As you may ( or may not ) know, work is being done on integrating a RenderMan-compliant renderer ( AQSIS ) into Blender - To sit along-side YafRay.
But here’s that catch…
The integration is still quite early and not yet up-to Yaf’s standard, but this is where you can help !!!
AQSIS are planning a movie project, highlighting the benefits of their renderer and exposing as many of it’s RenderMan features as possible.
Problem is, most of the AQSIS community are techies, and they need a little artistic help !!!
For those that are interested, more information can be found at http://aqsis.sourceforge.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=931.
A pre-compiled Win32 binary of the current Blender / AQSIS integration can be found at http://aqsis.sourceforge.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=918.
I know the timing’s not ideal ( with people preparing for the Blender conferences ), but any help you can provide will be of great benefit to both Blender and AQSIS !!!
Blend on, blend well…
