Volocian believes first and foremost that financial status shouldn’t be a barrier to entry in multimedia content creation. Whether you want to design a product or website, record a band, remix a song, or produce a feature length movie with professional post production graphics and effects, Volocian™ wants to help, even if you’re using borrowed hardware with no previous experience. We provide affordable products and services for any budget, including cost-free solutions for education and demo purposes, while everything we do is designed with ease of use and flexibility in mind, to suit everyone from novice hobbyists to expert professionals. Wherever possible, Volocian™ relies on free, open source, and cross-platform software to prevent vendor lock-in, planned obsolescence, and software as a service licensing. While we remain pragmatic about the use of proprietary software, as we’re aware of the feature limitations of some open source solutions, free solutions are preferred.
Fast, advanced, multi-platform fractal generator
FractalNow provides users with tools to generate pictures of various types of fractals quickly and easily. It is made of both a command line tool, FractalNow, and a graphical tool, QFractalNow. The graphical tool, based on Qt library, allows users to explore fractals intuitively and generate pictures. Both tools are entirely multi-threaded and implement advanced algorithms and heuristics that make computation very fast compared to most existing free fractal generators.
Remote control for Pentax DSLR cameras.
OpenGI is a platform-independent C-library for parameterizing triangular meshes and creating Geometry Images from this parameterization.
ege(easy graphics engine)
An open desktop environment that provides a managed infrastructure for building high-scalable and portable applications to be run without a change on a variety of platforms.
This is a lightweight and fast library for reading and writing any PNM file - PBM, PGM and PPM, up to 16 bits per sample, in ascii/binary format. Library contains also a Python bindings - module pixfiles with PixFile class.
Command line image editing software package and libraries.
GIMP plug in to adjust images for panoramatic views
Adjust for Panorama is a GIMP plugin which distorts images taken as a panorama. It maps the image from the planar projection onto a cylinder. After converting a series of images, they nicely overlap each other and it is easy to compose a panoramatic view from them.
A Simple C API to load and save image file.
Output Switcher is a Windows tool by which user can switch display and sound output by an accelerator key.
Library to correct optical lens defects and lens database
Digital photographs are not ideal. Of course, the better is your camera, the better the results will be, but in any case if you look carefully at shots taken even by the most expensive cameras equipped with the most expensive lenses you will see various artifacts. It is very hard to make ideal cameras, because there are a lot of factors that affect the final image quality, and at some point camera and lens designers have to trade one factor for another to achieve the optimal image quality, within the given design restrictions and budget. But we all want ideal shots, don't we? :) So that's what's lensfun is all about - rectifying the defects introduced by your photographic equipment.
GdkPixbuf loader module for PEF camera raw image files.
4 plugins for 360 panorama editing
GIMP Plug-In set for 360° panoramas =================================== This plugin set contain 4 plugins helpful in 360° equirectangular panorama creation: * fill_zenith_nadir - fills transparent areas on the top and the bottom of the generated panorama with a gradient that smoothly connects to the neighbour pixels * panorama_to_zenith_nadir - converts panorama to editable form of zenith and nadir areas. This allows for easy editing, eg. patching, filling, placing a logo * zenith_nadir_to_panorama - converts back the editable zenith and nadir to panorama projection * set_google_plus_metadata - attach metadata needed to publish panorama on Google+
Flatland is the virtual environment for Virtual Reality.
Flatland is the virtual environment developed to perform these investigations. Using Flatland as the base environment scientists can visualize and explore both their data and the computations that manipulate that data. Imagine, if you will, a scientist able to examine the real-time results of a simulation and, when he notices an anomally he would like to investigate, he turns to the program running the simulation and examines the code, possibly changing it on the fly. This is the dream of Flatland.
Texture compression and conversion program with KTX and DDS support.
texgenpack is a texture compression and conversion program featuring a command line utility and a simple GUI program . Compression is implemented using a genetic algorithm. It supports compression, decompression, conversion and comparison of texture and image files. The image format supported is PNG, while for textures there is support for KTX, PKM and DDS using ETC1, ETC2, DXT1/3/5 or BPTC (BC7) texture compression. Several uncompressed texture format are also supported. This program requires the installation of libfgen, also avalable on SourceForge.
JPEG decompression accelerated on GPU using OpenGL compute shaders
Ogljpeg is JPEG decompression library. Primary focus of this project is to speed up texture upload process using JPEG compression. For this purpose OpenGL compute shaders are used and result of decompression is OpenGL texture loaded in GPU memory.
Not your usual Architectural Modeler
Why do Archicad and Revit only share 30 or 40% of the global architectural sofware market ? Maybe because lots of small practices find these software unadapted to the way they work, and to their bank account. I think there's place for an open software that doesn't work like the existing. It will be simple in its tools and processes, and will have infinite capabilities. This will be possible by defining a logical structure. As I am an architect, and I know very little about programming, and wouldn't reach even in 10 years the necessary level to be able to write anything useful for this type of software, my part will be to bring ideas and coherence to this project. If you want to know some more : - go to the blog https://sourceforge.net/p/mollino/blog/ - write me a message ;) I speak french, german, english and italian. Martin Lucas
A DOS framework designed for programming games.
WDMF is a collection of C libraries designed for creating games and other multimedia applications. It has mostly been designed as a project to keep the programmer occupied over several Twitch.tv streams; however, it is hoped that it may be useful to others as it is updated.
A really simple (following K.I.S.S statement) ray tracing project.
I have in mind a C RayTracing library, but, actually it is an application using opengl to show the texture (e.g. the raytraced result) generated by the library. This is a project to explore and make a Ray Tracer that can be really fast, optimized and with the more options we can. My hope is to make it fully and easily understandable in order to give to the developers all the hand in the process.
Multi-view camera description format for OpenGL visual computing
GeoCast is a data format that binds together camera information and multi-layer image sequences, such as RGBZ or RGBA representations. We use OpenEXR for image storage, and represent the camera position, rotation, and lens parameters as text files.
