Curious to see if/how SESI supports this...

Subject: Ptex open source release

We are happy to announce that the Disney Ptex library has been
released as open source under the BSD license.  The Ptex library is
the same production-proven code used at Disney and included with
Pixar's PRMan, and includes full support for reading, writing,
caching, and filtering Ptex texture files.

The Ptex home page is located at http://ptex.us, and the source code
is hosted at http://github.com/wdas/ptex/.

We have set up a discussion group at http://groups.google.com/group/ptex
along with a related http://groups.google.com/group/ptex-announce group.
We encourage your comments and questions.

We expect to follow Ptex with other open source projects that we hope
the community will find beneficial.  We will soon be launching a new
Walt Disney Animation Studios Technology page under
http://disneyanimation.com.  It will include links to our open source
projects as will as a library of recent publications.

An additional announcement will be sent when the Technology site goes
live.  All further announcements will be made to the ptexannounce

Thanks for your interest!
