Rendered with Reflections-Animator

Amiga Reflections is 3D modeling and rendering software developed by Carsten Fuchs for the Commodore Amiga. It was later renamed Monzoom.

The first Bookware release was 1989, and contained a book and a floppy disk. The book was the manual and had some tutorials explaining how a raytracer works. The Floppy contained the software with some models and examples. Carsten Fuchs extended the software with a more advanced modeler and an animation module in 1992 the Reflections-Animator.

As of version 4.3, in 1998,[1] Amiga Reflections was renamed Monzoom or Monzoom 3D and distributed by Oberland Computer.[2]

Monzoom Pro was available on CD with the March/April 2008 issue of the German print magazine Amiga Future.[3][4][5] Monzoom also became available for PC as Shareware.[6]
