Vfxgal is a geometric algorithms library for the VFX industry. It contains a very fast and robust voronoi fracturer, as well as several other geometric algorithms (plane-clip, hull-clip etc). Vfxgal comes with Houdini11 bindings but has been written in such a way that minimal work is needed to bind to other frameworks.

Blender is an integrated application that enables the creation of a broad range of 2D and 3D content.  Blender provides a broad spectrum of modeling, texturing, lighting, animation and video post-processing functionality in one package.  Through its open architecture, Blender provides cross-platform interoperability, extensibility, a small footprint, and a tightly integrated workflow.

Aimed world-wide at media professionals and artists, Blender can be used to create 3D visualizations, stills as well as broadcast and cinema quality videos, while the incorporation of a real-time 3D engine allows for the creation of 3D interactive content for stand-alone playback.

Originally developed by the company ‘Not a Number’ (NaN), Blender now is continued as ‘Free Software’, with the source code available under the GNU GPL license. It now continues development by the Blender Foundation in the Netherlands.

GTS stands for the GNU Triangulated Surface Library. It is an Open Source Free Software Library intended to provide a set of useful functions to deal with 3D surfaces meshed with interconnected triangles.

The code is written entirely in C with an object-oriented approach based mostly on the design of GTK+. Careful attention is paid to performance related issues as the initial goal of GTS is to provide a simple and efficient library to scientists dealing with 3D computational surface meshes. (more…)
