RibTools

RibTools is an experiment in writing an off-line renderer based on Pixar's RenderMan interface and the REYES rendering architecture.

NOTICE: Major development was suspended in 2010. Only occasional maintenance and refactoring updates are applied.

At the core of RibTools there is RibRender, the rendering engine, built with speed and scalability in mind.

Parallelism is implemented at all levels:

  • Instruction level (adaptive N-way SIMD)
  • Many-core hardware (multi-threading)
  • Network-distributed rendering (custom protocol over TCP/IP)

RibTools is a rather crude experiment and it's only tested against a small selection of simple scenes included in the project.
