Pixar RenderMan Team at SIGGRAPH 2012


SIGGRAPH 2012 is the 39th International Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques - in other words it's a technology geeks dream and we're sad to be missing out.

The conference, which began on August 5th and concludes on August 9th will be filled with many great exhibitors who are paving a technological pathway to the future.

Pixar announced that the RenderMan team will be present at the SIGGRAPH conference to not only provide new insights to the countless advances that they have achieved (RenderMan 4.0, RenderMan On Demand and RenderMan Pro Server 17.0) but they will also have giveaways for their coveted walking teapots - a prize we continue to search for.

Below are some tweets and photos from SIGGRAPH 2012 by Peter Moxom, Pixar's World Wide RenderMan Channels Manager:


Below is the Press Release that details more on what the RenderMan team will discuss:


EMERYVILLE, CA – Pixar Animation Studios announced that the RenderMan team will present new insights at SIGGRAPH 2012 into its very latest rendering technologies, including upcoming releases RenderMan Studio 4.0 and RenderMan Pro Server 17.0, along with live demonstrations of RenderMan On Demand, Pixar’s new cloud rendering service. Emphasizing the versatility and performance advantages of RenderMan’s hybrid architecture, the presentations will focus on features such as a sophisticated system for ray-traced multi-bounce global illumination, interactive ray-traced re-rendering, deep textures, and methods for Maya artists to manage and integrate VFX with a minimal learning curve. Special presentations from major studios such as Weta Digital, ILM, Cluster Studios, and Laika, will be complimented by RenderMan workflow demonstrations with affiliated solutions from The Foundry, Pixologic, GreenButton, Golaem, and Lollipop Shaders. Finally, demonstrations of Pixar’s cloud rendering service, RenderMan On Demand, will be presented regularly along with a special SIGGRAPH promotion offering free cloud rendering cycles to RenderMan users.
"In always rapidly paced advertising projects with tight deadlines, short budgets and a small team, RenderMan has proven to be the right tool offering superb creative power so our artists can create great imagery with quick response times, and it’s fun and thrilling to use," said Armando “Doc” Ricalde CTO of Cluster Studios.
"RenderMan on Demand has been a lifesaver for us. On a recent job, an animation that would've taken a month to render in-house was rendered within a day on the cloud. Because of its speed and accessibility, it has become an integral part of our pipeline," said Simon Sangar, Senior VFX Artist, Bradley and Montgomery.
