Fast rendering toolkit
FRT is a toolkit for the generation of 3D animations using low-end machines (slow CPUs, low memory and small harddisks); of course, you can still use it with higher-end machines. The program is simple; the whole library is about 1000 lines of code. FRT has been designed with a *NIX-like operating system in mind: to avoid filling the harddisk, FRT establishes a master/slave relationship with mpeg_encode and renders frames on demand.
