Softimage Krakatoa SR Plugin

This a simple plugin for Softimage that exposes the Krakatoa SR particle renderer from Thinkbox Software as a renderer in Softimage. It is a very basic implementation at this point and is intended as a starting point rather than a fully functional production plugin.

This plugin has NOT been tested in production is just intended as a test/example.

You will need a valid Krakatoa "Render" license from Thinkbox for this plugin to work.

To build you will also need the Krakatoa SR C++ SDK which can be downloaded from the Thinkbox website

Pull requests welcomed.
