screw Pixar RenderMan – get Pixie!

“Pixie is a RenderMan like photorealistic renderer. It is being developed in the hope that it will be useful for graphics research and for people who can not afford a commercial renderer. Pixie is an open source project licensed under Gnu Public License (GPL).”

It’s astonishing what you can do with modern renderers…the physic simulations in the gallery samples are even more astonishing…
