VOGLE 1.1 and VORT 1.1

VOGLE 1.1 and VORT 1.1

Post by Eric H. Echid » Tue, 10 Apr 1990 15:19:13



VOGLE 1.1 and VORT 1.1 are now available for anonymous ftp from
munnari.OZ.AU (128.250.1.21) in pub/graphics. These supersede
the 1.0 releases that are listed in the Sun Academic Software
Portfolio and the Sun User Group tape.

VOGLE is a device independent 3D graphics package. Differences from
the previous release are as follows:
        More PC drivers.
        The Sun, X11, and Apollo drivers are much improved.
        Support for polygon backfacing.
        Double buffering.
        Support for positioning and sizing of graphics windows where
        it is possible.
        Support for a world up vector.
        Miscellaneous speed ups and bug fixes.

VORT is a rendering toolkit for doing Constructive Solid Geometry and
algebraic surfaces. Display programs are included for the Sun, Apollo,
Iris, X11, and VGA. Differences from the previous release are as
follows:
        Quadrics, superquadrics, torii, and boxes no longer need to be
        axis-aligned.
        Procedural texturing (marble, wood, etc) has been added.
        Other pixel files can now be mapped onto all primitives
        except polygon models, arbitrary algebraic surfaces, and boxes.
        Some simple tools are also provided for generating and displaying
        short animations.

Both packages are public domain, although, as with previous releases, beer
will always be accepted.

Regards,

Eric.

These both sound like a lot of fun (and very instructional).  Is there any
chance they will ever be posted (say to comp.sources.unix or comp.sources.misc)
for the many thousands of us who don't have ftp access?

Assume that there are at least 40 or so other "yeah, post it" and "me too"
articles :-)

They are available from uunet in the directory ~ftp/tmp/VOGLE.

1. VORT 1.1 patch

There is a memory leak in the ray tracer art, which can cause the
ray tracer to chew up swap space, or worse still, run out of memory
(needless to say this first showed up on a PC). The patch is attached
below.

Many thanks to the person (Alberto) who reported this.

Usual apologies from the person (idiot) who wrote it.

Eric.
