  Use of blender in IRTC or TC-RTC? (Message 1 to 6 of 6)

I have been using blender.  It has both a "blender internal" renderer
(scanline??) and a "yafray" (ray-tacing??) rendering engine.

Q: Would either of the IRTC or TC-RTC have an objection to the use of the
"blender internal" engine?   If either do, could someone unpack for me the
aesthetics, ethics, or  politics behind the distinction between scanline and
ray-tracing?

thanks.

This is mentioned in the rules of the TC-IRTC and the original IRTC.
http://www.tc-rtc.co.uk/rules/index.html
http://www.irtc.org/stills/faq.html#q1.1.7

Both permit the use of any 3D package (any modeler or renderer).

	Plus, anyway the Blender internal engine features both a scanline
and a raytracing mode...

I suppose the confusion comes from the RT in both names...  :-)

Whenever I entered anything in the IRTC that was done with a non-raytracing 3D
modelling and rendering program, I would always get low scores from the voters
with the explanation that they gave me low scores all around because I didn't
use a ray-tracer. :(

   Well, you would be very welcome at the TC-RTC where it's now a 3D 
'render' Challenge where any 3D modeling and rendering program can be used.
