RenderMan 21
Thursday, 19 January 2017 09:49

For the first time, RenderMan now ships with the same shaders & lights used at Pixar. This major release represents the maturation of the RIS rendering framework. RenderMan is now more than just a renderer; it is a complete shading and lighting ecosystem, more powerful, accessible, and comprehensive than ever before.

  • Pixar Production Shaders - Use Pixar Surface to create everything from glass to the most incredibly subtle skin you can image. The new Pixar Displacement was written for the RIS framework, and supports advanced features, like 32bit vector displacements.
  • Pixar Production Lights - RenderMan’s lighting system has been completely rewritten to deliver the highest performance possible on today’s modern hardware, and includes innovative techniques for artifact suppression and new methods for increased efficiency.
  • Pixar Surface Collection - The new library of physically based materials shipping with Pixar Surface makes it easy to dial in any type of material: plastics, metals, ceramics, rocks, liquids, and more.
  • Advanced Patterns - Create new types of looks quickly with RenderMan’s expanding suite of advanced patterns for real productions.
  • Streamlined UI - Now that the RIS Framework has been fully embraced, all legacy attributes and options have been removed (everything related to the now deprecated Reyes), allowing artists to focus less on knobs and levers and more on the creative process.
  • Better Denoising - Now the Denoiser gets upgraded with several new features.
  • VR Ready
