Functy is a 3D graph drawing package that generates immediate results.
Note: The Functy and libsymbolic code has now moved to GitLab: https://gitlab.com/flypig/functy https://gitlab.com/flypig/libsymbolic This project has been left here for archival purposes. Functy is a 3D graph drawing package. It allows Cartesian, spherical and parametric curve functions to be plotted and altered quickly and easily. This immediacy and the vivid results promote fun exploration of 3D function. Rendering is performed entirely on the GPU to improve visuals and performance. Ubuntu functy PPA: https://launchpad.net/~flypig/+archive/ubuntu/ppa
GLC_lib is a C++ library for high performance 3D application based on OpenGL and QT4 GUI. Some GLC_lib features : Supported file format : 3DS, OBJ, COLLADA, 3DXML, OFF, STL. Easy view manipulation, Level of detail, shaders...
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.
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.
GLFFmpeg uses the video recording functionality provided by the FFmpeg library to capture content generated using OpenGL. The cross-platform library provides a minimalistic set of API to simplify the task of capturing OpenGL output to a video stream. GNU Lesser General Public License version 2.1 (LGPLv2.1)
Preparation of GPS routes and analysis of GPS logs in the context of outdoor sports (biking, skiing, trecking, gliding, geocaching, mountaineering). Our hope is to have a multi platform, multi GPS file and map format software.
A 3d rendering framework
x3d render library is a 3d graphics framework with implementation of several useful rendering algorithms: a rasterization renderer(with implementation of both builtin software rendering & opengl hardware rendering); a path tracing renderer(cpu based) x3d demoscene is a framework and tool chains dedicated in animation production. x3d render library is used for the rendering component
PHIGS (Programmer's Hierarchical Interactive Graphics System)
PHIGS is an API standard for rendering 3D computer graphics. During the 1990's OpenGL became a more popular 3D API for professionals, and it still is today. PHIGS remains to be widely used in the film industry. Open PHIGS uses OpenGL for rendering graphics rather than implementing it's own abstraction layer to the graphics hardware, or using the PHIGS Extension to X (PEX). The reason for doing so is that today every graphics card manufacturer provides their own OpenGL implementation, which takes full advantage of the accelerated drawing capabilities in the hardware. PHIGS is a higher level API than OpenGL that works with a hierarchical scene graph. Models are built up in a Centralized Structure Store (CSS), a database containing the drawing primitives and their attributes (color, line style, etc.). CSSes cand be shared among a number of views, known under PHIGS as a workstation. PHIGS is defined by the ISO standards ISO/IEC 9592 & 9593. Open PHIGS provides a library for C.
XISL (XML based scripting of Implicit Surfaces) package (written in C++) assists developers in construction of arbitrary implicit models. Each implicit function class (a primitive, an operation, etc.) is defﬁned by its appropriate XISL tag(s).
This Minimal OpenGL Utility Library is a library similar to GLUT, only with fewer features! You can write window-system-independent OpenGL programs with even fewer lines of code than GLUT. Initial support for X11 and Win32. Examples.
Free vector,quaternion,matrix math library
Over 75 C++ function for working with vectors, matrix and quaternions. Inside the package there is no cycles, if's, classes or structures. Ideal for designing 3D engines. Headlines of functions are intuitive. For each headline there is a one line comment in Russian. Matrix are presented in OpenGL form 0 4 8 12 1 5 9 13 2 6 10 14 3 7 11 15 Now we are working on adding 50+ more functions for processing the planes, splines, bezier curves and interpolation methods.
