Radiance OpenSource License Agreement



Main Distribution

The official LBNL Radiance distribution as of August 2017 is version 5.1, and may be obtained from the following link:

    rad5R1all.tar.gz (189 Megs - 189,248,742 bytes)

For convenience, the programs have been compiled on Mac OS X (10.6),and the binaries may be found in:

    rad5R1_macosx_bin.tar.gz (5.7 Megs - 5,667,413 bytes)

You will still need to unpack the distribution to get the library files and example scenes, running "makeall library". Users who do not have the above systems will have to compile Radiance using the makeall script by running "makeall install".
(See the README file for details, and pay special attention to setting the RAYPATH environment variable.)
