  • flow
    flow allows one to interactively construct sophisticated particle systems and render the results either in real-time via OpenGL or off-line by a RenderMan compliant renderer. flow can also 'render' a particle system to code. Using a project template, flow fills in the required code to automatically produce demos or screensavers.
  • Frameworks
    Frameworks is stop-motion animation frame capture software primarily for Linux. Frameworks captures images from a camera and strings them together into an animation. These still images may then be combined into a single video file using other software. Only video4linux webcams are currently supported; work is being done to add other types of digital cameras including IEEE 1394 camcorders, and USB still cameras.
