Audio spectrum visualiser in 3D for Linux
Spectrum3d is a software for Linux that displays the harmonics of the sound in 3D, either in real-time or from a preloaded file. It is multitouch and compatible with JACK. It uses OpenGL, SDL, Gstreamer, Gtk+ and (optionally) libjack.
BuGLe combines a graphical OpenGL debugger with a selection of filters on the OpenGL command stream. The debugger allows viewing of state, textures, framebuffers and shaders, while the filters allow for logging, error checking, video capture and more.
Glide is a library for using 3dfx hardware. This project will be the public repository for Glide.
GEM (Graphics Environment for Multimedia) is a library to be used with Miller Puckette's Max-like realtime-computermusic-software "Pure Data" (Pd), which allows to draw and control openGL- and pixel-graphics (like video) in realtime from within Pd.
3D rendering and scene graph library
High-level 3D graphics library. Supports retained and immediate mode rendering, an extensible file format, plug-in renderers, a wide range of high level geometries, hierarchical models, and a consistent and object-orientated API.
surf is a tool to visualize algebraic curves and algebraic surfaces. It is written in C++. The GUI is written using the Gtk widget set.
free implementation of the OpenGL Character Renderer
QuesoGLC is a free implementation of the OpenGL Character Renderer. QuesoGLC is based on the FreeType library, provides Unicode support, and is designed to be easily ported to any platform that supports both FreeType and the OpenGL API.
CyberVRML97 for C++ is a development library of VRML97/2.0 applications. Using the library, you can read and write the VRML files, set and get the scene graph information, draw the geometries, run the behaviors easily.
SOLARIS is a graphic adventure created and developing by Blender. The game takes place in the Solaris space station, as is described in the book "Solaris" by Stanislaw Lem and Tarkovsky's film.
action/combat flight sim
Palomino was an unfinished action/combat flight simulator. Air-to-air combat mode was never implemented. However, it does have a land-on-carrier and shoot-SAMs missions. Requires OpenSceneGraph. Optional: SDL, FLTK.
2D/3D Scene Graph rendering engine for Linux/Unix/Win32 layered atop OpenGL. Supports stereoscopy, volume rendering, 2D/3D texture mapping, picking, LOD and view-dependent operations, cross-platform text, constant-rate rendering and image-based data.
