MindsEye is a 3D modeler and renderer capable of creating photorealistic 3D worlds. MindsEye is the single biggest program I have ever written. It grew out of a class project in 1986 and existed for many years as an E language program that was too slow to run on the Genius 2 computer. But today's computers are fast enough! I created the present version of MindsEye in the C language in 1996.

MindsEye is a triangle-based 3D modeler. Everything it creates is composed of triangle meshes. The renderer is a ray tracer. MindsEye creates only still images.
