Renderman is what Pixar Animation Studios use for film like Toy Story and Monsters Inc.

MentalRay and Pixar's Renderman are both available for Maya 4, but there are no betas or freebies like the MentalRay for 4.5 unfortunately. Probably the two best renderers out there today...but the prices reflect that!

Look here for more info-

MentalRay

Renderman
