RenderMan for Maya Unveiled



Thursday April 7th 2005 at 5.00pm.

Pixar is pleased to announce the worldwide launch event for RenderMan for Maya a completely new rendering workflow for Maya artists aspiring to the highest levels of movie quality rendering available only through Pixar's award-winning RenderMan technology.

Holy crap! I messed around with Renderman-compliant renderers with "Maya integration" -- yea right, I had to rebuild every danged shader or texture in my entire scene to be RIB compliant... talked to a friend who worked with RAT and PRMan and aparently its exactly the same for the real deal too.

Maybe we just both are idiots and didn't see an easy way -- but regardless I hope this solves many issues.

Just for 1000$ too --

RMan is awesome- but its really challenging. I had a free one, a while back, but it wasnt PRman...

I am probably going to download the free trial, cuz RMan is awesome!
