- current release 3.1.2 from February 2009 last public release
- Standalone renderer
- plugin renderer for maya
Pico is still under development and its used in productions, there are some youtube videos that show the renderer in action. But due to low interest, the public version and support has been closed. So it is used as a proprietaray renderer only. But it is still alive.
Pico is a graphics engine which after slight modifications can be used also for interactive purposes like interactive digital art, games, presentations, screensavers, benchmarks and whatever you want. It may also be used as purely GPU driven renderer for Maya. In other words it can be used as very fast renderer for Maya. Those two purposes traditionally doesn't fit together too well but in case of pico it's a different story.
