MPI-Version of radiance?

Hi!

I just found that there has been done some work on a mpi-radiance in the
past. This seams to be quite an interesting development but AFAIK only a very
old version of rpict has been modified to make use of mpi. Are there any new
versions of this, or is there anybody working on a "parallel-radiance"? (I ask
this after having rendered some pictures on a sun 880, an 4xultrasparc - what
still took days... ;-).

CU, Lars.

It's a good question...I worked the with the MPI version a few years
ago. Later on, I found out that LBL had a parallelized version
already but that it wasn't published. Anyone willing to speak more
directly to this? What's the status?

Also, what are people's favorite clusters?
