If you follow any of the Mega Voxels channels you’ll notice that a lot of the creations featured there are created using a program called MagicaVoxel. That is because MagicaVoxel gives creators the ability to add, edit, move and paint voxels on a 3D grid. To make it even better, MagicaVoxel has a powerful rendering engine built in to give your creations amazing visual detail. When a creator is done, it then provides numerous export options to transfer the voxel model into other projects like the Unity game engine or even share a picture to a social network like Instagram.

One awesome thing about MagicaVoxel is that it's constantly being updated. @ephtracy is always adding new features and tools to either make the program easier to use, or give creators the ability to more cool effects to their creations. For example, just recently he added a cloud effect for giving voxel models the ability to have realistic looking clouds inside of their scenes.

Keep in mind one of the most powerful features of MagicaVoxel is the built-in rendering engine that ships with the software. This gives you ability to create ultra realistic pictures with lights, shadows and shading. Some of the amazing visuals come straight out of the box.
