Advanced Visualizer from Alias/Wavefront is an integrated workstation-based 3D animation system that offers a comprehensive set of tools for 3D modeling, animation, rendering, image composition, and video output. All operations within Advanced Visualizer are performed in immediate mode with double buffered windows. There are four basic modes of operation within Advanced Visualizer:
- 55% material shading (textured, z-buffered, backface-culled, 2 local lights)
- 95% perspective, 80% trilinear mipmapped, modulated (41.8%)
- 95% perspective, 20% nearest, modulated (10.45%)
- 5% ortho, 80% trilinear mipmapped, modulated (2.2%)
- 5% ortho, 20% nearest, modulated (.55%)
- 30% wireframe (no z-buffering, no lighting)
- 95% perspective (28.5%)
- 5% ortho (1.5%)
- 10% smooth shading (z-buffered, backface-culled, 2 local lights)
- 95% perspective (9.5%)
- 5% ortho (.5%)
- 5% flat shading (z-buffered, backface-culled, 2 local lights)
- 95% perspective (4.75%)
- 5% ortho (.25%)
DesignReview is a 3D computer model review package specifically tailored for plant design models consisting of piping, equipment and structural elements such as I-beams, HVAC ducting, and electrical raceways. It allows flexible viewing and manipulation of the model for helping the design team visually track progress, identify interference, locate components, and facilitate project approvals by presenting clear presentations that technical and non-technical audiences can understand. There are 6 tests specified by the viewset that represent the most common operations performed by DesignReview.
The IBM Visualization Data Explorer (DX) is a general-purpose software package for scientific data visualization and analysis. It employs a data-flow driven client-server execution model and is currently available on Unix workstations from Silicon Graphics, IBM, Sun, Hewlett-Packard and Digital Equipment. The OpenGL port of Data Explorer was completed with the recent release of DX 2.1.The tests visualize a set of particle traces through a vector flow field. The width of each tube represents the magnitude of the velocity vector at that location. Data such as this might result from simulations of fluid flow through a constriction. The object represented contains about 1,000 triangle meshes containing approximately 100 vertices each. This is a medium-sized data set for DX.
The Lightscape Visualization System from Discreet Logic represents a new generation of computer graphics technology that combines proprietary radiosity algorithms with a physically based lighting interface.There are four tests specified by the viewset that represent the most common operations performed by the Lightscape Visualization System
The ProCDRS-02 viewset is a complete update of the CDRS-03 viewset. It is intended to model the graphics performance of Parametric Technology Corporation's CDRS industrial design software.For more information on CDRS, see www.ptc.com/icem/products/cdrs/cdrs.htmThe viewset consists of ten tests, each of which represents a different mode of operation within CDRS. Two of the tests use a wireframe model, and the other tests use a shaded model. Each test returns a result in frames per second, and a composite score is calculated as a weighted geometric mean of the individual test results. The tests are weighted to represent the typical proportion of time a user would spend in each mode.
