I bought a pair of 3D Glasses, and while looking to see those cool images/movies, I've discovered a plugin for Compiz, which enables Anaglyph for a window or for the entire screen. The effect it's kind of cool, but it's sad that they created this in 2008, and since then there isn't any change.... Perhaps Ubuntu will come in the future with it's own 3D mode.. who knows. .?
College computer science students often find it difficult to get started in programming languages like C++ and Java, largley due to the disconnect between simple middle-school languages like logo and advanced object-oriented programming (OOP) languages. To help bridge the gap, researchers at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) have developed an OOP language to create computer animations using 3-D models, called Alice.
3D computer graphics software refers to programs used to create 3D computer-generated imagery. There are typically many stages in the "pipeline" that studios use to create 3D objects for film and games, and this article only covers some of the software used.
The Essential Blender from No Starch Press is both a reference and instructional guide to Blender, the open source 3-D modeling, rendering, and animation tool. It walks readers through Blender's capabilities by alternating hands-on tutorials with broader, topical chapters that discuss the key concepts and how Blender implements them. Despite a few flaws, it's a good resource for those struggling with the software.
Blender is a super nifty graphics application that works really well with Ubuntu and most other Linux operating systems.
