FreeJ is a vision mixer: an instrument for realtime video manipulation used in the fields of dance and theater performance, veejaying, medical visualization, and TV. With FreeJ, multiple layers can be filtered through effect chains and then mixed together. The supported layer inputs are images, movies, live cameras, particle generators, text scrollers, and more. The resulting video mix can be shown on multiple and remote screens, encoded into a movie, and streamed live to the Internet. FreeJ can be controlled locally or remotely from multiple places at the same time, using a slick console interface. It can be automated via JavaScript and operated via MIDI and joystick.

Evolvotron is an interactive "generative art" application to evolve images/textures/patterns through an iterative process of random mutation and user-selection driven evolution. If you like lava lamps, and never got tired of the Mandelbrot set, this could be the software for you. It's implemented using Qt, and is multithreaded.

Gnofract 4D is a Gnome-based program to draw fractals. What sets it apart from other fractal programs (and makes it "4D") is the way that it treats the Mandelbrot and Julia sets as different views of the same four-dimensional fractal object. It contains a Fractint-compatible formula compiler, allowing it to draw an unlimited number of fractal types, using numerous coloring options.

Papyrus is a 2D C++ scenegraph (canvas) library that utilizes the cairo library to perform drawing operations. Similar canvas libraries are the Gnome Canvas, Diacanvas, and the QT Canvas. Numerous canvas primitives are available, including arcs, rectangles, polylines, and line markers. An optional companion library, Papyrusmm, provides a set of Gtkmm widgets which includes viewports (a canvas display widget similar to Gtk::DrawingArea) and other UI widgets related to drawing interfaces.

Kandid is a system to evolve graphics. Graphics, in Kandid, are not drawn by hand. Instead, new forms can be found using genetic algorithms. To achieve this aim Kandid simulates evolution using sexual reproduction and mutation. But there is no fitness function inside the program. Only the user can decide what images are interesting. Populations and genes can be stored in XML format. Image calculation is based on Lisp-like expressions, Lindenmayer Systems, Iterated Function Systems, Linear Cellular Automata, Voroni diagrams, and layered textures or isosurfaces rendered by the Persistence of Vision raytracer.

EZFB is a polymorphic, object oriented Linux frame buffer API written in C, designed to adapt at run time to control any properly configured Linux frame buffer video system. It offers independent, simultaneous control of multiple video cards within a single system, exceptional control of colors, the ability to display all or portions of bitmap files anywhere on the screen, automatic color depth conversion, the ability to capture to bitmap files, an 8x8 bitmapped font, routines to draw points, lines, outlined and filled rectangles, signal trapping for automatic screen clean-up at process termination, and much more. The demonstration applications include a bitmap viewer, screen capture utility, screen saver, and a touch screen calibration utility and an application for generating, viewing, transforming, and saving files according to The International Laser Display Association's ILDA file format.

alph implements and analyzes historical and traditional ciphers and codes, such as polyalphabetic, substitutional, and mixed employing human-reconstructable algorithms. It provides a pipe filter interface in order to encrypt and decrypt block text to achieve transparency. The program is meant to be used in conjunction with external programs that transfer data, resulting in transparent encryption or decryption of information. The program can thus be used as a mail filter, IRC filter, IM filter, and so on.

WaveSurfer is a sound visualization/manipulation tool for novice and advanced users, with a simple and intuitive user interface. It can be adapted to different tasks, such as speech research and education, speech/sound analysis, and sound annotation/transcription. You can also make more advanced/specialized applications by extending it with custom plugins or embed WaveSurfer components in other applications. Its flexible interface handles many different file formats, and it runs on many flavors of Windows and Unix. It also supports encoding and Unicode with unlimited file size, and more.
