Question Available 3D Rendering Packages


We have migrated our application from SCO/Unix to Linux. We would like to add 3D Rendering to our application, however being new to the Linux World we do not know what 3D Rendering Packages would work best with Fedora and Unbuntu.

If you are looking for commercial packages, Maya is available for Linux in 32 and 64 bit versions.

http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet...112&id=7639522

Autodesk is notoriously anti Unix and Linux, almost as much so as MS, but seeing as some of the largest users of Maya run it under Linux they will most likely continue to support it under Linux.

What do you mean by rendering? The actual renderer used in render farms, a modelling interface, an integrated modeller/renderer etc...

Please be more specific.

3Delight is a commercial Renderman compliant 3d renderer. Aqsis, Yafray and RenderPixie all mentioned above are also Renderman compliant. Of course there is Renderman itself, although that would probably be overkill.

EDIT Another free but not (presently) GPL 3d renderer is the venerable raytracer POVRay

You'll have to spend a little time at it but if you search the net for Linux CAD packages you will find a fair number of comprehensive programs. I found one from Italy, free, that was almost as deep as AutoCad. Sorry, for the site but I found it through search so there is stuff out there.

Good Luck, Michael

Autodesk is not notoriously anti Unix and Linux, some of their biggest systems used in movie visual effects are Linux.
