well worth reading.

Announcing OpenDR, an approximate differentiable renderer. We take "vision as inverse graphics" literally.

OpenDR is an open-source Python-based toolkit for concisely rendering and optimizing graphics models to match image or depth evidence in a differentiable manner. 

Everything you need is here: http://open-dr.org/

For details, see the paper:

OpenDR: An Approximate Differentiable Renderer
Loper, M.M. and Black, M.J.
ECCV 2014.
pdf: http://files.is.tue.mpg.de/black/papers/OpenDR.pdf

If you are at ECCV, come to poster 19 on Thursday,1400–1645, Session 4B, Gartensaal.
