Mayalicious: Liquid | Aqsis vs. MTOR

Have any of you heard of Liquid (an MTOR-like Maya-to-Renderman back end for generating geometry, lighting, texture, and shading models) and Aqsis (a free RenderMan compatible open source REYES renderer)?

One of the KDD students is using it in a cartoon shader project this semester. It might work for MacOS 10.x, too, depending on the IDE and compilers. Tentatively, I would recommend the above combination for Linux and Windows (Intel and AMD) platforms, on the strength of what I've seen.s.

Edit, 06:15 CDT Thu 30 Sep 2004: I was telling darana about this and got a link in return.
