Blender Extended Expressive Renderer (BEER) is a free and open source realtime non-photoreal (NPR) rendering engine. The main feature of BEER is the ability to extend the rendering capability from the ease of adding custom shaders to a customizable shader graph. Since NPR is a journey of endless styles which never settle, we need a render engine which will fulfill all the stylized needs.

As photorealistic rendering has evolved and render engines have grown in complexity, stylized rendering have become more and more an afterthought that barely fits in their (photoreal render engines) workflows.
So I’m confident there’s enough potential for a community funded NPR focused renderer.Miguel Pozo, BEER backend developer
