- OpenMOIV has been used in the project Tifanis.

[2006/02/10]

- New Version 1.0.3a released. Several bugs have been fixed. We also support g++ 3.2.3. The OpenMOIV team wish to thank especially Karen L. Schuchardt for her sustained interest and feedback.

[2006/01/27]

- New Version 1.0.3 released. The library is now compatible with AppleŽ MacOS X. Several bugs have been fixed.

- We have updated CMake and qmake project files for OpenMOIV (included in the source code packages). You can download them from the license page.

- Currently integrating Open Babel support in OpenMOIV.

[2004/10/01]

- Support to AppleŽ MacOS X is started. If you are interested in running OpenMOIV over this platform, please contact directly with us.

[2004/08/03]

- New Version 1.0.2 released. The library is now compatible with fl-inventor toolkit (aka SoFl-FLTK + OSS-Inventor). OpenMOIV can be compiled as a dynamic link library (DLL) in Win32 (suitable for commercial projects).

- We have released binary versions of OpenMOIV demo application for Win32, Linux and IRIX. You can download them from the download page.

- We have released precompiled binaries of OpenMOIV for Win32, Linux and IRIX. You can download them from the license page.

- We have released CMake project files for OpenMOIV (included in the source code packages) You can download them from the license page.

- A new commercial software (Molecular Discovery's GRID) is using OpenMOIV.

[2004/06/28]

- New Version 1.0.1 released. We have updated the library with several improvements (octree culling, ribbon LOD, etc.) and new functionalities (PDB and MOL importers). You can download the new version from the download page.

- We have released a simple demo application to test the library. In the demo, you can open molecules and change some visualisation parameters. The demo is available from the download page.

- OpenMOIV Manual has been updated. You can download the new version from the documentation page.


Introduction

About this site

OpenMOIV is an object-oriented, 3D multi-platform toolkit that helps you develop molecular visualization applications.
OpenMOIV is an evolution of the original Molecular Inventor™ from SGI™ that optimizes the rendering of molecular structures and adds a whole new set of functionalities. Molecular Inventor is also an extension of the Open Inventor toolkit, and runs on top of it. OpenMOIV simplifies the process of writing molecular visualization applications with atoms, bonds, surfaces and residues.

OpenMOIV is the result of molecular visualization research of the GTI group of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) in Barcelona (Spain). The research was done in the context of the European Union supported project Link3D.

You will find here a toolkit for developing complex chemical scenes with a few lines of code with a visual performance orders of magnitude higher than those previously achieved in this field. Our objectives were to develop a toolkit that really takes advantage of the graphics possibilities of current hardware. We have concentrated on determining the current bottlenecks of molecular visualization and applying advanced techniques to solve them.

We expect to continue this development in the near future introducing new additional functionalities. This project is Open Source and we would like to hear from you if you work expanding it.
