there's no easy way to use another renderer right now in lw. technically, that's what the 'pixel filter' plugins were supposed to allow for but evidently, there's not a great back and forth going there to allow for total swapout of renderer.

you have to hope that there is an exporter plugin available to translate your scene.

there's 'lightman' for renderman. it's commercial and not sure how much of a scene it supports.
