Shader Maker is a simple, cross-platform GLSL editor. It provides the basics of a shader editor, such that students can get started with writing their own shaders as quickly as possible. This includes syntax highlighting in the GLSL editors, a geometry shader editor (as well as vertex and fragment shader editors, of course), interactive editing of the uniform variables, light source parameters, pre-defined simple shapes and a simple OBJ loader, and a few more.
XELand generates night landscapes as stereo pairs for cross-eye viewing. Currently it uses two map generation methods (plus some variations). Generated height maps are seamless and can be saved as PNG images. The program requires only JDK 1.5 or above, and is very easy to use. To take full advantage of XEland you should learn cross-eye viewing.
RenderDotC (RDC) is a photorealistic rendering toolkit which adheres to the RenderMan(R) standard. Using the Reyes architecture, RDC supports advanced capabilities such as motion blur, depth of field, trim curves, texture/environment/displacement mapping, and programmable shading in the RenderMan Shading Language. The shader compiler included in the toolkit compiles shaders all the way to machine language for the highest possible performance.
LiquidMaya is a Maya to Renderman plug-in that handles full Renderman output support with a focus on speed, efficiency, and extensibility. Its features include procedural rib generation, full network rendering support, segmented rib files, a shader assignment interface, and much more. Along with the ability to write full C++ plug-ins, it is incredibly easy to script Liquid with Mel. Liquid was used for the visual effects of the "Lord of the Rings" movie.
Fountain 3D is a little J2ME toy and a technology demo for a custom-made 3D wireframe engine with some benchmarking abilities thrown in. The camera is fully controllable by the user together with the simple particle simulation. The software doesn't require hardware acceleration; all J2ME compliant mobiles are supported.
Balazar is a 3D adventure and roleplaying game which is the sequel to Arkanae. In the game's story, although the three Gods that created the world have been safely imprisoned in the magical crystal of Arkanae, new scepters have been reforged, giving birth to new Gods. The player must find the scepters and imprison the Gods in the Arkanae or free them forever by dropping the scepters in the Abyss. You'll have to find your way through the 7 worlds: the Echassian village, the Pompon forest, the great cathedral, the ice desert, the Arkanae citadel, the Abyss swamp and finally the Elven Forge.
