What is a "trial-renderer"?

(12 Sep '11, 22:49) Tordanik

I have no idea what a "trial" renderer is, but I know a few 3D renderers:

  • OpenKýbl3DMap (web) converts OSM data to .pov files which can be rendered by POVRay
  • OSM2World (web) converts OSM data to .pov files, .obj files (for modellers like Blender), or renders .png files directly through OpenGL
  • Glosm is a hardware-accelerated OpenGL-based viewer/renderer
  • OSM-3D (web) is an interactive virtual globe. The viewer and protocol documentation are freely avaliable, but afaik the backend is not.
  • OSM2XP (web) creates scenery for the commercial flight simulator XPlane

I am not sure what the word "trial" in your question means, but using http://www.povray.org/ should work. Instructions for OSM here. I am sure there are more.

The wiki has a list of renderers, there are also two 3D renderers mentioned.
