It wouldn't be as much blender-based as it would blender- created , but you could 1) make a penguin in blender 2) animate it to seperate frames (seperate files) 3) convert those to XPM file format 4) animate them on the desktop with a GTK app. http://www.johnmalone.org/gtk/tutorial/sec-pixmaps.html ...

Sorry, I was gonna put OS X after windows, but I put BSD there, and didn't feel like bumping down all the others (or put OS X at the very end)

As far as I know (according to O'Reilly), OS X is very much based on NeXT, with a Mach kernel. So, yes, it should be separate.

Open source is definitely the way to go. I don't even think you can integrate a proprietary system into an open one :?

Yeah, renderman shaders along with multiple outputs would solve most of the problem anyway. A renderer doesn't NEED to be integrated, as long as it's easy to output supported files for it and then run it externally.

The gallery definitely looks good, but I don't like the feel of the company. They probably run their website on win2k (.asp), I didn't see anything besides a windows version, and the download is password protected (come on, that's cheesy). I'd be happy with pretty much anything, so long as it's free...

What OS?

Just a poll to see what OSes people use and see what demand there is for renderers on platforms besides linux and windoze.

Oh, well, I didn't know 3Dsmax uses Lightflow. If it's that good, I agree that we should use it. I just haven't had any experience to vouch for it, that's all. Recommending what I know...

I see your point. The easiest thing I can think of to solve that is to use binary plugins (like texture plugins, for ex) that are compiled from any language the user desires.

I have nothing against using Lightflow, I have seen examples, and it looks good. I know a little about POVRay; it has a clean C style file syntax and, and that means no complicated app integrating needed. It works well, is proven, and very well supported, and POVRay files are easily hand-edited/crea...

Look at my thread about POV-Ray files. It would only be necessary to be able to write povray files, which shouldn't be that difficult, considering there are several python scripts that do that already (tho not very well). I suppose it would be possible to directly output some kind of intermediate fo...

POV-Ray files

I think that it would be a great idea if blender could write POVRay files. This would be good because: A. Blender would have a nice renderer without having to reinvent the wheel B. PovRay would finally have a nice GUI C. Blender would be simpler, because it wouldn't need a high-end renderer built-in...
