RenderPark (1.4MB, ZIP)
K.U.Leuven photorealistic rendering tool. Rendering algorithms implemented: Galerkin radiosity (both gathering and shooting) with (or without) hierarchical refinement, higher order approximations, clustering, view-importance, stochastic ray radiosity, ray-casting, classic and stochastic ray-tracing.

POV-Ray (6.4MB, ZIP) [alternative platforms and accessories]
The Persistence of Vision(tm) Ray Tracer creates three-dimensional, photo-realistic images using a rendering technique called ray tracing. Ray tracing produces very high quality images with realistic reflections, shading, perspective, and other effects.
