FastVox project is a state of the art volume rendering API with outstanding image quality and acceleration features.
Version: 2.0 Alpha 1FastVox project is a state of the art volume rendering API with outstanding image quality and acceleration features that take advantage of today's hardware. These features include GPU, SSE and hand-tuned assembly language optimizations, resulting in one of the fastest implementations available on the market.
Operating System: Linux
FastVox is built on top of OpenGL, the leading industry standard for high performance 3D computer graphics. A new feature of the 2.0 engine are the GLSL-based pixel shaders which perform all volume rendering computations exclusively on the GPU.
A key-feature of FastVox is the clean and simple API. This API enables developers to quickly integrate FastVox into third-party applications.
In contrast to other volume renderers, FastVox also supports features specially suited for use in the medical field. Features like Multiplanar Reformation and Maximum Intensity Projection are supported and made readily accessible through its simple API.
What's New in This Release:
· This release features hardware-accelerated rendering plugins based on the OpenGL 2.0 GLSL shading language.
· The GPU acceleration is available for volume rendering, ISO surface rendering, maximum-intensity projection, and multiplanar reconstruction.
· In addition, the handling of transfer tables has been facilitated and enhanced to improve the rendering output.
