Highly accurate ray-tracing software system for UNIX computers
Radiance is a free, highly accurate ray-tracing software system for UNIX computers. It is a suite of programs designed for the analysis and visualization of lighting in design. Radiance is superior to simpler lighting calculation and rendering tools in that there are no limitations on the geometry or the materials that may be simulated. Scene geometry, materials, luminaires, time, date and sky conditions (for daylight calculations) are specified; spectral radiance (ie. luminance + color), irradiance (illuminance + color) and glare indices are calculated. Simulation results may be displayed as color images, numerical values and contour plots. Radiance is useful for architects and engineers in predicting illumination, visual quality and appearance of innovative design spaces; and for researchers in evaluating new lighting and daylighting technologies.
A framework for distributed computing
An extensible framework for distributed computing on P2P grids. We support peaceful free and open research and build an internet supercomputer. We render movies, solve Eternity puzzles, predict climate and improve a ~30 GHz cluster of clients.
rayshade and POV for Mathematica Export + view
Beautifully Render* your Graphic3D and Shown or Manipulate right in the Front End (without Export to, ie 3DStudio Art Renderer, et al). For use with Mathematica 4.0 - 11.0. Makes file.ray or .pov that will look much like image in notebook except rendered. Works easily/automatically with many Graphics3D (and some Graphic) as well. However 11.0 is too big to comment on: many will work many not. Has many options to fix renders that aren't so auto. Now very portable (Apple, Microsoft, Linux) supported (given rayshade or povray binary download or compiled). No OS scripting needed. * raytracing makes more realistic images than GL/CL/Cuda (are best for game, geo/mapping, accelerated) but is slower. POVRay is supported about as well. For a .gif animation see: http://community.wolfram.com/groups/-/m/t/1096001 see also: https://sourceforge.net/p/rayshade http://www.povray.org
Stereo 3D wireframe projection of 4D objects. Rotations about the 6 planes of various 4D(R4) objects in Java. Uses documented file format for the 4D objects. Supports alternating lcd shutter 3D glasses and the red-blue 3D glasses. No 3D monitors yet. If you wish to contact me regarding this project, do. It is a joint project. Project is unchanged as of July 2007. Got hypot() and perspective wrong.
