Art Of Illusion

Art of Illusion is an open-source 3D modeling and rendering software. The Java-based program can create scenes from scratch or use a variety of object types including meshes, curves, meta-balls and primitive shapes. It offers texture mapping, POV-Ray integration for advanced ray tracing options, as well as the ability to animate objects within scenes using keyframes. Art of Illusion also supports scripting in BeanShell which allows for complex operations and automation beyond what its graphical interface provides.
