Kind of surprised it hasn't been mentioned in here yet.

Jot (http://jot.cs.princeton.edu/)

Looking pretty darn sweet.

I'm surprised too. Maybe they haven't seen what it's capable of.

64 MB Divx movie, well worth the download.

Amazing stuff. And, by the way, it's free and comes with a Lightwave import/export plugin!

This video was also worth while

I downloaded it and ran through the Cactus tutorial. The real-time preview was great. The UI and workflow don't look like they were created for the artist imo.

What is this JOT thing? Is it a modeler? Is it a renderer?

Justin, what kind of video card do you have in your system?

I ran the tut on my laptop with an ATI Mobility RADEON 9000 w/ WinXP

I did read in the manuals that:
"Jot requires nVidia GeForce or ATI Radeon 8000 series graphics hardware on Microsoft Windows (Linux coming soon)."

Hope this helps.

Been fooling around for a couple of days with jot, and I must admit it is the single most impressive piece of software I have encountered since I discovered compositing 10 years ago :) This is something truly innovative and I'm sure that what comes out from this research will no doubt find it's way into mainstream apps someday and probably even games and such. Really nice! Kudos to the people involved in the development and now it's time to put it through it's paces :)
