RibTools
========
**RibTools** is an experiment in writing an off-line renderer based on Pixar's [RenderMan interface] and the [REYES] rendering architecture.
[RenderMan interface]: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RenderMan_Interface_Specification
[REYES]: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reyes_rendering
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.
