Radiance OpenSource License Agreement



Main Distribution

The official LBNL Radiance distribution as of November 5,2023 is version 5.4.

To compile from source you will need the following file which contains both source code and auxiliary files: rad5R4all.tar.gz

The following file contains just source code: rad5R4.tar.gz

The following file contains just the auxiliary files: rad5R4supp.tar.gz

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.)
