Art of Illusion is a free, open source 3D modelling and rendering studio. Many of its capabilities rival those found in commercial programs. Highlights include subdivision surface based modelling tools, skeleton based animation, and a graphical language for designing procedural textures and materials..

The current version is 3.0, released Sept. 23, 2013. This version is both stable and powerful enough to be used for serious, high end animation work.

If you want some idea of what Art of Illusion is capable of, take a look at the screenshots and art gallery.

We now have an extensive documentation section. This includes the user manual, as well as a number of tutorials covering different aspects of the program.

Discussion forums, bug reporting, and much more can be accessed through the SourceForge project page for Art of Illusion.
