What is Realsoft 3D?

Realsoft 3D is a full-featured 3D modeling, animation and rendering software package.

It is the culmination of 15 years of design and development in the 3D arena. Realsoft 3D represents almost 6 years of work from the team at Realsoft Oy , Finland. It is the latest incarnation of Real 3D, totally revamped and updated.

Realsoft 3D feature set:

  • An easy-to-use, intelligent, and fully configurable user interface.
  • Subdivision surface modeling that represents the forefront of this modeling technique. Our SDS surfaces support creases and non-rational (weighted) control points, and are rendered using NURBS technology to achieve the best possible output quality
  • A full-featured solid modeling system that supports both BRT and CSG techniques
  • NURBS modeling
  • Metaball objects
  • Easy keyframe animation
  • Skeleton control and footprint animation
  • An advanced choreography animation system that allows weighted blending of motion components that have been taught to an animated character.
  • Animation by physical simulation, featuring collision detection, gravity, magnetism, etc.
  • An extremely powerful particle system
  • 64 bit per channel ray-tracing technology that produces superior image quality
  • A 3D painting system
  • A Visual Shading Language which allows the user to define procedural materials and effects without writing a single line of code
  • A post-effects processor for creating various image effects such as lens flares and fog Tools for true 3D composition
  • Support for real-time rendering through OpenGL
  • Use of multi-threading and symmetric multiprocessing
  • Cross-platform distributed network rendering
  • A drag&drop GUI development system
  • An open, modular architecture
  • A 100% open and platform independent development interface (SDK) that provides 3rd party companies with total control over every feature.
  • Global illumination system which can be fully customized by the user
  • Multi-wavelength ray tracing for accurate spectral caustics (prisms etc.) and other optical effects
  • Sub-surface scattering for realistic human skin shading
  • Rendering time surface displacement enables ray tracing of surfaces consisting of millions of details
  • Quick shadow map based lighting
  • Hierarchical sub-image network distribution for unlimited render farms over internet at no additional cost
  • A new user friendly tabbed toolbar providing a direct access to the modelling tools
  • A new torsion elimination option for skeleton animation
  • JavaScript support
  • Context sensitive help system which links all elements of the user interface to the reference manual
  • Multiple platform support, including Windows 95/98/NT/2000, Linux, SGI, Alpha and others are under development.
