High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Aladdin4D is a software program for modeling and rendering three-dimensional graphics and animations, for the Amiga platform. Aladdin 4D was originally created by Greg Gorby at Adspec Programing in Ohio, and was an updated version of an earlier 3D program called Draw4D Pro, which integrated elements of desktop publishing into its environment. The 3D program was then acquired and updated by Nova Design, Inc. Nova Design added many modern features and made it easier to use. It was one of the first 3D animation programs on any platform to employ volumetrics, which were primarily used to create volumetric gas. However, unlike the majority of Amiga 3D programs, it used scanline rendering instead of the more photorealistic ray tracing technique. In 2005 Nova Design tried to make the program Open Source by selling it to the Amiga community asking the community to collect a Bounty of just US $37,579.83 for paying some bills that Nova Design had, but this bounty had no success. On December 17, 2007 Nova Design sold all inventory, source code and intellectual property rights to DiscreetFX LLC. DiscreetFX is updating and releasing a new 6.0 version for Mac OS X, iPad, AmigaOS 4, MorphOS 2, AROS, Linux Windows. The Windows version of Aladdin 4D will never be sold stand alone. Instead it will be included for free when you purchase the product for one of the other operating systems. Application will also be available for the Apple iPad.
