|I posted an ebuild for the RenderMan-compliant 3Delight renderer here.
3Delight is a commercial, closed-source renderer actively developed since 1999 and with quite a few big feature film visual effects credits these days. It rivals Pixar's PhotoRealistic RenderMan in both feature set & speed.
DNA Research, the company behind 3Delight, gives a full-blown, commercial, single node, 2 thread license away for free to any user. This means you can do commercial grade work with this renderer w/o spending a penny on licenses. The ebuild has instructions on how to obtain a license from the website.
The abuild currently lacks support for the openexr use flag to install & configure this optional dependency to render out OpenEXR images. I'll add this as soon as I find the time.
Ebuild feedback welcome.
