Blender is a 3D creation suite with tools for modeling (advanced subdivision modeling, multiresolution sculpting), uv unwrapping, texturing (procedural node, 2D and 3D painting), animation, rendering, particles and simulation (including fluid dynamics, hard body physics, cloth and hair)
... [More], post-production with node based compositing and non linear editing, integrated game engine (with graphical programming, vehicle and rag doll constraints) and python scripting including an import and export suite.
Blender runs on all major operating systems including Windows, OS X, Linux.
The project is being facilitated by the public-benefit corporation Blender Foundation, established in the Netherlands. [Less]
Moonlight|3D is a free modern, flexible and extensible modelling and animation tool developed by a small but dedicated team. The goal is to provide a tool that is capable of turning even the most advanced and challenging projects of artists and technical artists into reality.
We understand that
... [More] this project is by its very nature a huge undertaking. We have chosen to make clean design, good usability and solid implementation of features our highest priority goals and we have already successfully, albeit slowly, pursued that road for several years.
In order to speed up the progress of our development efforts we open up the project to the general public and we hope to attract the support of many developers and users, bringing the project forward faster. [Less]
This is an OpenGL based 3D model editor that works with triangle-based models. It supports multi-level undo, skeletal animations, simple texturing, scripting, command-line batch processing, and a plugin system for adding new model and image filters. Complete online help is included. It is designed
... [More] to be easy to use and easy to extend with plugins and scripts.
It supports the following 3d files: MilkShape (ms3d), Wavefront (obj), LightWave 3d Object (lwo), Quake 2 model (md2), Quake 3 model (md3), Caligari trueSpace (cob), and AutoCAD (dxf). [Less]
This is an interactive generative art application to evolve
images/textures/patterns/animations through an iterative process of random mutation and user-selection driven evolution. This process is also often referred to as "evolutionary art" or "genetic art". If you like lava lamps, and still
... [More] think the Mandelbrot set is cool, this could be the software for you. [Less]
