MagicLight - a free modeler and renderer
I am developing a free modeler/renderer for Windows and Linux/UNIX , it is
still in a pre-alpha stage, but the modeler is already usefull even though a
lot of stuff is still missing, there is also a simple raytracer included.
At the moment it supports box, sphere, pyramid, cylinder/pipe, polygons, 3D
text, nurb curves, nurb surfaces, free form deformations, boolean operations
and then some. Support for animation and other stuff will also be available,
a powerfull scripting language will be included (Python).
Export to povray, rib, VRML and so on will be supported, also
some import functionality will be available (3DS and so on).
MagicLight is based an a flexible plugin concept, all available shapes,
light sources, textures and so on are implemented as
plugins (shared libraries), so that anyone can add new featues to it.
At the moment I am alone on this project and any help with testing or
development are welcome. I need all the help I can get, this is a huge
