Blender Python Renderer

Blender Python Renderer

Blender Python Renderer is a GPU renderer, written purely in Python and designed for prototyping and research.

Key features:

  • Python-Based GPU Rendering: Enables users to write GPU rendering code quickly in Python. While not as efficient as GLSL, it offers a much faster development process.
  • Scene Generation Using Blender: Allows users to generate scenes directly in Blender or utilize thousands of free Blender scenes available online.
  • Simple and Extensible Framework: Provides a straightforward and extensible framework for rendering code, influenced by Peter Shirley’s “Ray Tracing in One Weekend” and PBRT. The add-on includes an implementation of “Ray Tracing in One Weekend” in Python, demonstrating its approach to rendering code development.
