fryrender is the physically based light simulator developed by RandomControl. It is a photo-realistic render engine where all the elements involved in the generation of the final image (materials, lights and cameras) are based on physically accurate models.

Additional components[edit]

fryrender standalone is a general purpose rendering tool with a visual UI, however it has several additional tools such as:

  • fryeditor - A standalone physically correct material creation application
  • frycmd - A command line version of fryrender standalone
