S3 Graphics S3FotoPro Quick Review

S3FotoPro is a GPGPU (General Purpose GPU) acccelerated utility for image processing. S3FotoPro requires Windows XP SP2/3 or Vista SP1 and a Chrome-based S3 graphics card. Geeks3D has such a graphics card (a S3 Chrome 430 GT) so let’s play a little bit with this software.

Zhu3D: An interactive OpenGL Mathematical Function Viewer

Zhu3D is an interactive OpenGL-based mathematical function viewer. You can visualize functions, parametric systems and isosurfaces. The viewer supports special effects like animation, morphing, transparency, textures, fog and motion blur.

Zhu3D runs under Linux/Unix, Windows XP-Vista and Mac OS X (the graphical user interface – GUI – uses Qt) and supports different CPU’s as well as different API’s like KDE, Gnome or Motiv. Isosurface calculation currently supports up to 16 CPU-threads.

Ooops… c’mon Zhu3D, you don’t recognize an OpenGL system like mine, this is a joke! Doesn’t matter. Let’s see the next:

Ah it’s better. Many samples are provided and you can changer the rendering mode (wireframe, solid, point). And for developers, full source code is packed into the archive. Cool!
