Global Information Group's modeling and animation software, GIG3DGO, was developed for artists working in creative communication with digital media. GIG3DGO provides you with the sophisticated 3D modeling, animation and rendering functionality you need to fully and accurately communicate your vision.

Modeling Highlights:

  • Spline free forms; rotational bodies, extrusions and patches
  • Constructive Solid Geometry (CSG) with primitives: cube, cone, sphere, cylinder and torus
  • Animated true Boolean operations: union, group, subtract, intersect and overlay
  • Text generation using any available Type 1 Postscript font
  • NURBS modeling with real-time update of NURBS surfaces and point-independent morphing
  • Iso-surface modeling using any geometric primitive
Animation Highlights:
  • Keyframing, Track and sequence editing, Time curve editing
  • Preview and playback control, super sequences and events
  • Flipbook preview
  • Virtual camera movement: track, zoom, pan, tilt, move, roll and orbit
  • Particle generation and animation; generation of atmospheric and smoke-effects
  • Animated textures
  • Procedural animation of particles in user-defined vector flow fields
Rendering Highlights:
  • Optimized raytraced rendering
  • 8-bit mattes (image composition)
  • Linear, quadratic and constant light sources
  • Point, spot, ambient and local lights
  • Glass and metal rendering
  • Maps on lights
  • Soft shadows and depth of field
  • Motion blur and field rendering
  • Multi-processor support
