Appleseed Renderer


Appleseed is an open source renderer. You can can export from Blender to Appleseed files using Blenderseed.

Appleseed describes itself as:

appleseed is an open source renderer with a focus on quality and correctness. It started as a platform for rendering research but the end goal has always been to develop a high-end renderer for a wider audience.

The renderer has a good set of features, and I'd like to hear how you think it stacks up against other Blender renderers!

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-)
