|Make beautiful images with Pixar software - free!|
RenderMan is Pixar's in-house technology for rendering out the beautiful images that fans of their films have gotten used to. Basically, it is what Pixar use to make their cartoons look gorgeous.
Does Renderman work with Maya?
Yes. RenderMan can be plugged into one of the following tools: Maya, Houdini, Katana, or Cinema4D. If you use one of those packages you can try RenderMan. You can also use RenderMan if you have your own custom tool(s) for generating renderable 3D assets (RIB) for purposes such as scientific visualization. RenderMan by itself does not have a user interface or GUI.
Where can we get hold of it?
Renderman can be downloaded (strictly for non-commercial use) right here.
