Art of Illusion 3.0

A full featured 3D modelling, rendering and animation studio for users of all skill levels that want to render environments in a a simple manner
Art of Illusion is an application that you can use to create detailed 3D scenes and animations with an intuitive set of tools.

Images are produced by rendering scene files. These scene files need to contain some 3-D objects, at least one light (or some form of global illumination) so that the objects can be seen and at least one camera, the view from which provides the image.

Complex scenes may contain many hundreds of objects and several lights. Files built for animation may have several cameras between which the view is cut to make for an interesting animation sequence.

3-D objects come in 4 basic flavours: Primitives, spline meshes, triangle meshes and tubes, all of which are described in detail later in this manual. Art of Illusion has highly flexible, but easy to use, editors for textures (surface properties such as colour, bumpiness, shininess, transparency etc.) and materials (inner properties for simulating glass and smoke).

Animation of objects within the scene is achieved with a keyframing system including support for skeletons using forward and inverse kinematic animation. Textures can also be animated.
