The Modelling and Animation Machine and Virtual Rendering System form the basic components of a 3D visualization and graphics library for implementing visualization software. The Virtual Rendering System is a thin object-oriented layer for different rendering systems such as OpenGL or RenderMan. It provides an abstract interface to 3-D rendering and encapsulates many rendering techniques and algorithms. The user can switch between different rendering systems at runtime. The Modeling and Animation Machine provides higher-level modeling of 3-D scenes, their behavior, and the 3-D user interaction based on scene graphs and behavior graphs. A large collection of building blocks supports fast development of all types of 3-D applications. The open architecture ensures that your applications can grow with MAM/VRS, and MAM/VRS can grow with an increasing number of freely available components.It's easy to create new shape types, and existing 3D graphics code can be wrapped and fully integrated.MAM/VRS can be integrated in any windowing system and user interface toolkit. There's a collection of application frames for Tcl/Tk, MFC, Qt, Gtk and X11. This project was formerly known as 'mamvrs.'
