Enthusiasm - Home Page

Enthusiasm is a software framework to be implemented in support to the creation and production of drama-based information presentations. The framework consists of off-line editors and real-time applications.

Currently the development is focused on Tarta4D, the real-time 3D graphics visualization sub-module of the whole Enthusiasm architecture.

The Enthusiasm framework is the grounding base of the MESH software (Mise-en-scène Helper) [http://www.mesh-project.org]. Please, refer to the the MESH site for updated news and features.


Please, visit the WIKI for the latest, up-to-date, documentation about the project.

Here is a schematic architecture of Enthusiasm:


The development team is mainly the staff of the ASA-Lab located at the Virtual Reality & Multimedia Park , Torino, Italy

Project Hosting provided by SourceForge SourceForge.net Logo

Tarta4D uses the Ogre3D rendering engine

Sound playback and spatialization is based on OpenAL

Physics Simulation is based on ODE (Open Dynamics Engine)

C++ to Java binding is semi-automatically generated by SWIG

Multithreading and concurrency is handled via the PTypes library

XML I/O is performed through the TinyXML library

Joysticks and joypads are handled via the JInput library
