A RenderMan Interface-compatible display driver and Nuke plugin for direct rendering into the Nuke interface.  RmanConnect is based on a simple Client/Server model, suitable for rendering to/from a variety of applications. The TCP/IP interface code is handled using the Boost.Asio library. The display driver will theoretically build using any RenderMan-compatible renderer but the included CMake build script assumes you have 3Delight installed.
