Acropora Voxel Modeler: synthesizing terrain and organic objects

A procedural modeler, Acropora combines volumetric modifiers with multi-octave 3D noise sampling to generate detailed surfaces in far less time than conventional surface modeling software. Acropora adopts a less deterministic approach to generating complex, organic shapes by applying sequences of modifiers on large voxelized meshes. The effect is to create an endless, seamless expanse of surface that undulates and changes in a natural way. The resulting meshes contain caves, ridges, overhangs and other natural features that are not possible with height maps. Meshes can then be broken up into segments, with segments further divided into different levels of details.

Corrections and bug fixes:
- Fixed scaling errors
- Fixed lighting errors
- Fixed general programming errors
- Improved 3D manipulators (scale, translate, rotate)
- Fixed voxel data export for noise modifiers.
- Fixed supported images in displace modifier
- Fixed exporting bugs
- Fixed importing of .obj model files

Additions and improvements:
- Added pan capability to display (finally!) -> use middle mouse button
- Added Region extraction
- Added Cave entrance modifier
- Added Crater modifier
- Added 3D texture (.DDS) export (of voxel volume).
- Added masking option to regions (restricts modifiers via mask file)
- Added coordinate transforms to regions (positions are transformed prior to processing of modifiers.
