Raytrace software? For (micro)stock...

Hi,

What 3d raytrace software is used for generating stock images?  ???
I want to give it a try (used autocad/inventor at work), but don't want to start with buying a $$$ 3d software package  :(. And perhaps something more image related (iso technical)
Is there something free or cheap around that generates good enough quality for the stock sites?


Thanks,
Bjorn

The tulips looks a bit plastic still, but sold 100x...

Leo Blanchette:
I've never heard of that one. Can it be used in conjunction with any 3d package? Yafray is pretty good all the way around though.
