Amira Public Beta – visualization and 3D reconstruction

We are pleased to announce the first publically available
BETA version of AMIRA, an advanced visualization and 3D
reconstruction software:


Amira is a modern, user-friendly interactive Workbench for researchers
and developers. It offers fascinating new possibilities wherever
3-dimensional data sets occur. State-of-the-art visualization
techniques provide detailed insight into your data.

3D image data can be processed by powerful automatic and interactive
segmentation tools. Novel, fast, and robust reconstruction algorithms
make it easy to create polygonal models from segmented objects. This
makes Amira  the ideal tool for research in medicine, biology, and

In addition, true volumetric tetrahedral meshes can be generated,
suitable for advanced finite-element simulations. Simulation results
as well as other data defined on a variety of different grids can be
investigated using a large set of powerful visualization methods.

Supported platforms:
-- SGI IRIX 6.x (all platforms)
-- HP-UX 10.2 (tested with fx/6 graphics)
-- Linux glibc, e.g. RedHat 5.2, S.u.S.E. 6.0
