Jupiter Skin is a project container for several skin shaders developed by /*jupiter jazz*/.

At the moment this project features the following shaders:

  • Jupiter SGI Skin

Jupiter Spherical Gradient Illumination Skin is a 3Delight RenderMan shader that reads scanned RGB world space normal maps for 3 different wavelengths (red, green, blue), and a fourth normal map to be used in the specular term.

Aqsis is a cross-platform photorealistic 3D rendering solution, adhering to the RenderMan interface standard defined by Pixar Animation Studios.
Focusing on stability and production usage, features include constructive solid geometry, depth-of-field, extensible shading engine (DSOs), instancing, level-of-detail, motion blur, NURBS, procedural plugins, programmable shading, subdivision surfaces, subpixel displacements and more. (more…)

A RenderMan Interface-compatible display driver and Nuke plugin for direct rendering into the Nuke interface.  RmanConnect is based on a simple Client/Server model, suitable for rendering to/from a variety of applications. The TCP/IP interface code is handled using the Boost.Asio library. The display driver will theoretically build using any RenderMan-compatible renderer but the included CMake build script assumes you have 3Delight installed.

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.

The HOT is a collection of dso’s and an OTL for rendering deep ocean waves using the algorithms of Jerry Tessendorf described in the SIGGRAPH 2004 course notes. The dso’s implement a SOP for displacing geometry and VEX functions functions for use in various Houdini contexts. The OTL contains a VOP that wraps the vex function.
