Realsoft was founded in 1989 to develop and market a product called Real 3D. Real 3D - nowadays known as Realsoft 3D - is a graphics software tool for production of high quality photorealistic graphics and animation.

The company focuses on software development on the main product line. So far Realsoft has released ten major product revisions and sold over 10 000 software licenses worldwide (excluding updates). OEM licenses sold to other software vendors have also generated substantial revenues. The main market areas include USA, Japan, Germany, other European countries, Canada, Australia and Russia.

The Internet has become the most important distribution channel for Realsoft's products. In addition, about a dozen active dealers around the world sell Realsoft 3D. Most dealers are companies specializing in computer graphics, and many of them do their own production work.


Realsoft is a skillful and highly efficient company. The 15 years of operating in 3D software business and several successful product releases have given the company strong experience and an exceptionally clear vision of how to create a competitive 3D software package.

Realsoft's product development has always been innovative. The company has been a pioneer in the development of several major features available today in 3D products. Some examples: Realsoft was the first to introduce ray tracing with quadrics and spline surfaces, B-spline modeling and advanced physics simulation based animations on desktop platforms. The whole software technology behind Realsoft 3D is developed by Realsoft itself.

Realsoft uses the latest software technology to maximize development efficiency. Thanks to the platform independent design, new development can be utilized immediately on all supported platforms - no porting work at all is required. Object oriented programming model allows changes in the product layout or assembling a totally new product from the base modules quickly.

The operational model of Realsoft is also modern and flexible: the programmers work together as a team using the Internet to communicate and to share ideas efficiently. Advanced concepts have been built for development coordination and product testing via the Internet. Realsoft can work with individuals and teams anywhere in the world.
