MoonRay is a proven, physically based, material multi-machine renderer. DreamWorks hopes to make it a more competitive renderer by open-sourcing MoonRay. MoonRay supports the Arras distributed computing framework using DreamWorks and uses some Intel software components such as Embree and ISPC.
MoonRay will be open-sourced under the Apache 2.0 license and is currently reviewing/clearing the code for release, expected to be signed later this year. The open source website is OpenMoonRay.org, but at the moment it’s just a press release from DreamWorks Animation.
