Pixar only has Renderman running on Linux - it's hardly a
modeling/animation package.

Writing a good 3D modeling/animation package is _a lot_ of work, some of
it is pretty tedious. I know because I've been a 3rd party developer for
3D Studio MAX and had the access to core architecture and so on. I've
often thought about starting such a project, but it would need a team of
dedicated developers more than a little time to produce the basics of
such a system.
