In case you are a game or a graphic designer, 3D rendering and modeling software is fundamental element for your existence. It is even better if you run Linux. This open source framework provides plenty of fresh software that improve your design experience giving way to the development of some thought inciting products.
This software package is useful in 3D modeling, ray tracing, texturing as well as rendering computer produced animations (movies) or imagery stills. Art of illusion can model and render photorealistic animations and images; as well, it supports non-photorealistic rendering.
This open source and free 3D computer graphic software product is useful in creating visual effects, animated films, video games, interactive 3D applications and printed 3D models. Blender features include UV unwrapping, 3Dmodeling, texturing, particle simulation, sculpting, raster graphic editing, smoke and fluid simulation, skinning and rigging, match moving, animating, soft body simulation, rendering, camera tracking, video composing and editing.
This 3D modeling and animation application is free. This is never a KDE software, as the name may suggest and utilizes GTK+ toolkit through gtkmm. K-3D incorporates plug-in- focused routine in all its content. It supports polygonal models and includes fundamental tools useful in patches, NURBS, animation and curves.
POV-Ray or Vision Raytracer functions like ray tracing application that generates pictures from text-based scenario description. It is accessible in various computer platforms.
This suite of utilities is useful in carrying out lighting simulation. Radiance incorporates renderer and various other tools useful in evaluating the levels of the simulated light. It employs ray tracing in performing the various lighting calculations propelled by utilization of data structure from octree.
This open source and free ray tracing application uses XML scene depiction language. YafaRay is integrated in 2.49 version for the 3D modeling application Blender but requires exporter for redesigned version 2.5 of Blender. There exists an addon for integrating it to Blender 2.67.
This open source and worldwide lighting rendering system is developed in Java.
