Ok, so the knobs where rendered with Blender. Whatabout the rest?

It's been a while since the last time I used Blender. I was a bit disappointed
that I had to find workarounds for so many things which were not (directly)
supported, like rendering glass material for example.
Since then I "emulated" 3D pix with a vector graphic drawing tool like
Inkscape. Which sometimes brings you faster to get what you want and
sometimes not. But hey, doesn't Qt4 finally support .svg rendering? Aliasing
free scaling of skins / themes, isn't that cool?
