What do you think of ArtOfIllusion!!!!!

(Timonides) #1

Hello guys!!! :smiley:

I’ve been using ArtOfIllusion in parallel with Blender for some time now (you can find it at: www.artofillusion.org) and though it lacks a lot of blenders features, it still seems a good solution as a modelling, rendaring and animating package.

So the question is:

Just in case blender goes for good (I wish not), do you think that ArtOfIllusion could be a good replacement?

I just downloaded this and got it running on the Mac, but I think I’m going to move it over to the Linux box. Some of the gallery pictures look promising, but I’m a little put off by the fact that it’s written in Java. It may not have been the best choice for a 3D app.

I downloaded it and tried it out on my PowerBook, it’s a pertty nice program. Being written in java makes it kind of slow, especialy the rendering. It is very portable though.

Downloading it now… Depends on how fast it is… If it’s slow and clunky then it won’t be much fun to use.
