The io_scene_pbrt add-on is a Blender extension that allows for the export of scenes to the PBRT renderer’s ASCII file format.

Key features:

  • PBRT ASCII File Format Export: Transforms Blender scene data into a format that is readily interpretable by the PBRT renderer.
  • Support for PBRT v4: While full support is in development, the add-on provides a method to work with PBRT version 4 through a command-line function.
  • Learning and Development Focus: Originating as a project to aid in the developer’s transition from 3dsmax to Blender, it also serves as a learning tool for the community.
