Pixar's Renderman is so very not free. Youre going to have to call Pixar and try to order it directly from them. You may not even be able to get it from them as theyre very protective of their inhouse software. For good reason.

But, someone (whom I talk with on IRC), say that he can download it, but he didn't want to tell me the address.
I'm sorry weed, I can't accept your answer, because that's not the answer I want.

People on IRC can download lots of things but most of the time ITS NOT LEGAL. Sometimes the answer we want isnt the one thats reality.

Highfive + Dolby Voice = No More Audio Complaints!

Poor audio quality is one of the top reasons people don’t use video conferencing. Get the crispest, clearest audio powered by Dolby Voice in every meeting. Highfive and Dolby Voice deliver the best video conferencing and audio experience for every meeting and every room.

Sillycorn, you CAN NOT obtain a copy of Pixar's Renderman without obtaining a license (very hard to do) and paying a substantial amount for it. Not only is it propriatary software, but it is currently implemented on only a few types of hardware systems, and none of those now exist outside Pixar studios.

However, the Renderman program specifications are shared by the 3D graphics developer community (or those of us interested in this stuff).  This is always under development.

You CAN obtain a copy of the best implementation of the current version of the program by going to --

http://www.bmrt.org

This site is for Larry Grit'z Blue Moon Rendering Tools.  There is a wealth of information on this site if you want to get into Renderman production.

....and I'll bet a nickle this is what your IRC friend really was talking about. You've probably never noticed that a certain amount of boasting and exageration goes on in the IRC community, have you?

Actually i believe Pixar Renderman runs on Macs which are certainly available outside Pixar. Steve Jobs is afterall the CEO of both companies..;)

The answer you want sometimes isnt the answer thats correct. You still need to award points for a correct answer.
