Free Film Project - Interoperability
This will document all the interoperability requirements for the
project. This is intended as a guide for other programmers
wishing to contribute to the project.
- Where applicable, stand-alone software should be able to
interoperate with existing GNU software.
- eg: Project managers should be able to read/write GNU
makefiles and GNU autoconfig files.
- Rendering packages and modellers should be able to support
both native FFP files and Renderman-compliant files.
- This project will not use, or promote, non-free rendering packages.
At the time this project started, no non-free rendering packages existed.
This is no longer the case, and all references to such packages, EXCEPT
for file formats and APIs, are now revoked and removed. The project may
end up creating its own rendering package, as all existing packages use
techniques that have been superseded. This is where the freedom issue is
important. FFP developers CANNOT enhance non-free software, and we can't
produce the sort of quality we want, using software that can't do the
