G'day all.

Quoting Andrew Coppin <andrewcoppin at btinternet.com>:

Speaking as an ex-VFX head, there are very few "production-grade"
renderers out there, and of those, very few are primarily ray tracers,
and of those, almost none are what most would consider "user-friendly".

So you've set the bar quite high there.
