Qt Quick 2D Renderer

Qt Quick 2D Renderer is an alternative renderer for Qt Quick 2 that uses the Raster paint engine to render the contents of the scene graph instead of OpenGL. As a result of not using OpenGL to render the scene graph, some features and optimizations are no longer available. Most Qt Quick 2 applications will run without modification though any attempts to use unsupported features will be ignored. By using the Qt Quick 2D Renderer it is now possible to run Qt Quick 2 applications on hardware and platforms that do not have OpenGL support.

Qt Quick 2D Renderer is a Qt module that contains a scene graph renderer plugin.

To use Qt Quick 2D Renderer add the following to your run environment:

export QMLSCENE_DEVICE=softwarecontext
