Discovering RenderMan Stylized Looks

About this event

In this session, we’ll look ahead at the amazing NPR tools currently in development at Pixar that promise to transform RenderMan into a tool for any type of look creation, from photorealistic images to any other artistic genre, from comics to anime, from illustration to watercolor … or anything you can imagine. 

Pixar’s Dylan Sisson will chat with RenderMan Lead NPR Developer, Christos Obretenov, about these upcoming tools, and will also talk with another early adopter, Ernst Janssen Groesbeek from 9 to 3 Animation, about his work with RenderMan Stylized Looks … while also showing how this new technology is integrated in version 24.
