THE UPDATE INTRODUCES INTERACTIVE PERFORMANCE AS WELL AS STATE-OF-THE-ART FEATURES
Pixar has released the latest version of its Academy Award-winning rendering software, renderman. the update focuses on artist productivity, improving data management and a host of new features. with version 22 renderman is aiming to redefine production rendering by delivering photorealism with artistic controls, enhanced interactivity, and robust scalability.
A major update to the software’s core architecture means that renderman can support ‘live rendering’ at every stage of the pipeline, providing fluid feedback for faster iteration. improved workflows will also enable new kinds of collaboration between filmmakers, transforming traditional pipelines.
the release also introduces the advanced lighting technology used on Pixar’s own animated feature films, including Finding Dory, Cars 3, Coco and Incredibles 2. Pixar’s research and development division has worked to provide features that allow users to produce superior imagery faster. As a result renderman 22 delivers the groundwork for universal scene description, a new scene management technology developed by Pixar. renderman artist tools for Maya, Katana, and Houdini have all been comprehensively updated. the upgrades make live rendering faster and more robust while also supporting new kinds of interactive edits such as modelling, animation and grooming.
