Re: AROS 3d Rendering
Although my application is based in part on older sources (Ray Storm) mostly for 3d object file loading and saving, it's a completely new raytracing/rendering application. I'm not sure what interaction there will be between programs or how that will be beneficial.

Miker I spoke to alexander the author of the wcs programa porting that can interact with 3D software and told him that your project is in the works and if wcs could interact with it

Re: Linux BootStrap - Hostapp
chrisripp, consider updating your system as well, many things have changed, there have been hundreds of bugs fixed, and more Cores have been updated. Important, if you have to upgrade your system "you have to remove from the system" some libraries, and all software that uses these libraries, you can read in the attached link about the big changes ! https://www.arosworld.org/infusions/forum/viewthread.php?thread_id=1171&rowstart=0

Re: Linux BootStrap - Hostapp
Hello Paulone, In System/System/Hosted, there are some scripts including dotdesktop, I wanted to try, but it doesn't work. I tried the same on Ubuntu, I don't understand, I must be missing something. Can someone explain it to me step by step? How to launch a Linux application under Icaros? I don't have your Amiga level, I'm a small gamer. I am posting Icaros which I have updated, as explained a little above. If anyone wants to test, see if what I did is correct. LINK: https://kdrive.infomaniak.com/app/share/561690/ee9ea626-f39a-4a63-a8c7-7b23aad694e6 My interest is to create a Linux distribution, which boots directly on Aros, with links to Linux applications incorporated, as well as a launch of ES-desktop configured amiga (emulationstation like batocera). I have already done it with amiberry or fs-uae which directly launches an Amiga system at startup. The Hostrun Amiberry works very well, but the project is still too young and we only launch 3.x The aim will be to discover the abilities of Aros. The hostrun is essential, so as not to remain stuck on a compartmentalized system, but to extend it to today's modernism. With the launch of modern applications Linux, mac, Windows. These are just my thoughts, I'm not a coder, and have no idea of the magnitude of the task. But as a simple user, I think it would be great.

Re: AROS 3d Rendering
For displaying wireframes OpenGL (glut) may be useful but for rendering scenes a dedicated raytracer engine will be used. Applications such as this are very complex. Building a full user interface which includes the wireframe display process including all the menu items and sub-functions is all very time consuming. For development and ease of testing I'd prefer a simple command line application. The full-blown application will be "Sun-Ray Raytracer" which includes the complete user interface, button menu, app menu and display. The test application will be "RaytracerX" which is command line only with switches -w -r -s (wireframe, render, save). It will have a command line progress indicator 10%20%30%...100%...done! The syntax of RaytracerX will be: raytracerx -r dolphins.scn dolphins.ppm which is very basic. I will add features and expand the functionality during development. For old Amiga rendering applications I don't believe they could output 32 bit ARGB images, only RGB. The exception would be Lightwave and some other higher quality apps. RaytracerX will be able to produce either RGB or ARGB.

Re: AROS 3d Rendering
[quote name=pixie post=3950]@pixie - Congrats!!! Good to see new software, and 3D software runs close to earth in my case! I started learning with Imagine 3D when a render would take a night! :)[/quote] Yes. I agree. I have some pleasant memories of rendering with 3D Studio R4 in the mid-nineties. It was running in DOS 5.0 on a PC with a 33 Mhz CPU and very little memory. The Marble Vase 3ds file took about 30 minutes to render to a 24 bit Targa Image. Rendering was so slow in those days. It will be interesting to see how much faster modern PC's are compared to those early days.

Re: AROS 3d Rendering
[quote name=AMIGASYSTEM post=3946]@AMIGASYSTEM - Beautiful, simple and intuitive ![/quote] Exactly. That's my intent to make it easy to use. The modular approach seems best. It will allow loading 3d scene files or 3ds. It will use a simple progress indicator like the one that Magellan uses on startup. I want it to seem reminiscent of the old DOS based 3D Studio R4. The Marble Vase is actually a real image of one of my own .3ds files from 3DStudio R4. It would be really cool to have a 3d graphics program that can render my old .3ds files and new ones too! That's why I'm using the blue and grey colors. And the progressbar colors are also blue and grey. It will be about 50% based on existing code for the rendering engine and internal framework. The other 50% will be completely new code. If you are interested in raytracing there is a website called Scratchapixel that explains all the details about raytracing programs.

Re: AROS 3d Rendering
This is a project in the early stages of development. It's Sun-Ray Raytracer. The user interface has a quick action Button Menu and an app logo and wireframe display. It will also have an extensive program menu. I'm not sure if I will use OpenGL to draw the wireframes based on a 3d polygon mesh file or if I will choose direct draw methods to draw to the Rasterport. So I will work on the user interface and drawing wireframes first then the 3d scenes. I'd like to make it 100% compatible with 3D Studio .3ds and prj 3d object files as well as .scn scene files. It will use a progress indicator when rendering. Once the scene has been rendered it will be saved as .ppm then the file will be opened in the Picture Viewer window for display. The sample is "Utah Teapot".

Re: Linux BootStrap - Hostapp
Hi Chris. Why are you importing .desktop files in hostbridge? .desktop files are just sort of links IIRC, while hostbridge requires you to enter the actual executable to get its path.

@magorium The good salass00, had published it along with SMB2 on aros-exec, two very useful tools, SMB2 also has a GUI that makes it easier to use: https://ae.arosworld.org/index.php?topic=1065.msg16741#msg16741
