Art of Illusion

Art of Illusion is a free, open source 3D modelling and rendering studio

It is written entirely in Java, and should be usable on any Java Virtual Machine which is compatible with J2SE 1।4 or later.

The current version is 2.5.1, released Oct. 21, 2007. This version is both stable and powerful enough to be used for serious, high end animation work. Many of its capabilities rival those found in commercial programs. Some of the highlights include subdivision surface based modelling tools, skeleton based animation, and a graphical language for designing procedural textures and materials.

This is the main window for editing scenes। The interface is designed to be clean, easy to learn, and simple to use.
Object Editor
Art of Illusion provides subdivision surface based modelling tools for creating smooth surfaces from control meshes of arbitrary shape and structure. A powerful set of deformation tools allow you to "sculpt" objects in a natural, intuitive way.

Here are some examples of artwork created with Art of Illusion:
