of handling intersecting and stretched polygons, as well as non manifold objects. It provides advanced smooth shading and text rendering, culling of invisible primitives, mixed vector/bitmap output, and much more. It can currently create PostScript (PS), Encapsulated PostScript (EPS), Portable Document Format (PDF), and Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) files, as well as LaTeX files for the text fragments.
Aviascene is a virtual environment for remote exploration. Users can download actual earth topography and surface data from USGS, then go exploring. If they get lost, they can launch an aircraft to reconnoiter. It features a high- performance adaptive OpenGL terrain renderer, airplane and wheeled vehicle physics models, and the ability to mark waypoints at GPS coordinates. It can be used to plan a backpacking trip or just as a flight simulator.
